Bitterly cold and very windy today! Continued very cold on Saturday with less wind! Snow likely Sunday night through Tuesday!

Good morning

Skies are partly cloudy early on this Friday morning and it is very cold and windy, temperatures at 5 a.m. ranged from 17 in Clifton down to 6 at High Point. Winds are gusting to 35 mph making it feel much colder.



RECORD HIGH: 68 – 2002 RECORD LOW: -2 – 1977


The combination of a strong storm well out in the Atlantic and high pressure to our west will cause a very strong northwest flow of bitterly cold air. Winds will gust to above 40 mph at times. Highs will only reach the low 20s and with the wind it will feel like the single digits much of today. There is a slight chance of some snow flurries especially over inland areas.

Still very cold on Saturday, but as the high pressure builds closer to us winds will diminish & skies will be mostly clear.

A complex low pressure system will approach the area on Sunday with increasing cloudiness, snow is likely by Sunday night and should continue through Tuesday. The computer models are still not in agreement of how much snow will fall with most models indicating almost a foot of snow, but the latest European model has most of the heavy snow just to our south only giving the area less than 6 inches of the white stuff.

Mostly fair with seasonably cold temperatures Wednesday and Thursday.

Milder on Friday with a chance of rain.
