A cold, dry airmass remain in place around the region today. Clouds will continue to thicken today, and highs will struggle to make it toward the 40 degree mark.
Precip will begin to spread in late this afternoon, and for the I-85 corridor, I anticipate a period of sleet and rain before kicking over to all rain. As the rain settles in, temps in many spots will drop to around the freezing mark before slowly warming overnight. However, I don't think the I-85 corridor will see any overly significant icing. Once you travel into the foothills, the potential for icing is much higher.
It is a close call, and we will have to watch temperature and radar trends carefully as we head into this evening.
Rain will exit tomorrow morning, but some drizzle will linger with highs in the low to mid 40s.
Monday will be much milder and dry, and then rain arrives again Tuesday.
