GREENSBORO, NC -- After a beautiful MLK Day, it is hard to believe Arctic Air is closing in on the Piedmont. A strong cold front will move through Tuesday, and brings with it the chance of snow. Here's how it happens.
Tuesday will start with some sunshine, and then clouds will begin to thicken up. By midday, some scattered rain showers will move in along with cold air. This cold air will change rain over to snow by late afternoon, leaving scattered snow showers for the evening commute. The snow will stop by 10-11 pm, with temperatures plummeting after that.
In the metro Triad, a dusting to 0.5" of accumulation is possible from this system. Farther north and east, toward the VA border, anywhere from 0.5" to 2" is possible. As always, the western slopes of the mountains will see higher totals than that.
Morning low temperatures Wednesday will be near 15, with wind chills in the single digits. This trend will continue all the way through Friday.
