You have certainly noticed the cool down over the past few days.   From low 80s on Tuesday to mid 70s Wednesday and now to mid 60s on Thursday.   The cool down is not done.   A big cool down will be felt this weekend.

A cold front will slide through on Friday late afternoon west and through the piedmont during the evening.   This front may produce a few showers and sprinkles.    However, our best chance for rain will come behind the front with the arrival of an upper level disturbance.   This will also bring with it very cold air aloft and should produce snow in the mountains.   The west facing slopes could see 3-6 inches of snow and most other mountain locations should see between 1-3 inches.   East of the mountains the rain may mix with wet snow early Saturday morning and most of the precip will begin to taper off near or shortly after lunch.   Areas north and west of the Triad may see a light dusting of snowfall.   The warm ground should limit accumulations even if we do see snow.   Otherwise, rain showers are expected east of the mountains on Saturday along with breezy and much colder conditions.   After a morning low in the upper 30s, highs should only reach the mid 40s on Saturday.

Skies will clear out Saturday night and lows head to the low to mid 30s.   Sunday will be chilly and sunny with highs in the lower 50s.   Lows on Sunday night should head to near 30 with a freeze likely.    Monday and Tuesday the sunny weather continues with highs back to 60 to 64.    Lows will moderate back to the 40s by Wednesday and highs up to the upper 60s.   Our next chance for showers will arrive on Wednesday and Thursday.   Highs in the upper 60s to near 70.
