After another dry day today, our next system rolls through tomorrow.
First of all, for the piedmont, this is a rain event, albeit a chilly rain event. In places like the Triad, the temp could very well be in the 30s all day long tomorrow.
As the precip first arrives, a brief period of wintry precip is possible. Outside of the mountains, this will not be a big deal.
However, let me say that I am a bit concerned about some locations in the northwest NC mountains tomorrow. For instance, the NAM model in Boone has a quick hit of some snow followed by an extended period of freezing rain....enough to be significant.
So I would caution those of you in the NW NC mountains and up into the Virginias to pay attention to this system, even though you might not be hearing much about it.
The system will depart in time for dry weather Sunday (aside from some upslope mountain snow), and the dry weather will persist much of next week.
Here's today's video with more:
