|Moon Phase||Waxing Crescent Moon|
On Saturday, there is still a chance for some showers, but they will be light and patchy. The main story will be cooler temperatures. We expect our warmest temperatures in the morning with gradually falling temperatures during the day. There may be a few breaks in the clouds around midday into the afternoon, especially in the north. The south has the better chance for a shower.
Saturday night the clouds will thicken and rain chances will increase again late at night. Temperatures will slip to near freezing around 7 to 8 am Sunday and at that time we expect to see some freezing rain. There will be a chance for this most of the day as we will hover near freezing and this will likely lead to some icing on elevated surfaces. We expect icing to remain between 1/10th and 1/4 inch in the immediate Triad. If amounts exceed 1/4 inch there could be some power line and tree issues. The biggest threat of that will be northwest of the Triad in the northern foothills where 1/4 to 1/3" of freezing rain is expected. South of the Triad there will likely be a few hours of freezing rain and then temperatures are expected to slip a degree or two above freezing. Keeping southern areas between a light glaze and a 1/10th of an inch.
Monday will be milder with showers and highs back to the 50s. Then cooler Tuesday and for the rest of the week. Dry weather returns later Tuesday.
