It’s a cold, rainy and windy day in the High Country. The National Weather Service continues to forecast 70% chance of rain and possible thunderstorms this afternoon. Temps are much cooler today than yesterday with most of the local home weather reporting stations on Weather Underground reporting lower to mid 50s (as of 10:30am)

The rain and wind are also taking a toll on the leaves, with the sights of bare or almost bare trees becoming the norm. Because of the high winds a Wind Advisory is in effect from midnight tonight until 4pm Thursday.

And we still have the possibility of snow Thursday and Friday. Here’s the NWS forecast for Boone:
