**WINTER STORM WARNING from the Triad to the north**

**WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY south of the Triad**

Precipitation is slowly changing from snow to sleet from the Triad northward. South of the Triad, precipitation is freezing rain and sleet.

Accumulations have been near 1 inch near I-40, increasing to 2 inches or more north of the Triad.  South of I-40, accumulations are little to none.

For the rest of the day, precipitation will transition to freezing drizzle and light freezing rain.  The quantity is going to be low, perhaps producing a glaze of 0.05 of an inch, so we are not expecting widespread issues with power outages due to heavy ice.  Temperatures will stay below freezing for most of the day.

Overnight, a surge of warm air is going to move through from south to north, carrying temperatures from the lower-30s into the lower-40s by daybreak.  There will be a line of heavy rain that crosses the Piedmont overnight, melting most of the snow and sleet, and it will be accompanied by gusty winds between 18 and 22 mph.

During the day on Tuesday, skies are going to gradually clear out and temperatures will be in the lower-50s.  Winds are going to continue to be breezy, between 10 and 15 mph.

The rest of the week is superb!  Highs will stay in the 50s through Friday with dry weather. By the weekend, highs will be in the mid-60s.
