Sun helps melt snow, patchy black ice possible tonight

Dry start to the week with rain forecast late Tuesday.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Tonight: Clear & Cold. Low 24.

Sunday: Mostly Sunny. Cold. High 45.

Monday: Mostly Sunny. High 46.

Tuesday: Mostly Cloudy. Cold PM Rain. High 45.


The sunshine helped to melt a lot of the snow and ice lingering across the Triad, after a weekend featuring rain and snow. The shady spots under trees and in covered locations did not get to fully melt today, so these spots are at high risk for re-freeze tonight as temperatures fall back into the 20s. Although black ice is a top concern for all walkers and drivers, it will also be just a bone-chilling night. The wind chill will be nearly 5 to 10 degrees below the temperatures. Sunday will feature a few more clouds, but it will be a dry day. A back door cold front will drop south on Monday and lead to additional clouds, but won't bring us any rain; however, Tuesday's forecast is quite tricky. Some weather models are showing an area of low pressure moving up the south and across central North Carolina. If this happens, we could see showers across our area late in the day. As we near the start of the week, we will have a better handle on what this system will produce. Wednesday is not expected to be an active day, but it will be windy. The entire 7-day forecast features at or below-average temperatures and towards the midweek high temperatures fall nearly 10 degrees below average. 

The normal high is 49, and the normal low is 30.
