Morning showers will continue Wednesday but as temperatures drop, the Triad will see some snow showers through 2 p.m.

No accumulation is expected.

As the low pressure continues up the East Coast, winds will shift to the northwest and bring a cold front through the area, which will again lower temperatures.

School closings and delays

Meteorologist Emily Byrd says the rain will move out of the Triad late morning and by lunchtime central North Carolina could see snow flurries moving in from the West, but no accumulation.

By late Wednesday, expect clouds to start clearing and temperatures to continue falling. After temperatures hover near 40 throughout the day, we will tumble to the lower 20s on Thursday morning.

Thanksgiving Day looks cold and dry with highs near 40 and lows in the middle 20s. Friday through Saturday will be dry with highs in the 40s and lows in the 20s.

We may see some showers again on Sunday, but a better chance on Monday. Highs early next week should head back to the 50s.

Latest from Emily Byrd:

Windy and cold today!

Scattered showers continue as a strong cold front moves eastward. Precipitation may end as a little snow in the early afternoon, but no accumulation is expected.

High temperatures were reached early in the day, in the mid-40's for the Piedmont. Through the day, cold air will pour into the state from the northwest. As a result, temperatures will tumble into the mid-30's by the evening commute.

In higher elevations of North Carolina, there is a Winter Storm Warning until 6 pm for Ashe and Watauga counties, and a Winter Weather Advisory until 6 pm for Alleghany county.

Travel will likely be slow, with snow in the forecast and winds reducing visibility.

Thanksgiving Day is looking marvelous, with sunny skies! Bundle up as you head outside, because morning lows will be near 20° and highs will only be near 40°!
