Van Denton provides update on chance for snow on Sunday, Monday


It still appears two systems will impact the Piedmont Triad this weekend.

The first will happen Friday night, with clouds and a few light patchy showers late tonight that could be mixed with a few flakes or sleet (mainly north). Some will get nothing tonight. Also, a few showers may linger in the morning, if you get one, it will be light, less than 0.05″.

There will be a break in the afternoon and early part of Saturday night. There could even be a few breaks in the clouds. Saturday is not likely to be a washout.

Early Sunday morning, rain returns and then picks up during the day. Sunday night we expect colder air to pull down from the north and change the rain to snow in the north and possibly all the way down to the Triad before daybreak Monday.

Our snow chance appears to be best on Monday morning. Based on the latest information, there will be little to no accumulation across much of the Piedmont. The best chance for an inch or more is near the Virginia line and across the mountains and possibly the far northwestern foothills.

The original low pressure area is expected to give way to a new low forming along the coast on Sunday evening. When a new low has to form, it complicates the entire pattern more than when we are tracking one constant low. In this type of case, confidence is lower than normal.
