A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the central portion of the FOX8 viewing area as rain is expected to transition to sleet on Monday afternoon.
Precipitation will initially be all rain for the morning hours with temperatures in the mid-50s. As the morning progresses, a cold front will sag into the Piedmont from NE to SW, causing temperatures to tumble into near freezing by early afternoon.
This change will cause rain to transition to sleet, and total accumulation may be up to 1/2 inch, just north of the Triad.
This layer of sleet may have a dusting of snow on top as all of the precipitation tapers off early in the evening.
