A large high pressure extending from the middle of the country will give us colder temperatures today, we should see some high cloudiness this afternoon as a low pressure well to our south moves offshore. This system is expected to give snow to parts of North Carolina and Virginia.
Mostly sunny on Friday and continued cold, lows Friday morning should drop down to the mid teens and rise to the 30s in the afternoon.
As the high pressure moves offshore a southwesterly flow will bring milder air into our area for the weekend and we will stay dry.
Dry and mild during the day on Monday but a frontal system is expected to give us a chance of rain Monday night into Tuesday.
High pressure will then build in to the area on Wednesday, temperatures will continue to be mild.
Colder late next week and there is some indications that a storm will develop on Thursday and depending on the track there is a chance that the precipitation will be snow but this is still a week away so plenty of time to track this potential storm.
