Rain Ending, Colder Wednesday

Rain generally tapers off overnight and other than some lingering light rain early in the morning Wednesday is dry and colder. Next up, a disturbance moves through the northern Gulf Thursday and there's plenty of cold air in place. However, the brunt of the moisture is positioned to our south and east- go figure. Our thinking includes light snow developing late-morning Thursday and ending Thursday night. You know how this winter has gone... sunshine returns Friday though it stays quite cold.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front moves through tonight and stalls along the Gulf Coast Wednesday night. Meaningful rain is generally an afternoon to nighttime feature, but drizzly kind of stuff develops beforehand. Light rain lingers early tomorrow morning and then we're left with mostly cloudy skies and chilly temperatures.

A wave of low pressure rides along the stalled frontal boundary Thursday with moisture in tow. Cold air is not in question, however, northwest NC is on the northern fringe of the moisture swath. Our thinking includes light snow developing late-morning and ending Thursday night, give or take a few hours. As it stands now a dusting to 2" is fair game, maybe some locations come in a little higher. Keep your expectations low and you won't be disappointed.

Canadian based high pressure moves overhead Friday keeping the cold air intact, sunshine returns. The high shifts towards the coast Saturday allowing for moderating temperatures over the weekend.

The next wet weather maker ejects from the Southwest Sunday. Rain returns late Sunday night, perhaps as a brief wintry mix, and continues Monday into Monday night.
