WINTER IS STILL HERE
High pressure sliding in tonight will help to lighten the winds. Skies will clear, and with lighter winds, temperatures will fall quickly to the 20s by morning.

Wind Speed Trend 24 Hours iCast - NOW

The day begins with sunshine but quickly diminishes as clouds roll back in during the day. A fast, moving clipper system dives by to our south, then off the Carolina coast, Thursday night into Friday morning.

It will track to the northeast but far enough off shore to have no further impact on us. Light snow begins after 8pm Thursday and exits by Friday around 10am. A coating to 2” possible and since the bulk arrives in the overnight period, it will stick to the surfaces and perhaps even on the roads.

What _to_Expect STORM

Expect a slower commute Friday morning. High temperatures both days remain in the 30s. High pressure returns but only briefly, as another clipper slides in Saturday night. Most of the day will be dry with increasing clouds and highs around 40 degrees. This next clipper system is much weaker, and moisture starved but could spit out a few flurries. Sunshine returns by Sunday. I expect temperatures to warm into the middle 40s.

THE WEEK FEATURES SOME WARMTH!
Ridge builds in early next week. High pressure anchors in the Atlantic, otherwise, known as a Bermuda High. Strong south-southwesterly flow sets up by Tuesday. This will warm temperatures well into the 60s under mostly sunny skies. There is a possibility we get to enjoy 70 degree weather by the middle of the week. Next chance for wet weather holds off until Wednesday night into Thursday.
