Above is today's edition of the Carolina Weather Video.
I had a great time yesterday afternoon speaking to a good group of students at Hickory Grove Christian School. They were a great and very knowledgeable group!
It is a cold start today with many Piedmont temps in the low to mid 20s. Up in the mountains, some spots are in the single digits.
We will see lots of sunshine today with highs in the 40s. Another very cold one is coming tonight with lows again well down into the 20s.
Our weekend storm system still looks very weak and moisture starved around here. Just ahead of it, we will see lots of sunshine tomorrow with highs up in the low to mid 50s. Then some clouds roll in tomorrow night into Sunday morning, and I can't rule out a few flurries. But I just don't expect any significant precip at this point.
Up in the mountains, some snow showers look likely in the favored northwest facing locations Sunday and Sunday night.
We will be quite chilly around here behind that weak system Sunday into Monday and Tuesday. Highs will again be in the 40s with lows again way down in the 20s.
However, I still anticipate a pattern change next week with much milder air arriving for the second half of the week.
Busy weekend ahead....Jayden has her final cheer leading game of the season tomorrow followed by a team get-together. Then Sunday morning, she is singing in church in the children's choir, and after church I am taking her up to the mountains for some sledding and skiing Sunday afternoon and Monday.
I will be off Monday morning, but I will be back here bright and early Tuesday morning. Enjoy the weekend!
