Cold air and clippers...

>> Friday, February 01, 2013

The door is open for clippers to continue to move into our region. One of those clippers has moved through this morning, and a little bit of snow did break containment from the mountains and made it into northern NC north of the Triad.

Radar shot from 5:30am:

It will be a cold day. A nice surge of arctic air will plunge in this morning just behind the clipper, and then we will only see afternoon temps in the 30s in many foothill and piedmont spots. Add in a stiff northwest wind....chilly.

Tonight will be very cold....many spots in the teens.

Another clipper will swing through Saturday night. This one looks a little bit stronger, so I think there is even a better chance of some light snow in some spots east of the mountains tomorrow night. Light is the key word here.... no big deal.

Temps remain chilly overall into next week. See the video for more specifics...

Hey Matt,

Looking at long range, is winter looking like a bust for any more snow? Seems like the setup isn't in our favor. Your thoughts?

Thanks for all your work!

I have lived in CLT for the past 10 years or so. As far as I can remember, last winter we had with a good decent snow was back in 2009 or 10? Ever since then it's been either too warm or too cold and dry after the storm then when the storms come it then gets too warm! It seems the overall weather pattern changed. Also, it seems our summers have gotten hotter over the years.
