But it looks like the coming weekend should bring some much needed sunshine and a return to near normal temperatures. Just remember: The risk for frost and freeze is not over just yet.

However, Dec. 10's nighttime cold front brought an end to the warmth. It is feeling like the holiday season has finally arrived — even bringing some light snow to the higher elevations in WNC. The image below shows a light dusting of fine snow on a white pine at 4,000 ft in Madison County on Tuesday morning, Dec. 11.
Snowflakes were flying earlier this week, as Valentine’s Day started off white at the higher elevations.
