Good Morning Folks! Temps are fairly cold across the region as they sit in the mid teens – mid 20’s depending upon elevation and we don’t expect them to rise to far this afternoon, only climbing to the upper 20’s – upper 30’s. Northerly flow across the region will continue today and as such we keep enough moisture around to produce partly cloudy – partly sunny skies across the region, with enough low level moisture this morning to squeeze out some flurries before midday. Tonight we expect mostly cloudy skies to setup shop, however temps will still be able to dip into the upper teens – mid 20’s as weak cold air damming develops across the Carolinas.
With weak cold air damming setting up this weekend, we can expect another chilly day for Saturday as temps only rise to the low 30’s – low 40’s depending upon elevation. There should be a mixed bag of clouds and sun on Saturday with the southernmost portion of the region dealing with more clouds than areas along the TN line, as places such as Highlands and Lake Toxaway are closer to the cold air damming influence. Overnight into Sunday the models show a weak disturbance swinging through the region, more so during the pre dawn hours on Sunday, however with temps in the mid 20’s – low 30’s it is possible sleet or freezing rain develops before sunrise. We do not expect this to be a big deal as the moisture looks rather weak... click here for more
