Cold is the big story of the weekend. Our clouds will increase on Sunday with highs around 32 degrees.

Sunday night into early Monday morning, we expect snow to arrive in the north and west around midnight and then spread across the Piedmont-Triad. The snow will continue to about 8 a.m. Monday.

From 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Monday, the snow will mix with sleet. Then from 12 p.m. Monday to about 8 p.m. Monday, freezing rain will take over and then slowly change to rain. The change over to rain will happen from southeast to northwest.

We could see 1″ to 2″ of snow and sleet across the Triad. Higher snow totals are likely north and west of the Triad. In terms of freezing rain, we will see about 0.10″ of ice with higher totals possible north and west of the Triad.

Late Monday night into Tuesday morning, we could see over 1 inch of rain. It’s possible the rain could be heavy enough to wash away the snow and sleet that fell on Monday morning. For the rest of Tuesday, cloudy and warmer with highs near 50 degrees.

The rest of the seven day forecast is not bad. Partly cloudy to sunny for Wednesday and Thursday with highs around 50 degrees and lows in the upper 20s to lower 30s. Nice and sunny for Friday with highs in the mid-50s. We could see some showers on Saturday with highs in the lower 60s.
