Light Snow Showers Today and Tomorrow NC 11-6-12

The combination of an upper level disturbance and an area of low pressure to our south is creating light snow and rain showers across the region this morning.  Expect these to taper off by lunchtime but temperatures will remain chilly for election day.

The low pressure system to our south will begin a track up the east coast tomorrow.  It will combine with a second upper level piece of energy and turn into a Nor’easter.  The Northeast looks to suffer yet another blow from Mother Nature but as far as the High Country, we will only see minor snowfall accumulations at the highest elevations through tomorrow.  Precipitation of the unfrozen kind is forecasted for locations below 3,500 feet.  It will continue to be chilly tomorrow though and winds will be strong.

This event will not be anywhere near as significant as last week’s.  As mentioned, any accumulations are only expected at the highest elevations and even there only a couple of inches are expected by early Thursday.  It’s still pretty exciting to talk about two snow events this early in November!

High pressure begins to build back in on Thursday and will remain through the weekend.  Thursday will see continued brisk temperatures but Friday through Sunday we’ll get back to normal for this time of year and sunshine will dominate.  It’s going to be a really nice weekend.
