A Brief Break Between Systems NC 2-20-13

High pressure currently stretches from eastern Canada all the way down into Florida.  Other than some late afternooon clouds, it’s going to be mostly sunny today but rather breezy out there as a northwest wind will persist.  That wind will also keep temperatures on the chilly side.

Tomorrow will be warmer but cloud cover will be on the increase as our next system approaches the region.  This one looks to bring another mixed bag of precip to the region.

Model soundings show precip in the form of freezing rain/sleet beginning after midnight on Thursday.  A warm layer aloft will actually cause a changeover to rain to first occur at higher elevations before everyone sees this changeover in the afternoon.  Rain showers continue overnight Friday and into Saturday morning.

Wraparound snow showers on the back side of the system are possible Saturday night, but accumulations with be light at best and limited to the usual favored locations.

Things briefly calm down on Sunday before more unsettled weather returns to the forecast for Monday.
