Watching The Weekend Weather

Could something wintry be lurking for the weekend?

Good Wednesday, everyone. We have made it to the middle of the week and we are actually seeing some decent weather for a few hours today. That won’t last long as a storm system brings showers back in here later tonight and Thursday. While that is the focus of the near term forecast. I have my eye on the weekend and the potential for wintry weather.

The first system will send some clouds our way today as temps hit the upper 40s and low 50s. Showers will then break out tonight and carry us into Thursday. This is a fast mover, so we should see some a little late day clearing with temps in the 50s for highs. Winds should also be gusty.

A seasonal chill blows in for Friday with near normal temps and a good amount of sunshine.

That brings us to the weekend and the increasing potential for a southern storm to track into the Carolinas late Saturday into Sunday. The exact track and evolution of this system will be crucial in determining what we get around here. The setup and forecast track from the models is usually one that brings accumulating snow to the region. Take a look at the latest track from the various models…

Can this system become the first “Threat” of the season? The seasonal trend says no. The track suggests it is certainly something for us to watch and I will be doing just that and have updates as needed. Have a great Wednesday and take care.
