Cold and rainy weekend ahead
Cold air remains over the area, but it will not be as cold tonight as it was last night.
We do expect clouds to increase overnight and a few areas of light rain, mainly over southern North Carolina late in the morning into early afternoon. Areas north of US 64, this rain could mix with a little wet snow if the intensity is great enough. There will be a lull in the precipitation during the afternoon and possibly a few breaks in the clouds by late afternoon.
Saturday night we expect rain to return again late at night. This rain will pick up during the day on Sunday and temperatures should remain cold. Highs on Sunday are expected to remain cold in the 30s.
By Sunday night as we slip back to the lower 30s, there may be some patch freezing drizzle, especially north of the Triad. Also, areas mainly north of the Triad may see some of the rain mix with wet snow Sunday night into early Monday morning. Once the precipitation moves out early Monday, the rest of the week looks dry, but continued cold.
