Two systems through the weekend will produce winter weather in some areas that don't usually see much of this activity over the course of a year.
The first system will move through the Southeast early today and will make it off the Carolina's coast by this afternoon. This system will produce a few inches of snow in parts of the Blue Ridge Mountains from northeast GA to southwest VA, and then eastward into parts of the Piedmont of NC. Mostly rain is expected for southeast VA, the Coastal Plains of NC, and into much of SC with some heavy downpours possible mainly in NC.
The second system will work its way from the Pacific NW today to the High Plains by Saturday night, and into the southern Mississippi River Valley by Sunday night. This system also will potentially produce several inches of snow first in southeast CO, northeast NM, and the panhandles of TX and OK Saturday night into early Sunday, and then eastward across northern TX, southern OK, northern LA, southern AR, and west-central MS throughout Sunday into Sunday night.
