Rain showers are prevalent across the reigon this morning as a cold front continues to approach from the west. The frontal boundary will move through in the evening and showers will taper off overnight, but not before a changeover to snow occurs as colder air moves in behind the front.  No accumulations are expected though.

High pressure builds into the region for tomorrow. Clearing skies in the morning will lead to an abundance of sunshine by the afternoon. It’s going to be a really nice end to the work week. Temperatures will be mild-ish, with highs generally in the upper 30’s to mid 40’s.

The weekend is going to be interesting. A surface low moving from the Gulf up through the Carolinas combined with upper level disturbances will lead to a mixed bag of precip beginning Saturday night and lasting into Sunday. Expect rain showers to begin Saturday evening before changing over to snow at night. As the low moves off the Carolina coast on Sunday morning, precip continues and should remain all snow. Lower elevations could see rain/sleet early on though, before a change back to snow occurs as colder air works its way into the region. 

Snow showers should taper off by the afternoon and things will begin to clear out.  Monday is looking very nice as bluebird skies return and temperatures moderate nicely.
