Mix of rain, light snow expected Tuesday morning

Initially, temperatures will start above freezing, but may fall as the precipitation moves in. Don’t be surprised if snow falls at a higher rate at times after sunrise.

Any snow accumulation will be confined to grassy surfaces and elevated areas like car tops.

An upper level disturbance, paired with a strong coastal low, will intensify off the coast of North Carolina later today, producing breezy conditions in the Piedmont.

Winds will increase to 10-15 mph overnight as skies clear and temperatures tumble to the lower 20s. Wind chills by daybreak are expected to be 12 degrees to 16 degrees Рvery uncomfortable for kids at the bus stop.

Sunshine takes over Wednesday but high temperatures stay well below the average, topping out in the mid-40s. Our normal high is 64, so this is a significant cold air mass for this time of year.

Expect a recovery in temperatures by the end of the week, but this warm-up will be accompanied by wet weather. Scattered showers are likely both Friday and Saturday.
