A strong upper level disturbance will move into the area late this evening and during the early overnight hours. This will bring a few clouds and could produce a brief shower or a few sprinkles. It is even possible there could be a little thunder due to the pocket of cold air and lift aloft.

If precipitation falls and it falls with enough intensity, there could even be a few flakes of snow mixed. Either way, moisture appears limited. Late tonight skies clear and we should dip to near 30.

Tomorrow will be an unusual day for late March, mostly sunny and still very cold. Highs only in the lower 40s and winds gusting to near 25 will produce wind chills in the 20s.   Friday after a cold morning will moderate to the lower 50s.

Over the weekend another surge of cold air is expected and we expect rain to return. By late weekend, we expect some of this rain to fall as snow in the mountains and it is possible it could even mix with snow at times in the Triad area on Sunday night.
