Brightening Skies & Cold Today, Sunny & Cold Tuesday & Wednesday 

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


Lingering snow showers early this afternoon will continue to wind down and we’ll see varying amounts of clouds and sunshine for the remainder of the daylight hours. Temperatures will be below average this afternoon with highs in the upper teens to mid-20s.


High pressure will slide into the region Tuesday and Wednesday providing us with plenty of sunshine both days. Temperatures will be cold especially Tuesday with highs in the upper single numbers to mid-teens. Highs will be a bit warmer Wednesday with temperatures reaching the 20s during the afternoon. Low pressure is forecast to exit the Carolina coastline Wednesday night then head northward from there. The question remains, how close to the east coast will the storm track? As usual, computer model data differs with regard to the storm track and the exact storm track will determine what we see, if anything, for precipitation types and amounts. At this point, it looks like there is enough consensus that the storm will track close enough to the east coast to bring a light to moderate snow to much of the state with some mixed precipitation possible closer to the coast. We’ll keep a close eye on this storm and fine tune the track and details as new data comes in over the next 24-48 hours. We could see another storm move into the region for the start of the weekend.



Rest of Today: variably cloudy with a few snow showers mainly early this afternoon. Highs between 17°-28°. Winds will become northwest 5-15 MPH.


Tonight: clear to partly cloudy. Lows between -13° to +6°. Northwest wind 5-10 MPH.


Tuesday: partly to mostly sunny. Colder with highs between 8°-18°. Northwest wind 8-15 MPH. Wind chills will be near or below 0°.


Wednesday: mostly sunny with highs in the 20s.


Thursday: snow and mixed precipitation possible. Highs in the upper 20s to mid-30s.


Friday: morning snow possible then brightening skies during the afternoon. Highs in the upper 20s to low 30s.
