Forecast Last Updated at Friday, December 13, 2019 at 6:41AM

Icy Start

We'll see an icy start this morning as light freezing rain and a little bit of sleet continue through mid morning. Temperatures should warm up above freezing for most locations by mid morning leaving us with a cold rain for the remainder of the day. Periods of rain will continue overnight into tomorrow morning but temperatures will not drop much at all tonight so no worries about ice accumulation. We dry out Saturday afternoon and Sunday looks like a nice day with sunshine and near average temperatures. We have more rain moving in for Monday night and Tuesday morning but the temperatures will be mild. The air turns sharply colder middle of the week.

Forecast Discussion

A low along the northern Gulf coast states will continue to move north bringing western NC rain through the day. Low level temperatures are cold enough for a little bit of ice accumulation this morning with some sleet and rain that freezes on contact. Temperatures will steadily rise through the day and by mid morning, just about all of the icing should be over with.

Rain will continue through tomorrow morning as a new low develops along the mid-Atlantic coast and moves north. The rain and clouds will begin to dissipate Saturday afternoon as a cold front moves through early Sunday morning. We get a bit of a respite Sunday as another low develops over the Southeast and moves northeast through the Ohio valley Monday. That system will bring us more rain Monday evening through Tuesday morning and mild temperatures until a cold front moves through Tuesday morning. The air behind this front is quite cold so expect a sharp cool down Tuesday evening and below average temperatures for mid to late week.
