It now appears southeast North Carolina could see some light snow late tonight and into early tomorrow! Before we see the chance of wintry weather tonight we have a few weather issues we must deal with this morning. A dense fog advisory is in effect through early morning for the entire area. Use your low beam headlights and don't follow the car in front of you too closely. In addition with the rain we saw yesterday and temperatures hovering near the freezing mark, we could see some black ice on bridges and overpasses so be careful! Later today it will be mostly cloudy and cool with highs in the low 50's. Tonight a fast moving low will move into northwest South Carolina. This storm will race offshore early tomorrow morning. It looks like we will see rain quickly changing to light snow by late evening. Overnight lows will be in the low and mid 30's with some light accumulation possible. Tomorrow morning winter weather advisories go into effect. Light snow will continue through the early morning. By 10 AM light snow will taper off to flurries as the low pulls further away from the area. Arctic air pouring into the area will keep temperatures in the low and mid 30's through the day. Wind chills should run in the 20's with a stiff north wind gusting over 20 miles per hour at times. Bundle up!

A very cold night is coming up tomorrow night with clearing skies and lows in many spots in the teens. A cold Canadian high will be moving into the southeast U.S. With the high near us on Wednesday it will be sunny and still cold with highs in the upper 30's. We expect one more very cold night Wednesday night with lows plunging into the low 20's. As the high slides offshore Thursday it will remain sunny but turn milder with highs in the low 50's. Friday will be even better with mostly sunny skies and highs back in the low 60's. Another cold front approaches the area over the weekend. Ahead of the front Saturday will be mostly cloudy with highs in the mid 60's. We could see a pretty good rain chance late Saturday into early Sunday. After some early showers, Sunday will be mostly cloudy and colder with highs in the low 50's.

Have a nice holiday,
