Possible 50+ mph gusts tomorrow night above 3500' with the rain.  That'll strip a lot of leaves for sure.

I went back over my aerials for better edits as my monitor was messing me up. Here are a few of those (I am aware the resolution on these attachments are squashed quite a bit):

12K name and GFS both suggest some backend flurries are possible in the favored border areas overnight Thursday into early Friday morning. And this weekend looks downright cold.

Yes sir. Winter is coming.

Yeah iv been noticing that as well. Especially in the higher elevations around the Boone area. Also im liking how the Euro kind of reloads the trough in the East. The GFS does not do that so we will see what happens but this seasons in seasons weather is damn near perfect and something we really haven't seen for this time if the year much lately.

Nearing peak color here near 3400’ at Balsam Gap, only hold outs seem to be a few oaks, beeches and wild cherries.  Poplars have changed and are all about bare now, hickory’s are a brilliant yellow  and dropping leaves more and more, maples are a blaze of yellows, oranges and reds. Keep trying to upload a picture of the view from the living room through the trees with no luck.

The 12 GFS is throwing out a few flakes for Thursday night and then some upslope snow for the 3rd also with another cold front pushing in. Nothing major at this time but it will be nice to see it steadily cold with a few flakes in the air. The NAM is on board for tomorrow night also and looks a bit more impressive than the GFS.
