Good Morning Folks! We round out the month of January on a fairly good note with mostly sunny skies overhead and temps pushing to normal levels this afternoon; low 40’s – low 50’s depending upon elevation. Some late day clouds will arrive just before or slightly after sunset and will increase throughout the night, with mostly cloudy skies overhead by Sunday morning. Temps will dip into the mid 20’s – low 30’s depending upon elevation with no precip expected through the night.
Sunday features scattered showers across the region with the timeline slightly shifted to the afternoon and this will translate into reduced snowfall chances. Regardless if the chance was high or not, most if not all of SW NC would kick over rain as temps push into the low – upper 40’s depending upon elevation. When we mentioned the transition over to rain, light snowfall only applies to elevations above 5000’ and accumulations are possible, but not expected to be impactful due to the short lived nature and wet snow consistency. A half inch is a safe bet for most of the region pertaining to rainfall and it would not surprise us to learn that an inch of rain falls across the region in a few spots before the kick back over to snow. This transition back over to snow will take place overnight into Monday, perhaps sometime around midnight and this event is better suited for the TN line, however a good portion of SW NC will see snow... click here for more
