Happy Spring as of 12:57 pm today but don’t be fooled winter isn’t done with the Carolinas just yet. There are still many small details to be worked out that can have major impacts on the forecast but the chances of some kind of a winter storm are growing. Read more
Enjoy those partly sunny skies and the temperatures near 70° today because some of the wildest weather we have seen in a long time arrives tomorrow. Temperatures tomorrow will start in the 60s late morning to around noon but will fall below freezing by dinner time with possible wintry weather. Read more
While we all enjoy the nice warm-up this week it will likely be all coming to an abrupt end Friday. With a strong cold front moving into the Southeast with a chance for strong to severe storms.

Well the trends are becoming clear we are going to see some kind of a winter storm the question is what type? By type I mean either ice, snow, sleet or rain and in what combination of 2 or 3?

You can’t turn on any sports channel without the commentators going on and on about the outdoor Super Bowl in a cold weather city. It’s getting really annoying because guess what? It’s not moving and you can’t control the weather. So why keep harping on it? Then don’t get me started on people trying to forecast the Super Bowl weather 2 months out.

The prospects for a winter storm impacting the entire area are increasing for Friday. There are still large questions of the amounts of precipitation that will fall but a few things are becoming clearer today. Number one being this will likely be an all winter precipitation event and likely for a large part of our area. The air is plenty cold enough and dry enough to keep everything either snow/sleet or freezing rain. We aren’t looking at much of any rain at all right now.
