WHAT'S THE WEATHER SETUP:
Cold air is locked in right now over the Piedmont, and rain is on the way. That is a common setup for us to get freezing rain during the winter months.
Late Thursday night into early Friday morning, moisture will be moving northward from the Gulf of Mexico toward the Carolinas. This is relatively warm air coming our way. The problem is that temperatures at the ground will still be cold.
Warm air moving in over cold air is a common setup for a freezing rain event. In this case, we'll need to see how cold our temperatures end up getting Friday morning, and how early the moisture arrives. Those factors will determine whether or not we have any ice, and if so, how much.
- Brief period of freezing rain possible Friday AM
- Too early for any amounts, impacts or details.
- A changeover to all rain will happen midday Friday regardless
- Areas north and west of Greensboro have best chance to see any ice
