It’s been raining all morning, and the rain will continue throughout the day. Most of it is light in nature, but periods of heavy rain are possible as we journey through the day.
A cold front has moved south of our area, but an area of low pressure will develop on that front and move off the Carolina Coast. This feature will help keep rain in our through early evening. Rainfall estimates of 1″- 2″ are possible.
As the low moves out in the Atlantic, colder air will continue to filter in behind it (not just at the surface but in the upper levels). So, the atmosphere will become conducive for a wintry mix later tonight after 10PM… and a switch to full snow (briefly) is possible before sunrise on Sunday.
Accumulations, if any, will be an inch or less… but there could be a 2-3 hour window of large, high water content snowflakes falling very early on Sunday morning (that’ll melt quickly). Otherwise, it’ll just be chilly with the sunshine making a comeback by early Sunday afternoon (if not sooner)…and highs for Sunday in the upper 40s to low 50s.
**Today… Highest temps were in the low-mid 60s early this morning after Midnight. Temps falling into the 40s through this afternoon.
Watch Meteorologist Ashley Baylor tonight for the latest on tonight’s chance for wintry precipitation.
