Wednesday Afternoon

>> Wednesday, January 30, 2008

Lots of sun this afternoon with cooler temps in place. It will be cold tonight with lows in the mid 20s for most Piedmont locales.

It is interesting to watch our next storm system on the modeling. Our in-house model (Stormcast is its on-air name) continues to push the idea of significant sleet occurring north and west of I-85. It has done this for several runs in a row now. Most other modeling keeps the Piedmont as a cold rain.

For my afternoon forecast package, I have mentioned the chance for some sleet mixing in with the rain tomorrow night north and west of I-85. This airmass is quite dry, and I am sure there will be a good deal of evaporational cooling.

Travel problems?? I am leaning toward 'no' at this point, but we will keep watching it.

I also still like the chances of this being a good soaking rain for most...maybe between 0.75" and 1.5". That would be fantastic....
