Good morning everyone!
Today is the 10th anniversary of the start of my blog!
Light rain is falling over the Clifton area and is starting to change to snow over northwest sections of the state. Temperatures at 5 a.m. range from 38 in Clifton down to 31 at High Point. Winds are mainly calm.

A cold front will cross the area shortly and the rain that is falling will mix and change to snow before sunrise and accumulate 1-2 inches before ending around noon! High temperatures in the 30s this morning will fall to the 20s by sunset on a northerly flow. Clearing this evening but it will be colder with lows falling to near 10 degrees by tomorrow morning.
Arctic air will be with us through the weekend. Friday and Saturday will be the coldest days and slightly milder on Sunday. A storm developing off the North Carolina coast will stay well offshore as it moves up the coast so we will remain dry.
Mainly dry and cold much of next week with only a low chance of snow showers Tuesday night.
