We have rain over the region early this morning with temperatures mainly in the upper 30s, winds are light. The only sub-freezing temperature currently in the state is 30 degrees at High Point so that is the only area that may have some winter type precipitation.
Rain will continue most of the day, there may be a brief break in the rain around midday into the early afternoon but rain will return for this evening’s rush. The rain will end this evening. Temperatures will be milder reaching the 50s.
Much colder weather will follow the storm system, our high temperature may be recorded just after midnight and not rise during the day staying in the 30s, winds gusting to 30 mph on Tuesday will make it feel much colder despite plenty of sunshine.
Near record cold early Wednesday morning as most areas will drop into the teens.
Still quite cold on Wednesday but with diminishing winds, dry weather will continue.
Not as cold on Thursday but another cold front will cross the area in the afternoon.
The front will be followed by a reinforcing surge of cold air for Friday and Saturday but the cold won’t be as harsh as the middle of this week. Luckily it will remain dry and no snow is anticipated.
