A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until noon today.

The main impact in the Piedmont will be bridges, overpasses, decks, etc.   We expect patchy drizzle and temperatures in the 20’s this morning.  The good news is that temperatures will be above freezing by noon, and headed for the mid-30’s by this afternoon.

Ice amounts will be light in the Triad, less than 0.05″ and even less to the northwest.   Still, it does not take much to make surfaces slippery.   There will be greater amounts to the east, with over 0.10″ south and east of the Triad cities.   Areas near and east of Raleigh will see 0.10 to near 0.20″ of freezing rain.

Clouds will be persistent overnight, but no precipitation is in the forecast.  Low temperatures will settle back to the upper 20’s by daybreak on Thursday.

Thursday will offer more chances of some sunshine, (especially late in the day), but the beginning of the day may be mostly cloudy.  For those early hours, there is a 20 percent chance of a light shower, but temperatures will keep all precipitation liquid with a high of 46°.

Expect mostly sunny skies for most of the Friday-Sunday time period, with just a few clouds starting to move in by late in the weekend.  Highs will be comfortable, in the lower- to mid-50’s.
