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...
