Above is today's video... give it a look.

North Carolina's little bout with freezing rain has ended this morning as temps have slowly risen above freezing in the vast majority of areas. This was far from a big ice storm around most of North Carolina, but the ice was more significant up in the Virginias, as expected.

We will be dealing with a stubborn wedge today and tonight, so temps will only slowly climb today and hold near steady tonight. Look for occasional rain and drizzle today, tonight, and through tomorrow morning. Some snow is possible up in the Virginias tomorrow morning as the final wave of low pressure moves through.

Following this system, look for lots of sun but cold temps Wed through Fri. Highs and lows will be a good deal below average for mid-December.

Our next system rolls in Saturday. Some model runs over the past few days, including the 12z Euro from yesterday, brought a nice snow event to much of NC with that one. However, that scenario is unlikely, and I expect a mainly rain event. If precip arrived early enough Saturday morning, I suppose a brief period of wintry precip would be possible, but at this point, that looks unlikely and no big deal.

I see no sign at all of any prolonged significant warm-up over the next couple of weeks. In fact, we might have another big shot of cold air next week.
