Flurries & Drizzle Move Out, Winter Chill Hangs Around

The sunshine has largely returned for the holiday weekend, but that didn’t stop some of us in the WCCB Charlotte viewing area from getting in on a few stray flurries Saturday morning and afternoon. This is all thanks to an impressive cutoff low-pressure system that will pass to our north over the next day or two. While this storm system won’t bring much in terms of precipitation to anywhere outside of the High Country, it will deliver stubborn Arctic cold to the Carolinas through the MLK holiday. After more variable clouds on Sunday, expect sunshine in the Piedmont and Foothills to last through at least midweek. Temperatures will make a steady recovery to near-normal values in the same timeframe. Our mountain communities, however, will see a steady diet of scattered snow showers through Monday afternoon, which could add another 1-3″ on top of what was seen on Thursday and Friday.

Tonight: Clear and cold. Low: 29°. Wind: SW 5-10.

Sunday: Variable clouds and sun. A bit breezy. High: 49°. Wind: SW 5-15.

Sunday Night: Clouds clear out. Chilly. Low: 32°. Wind: SW 5-10.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day: Sunny and windy. High: 49°. Wind: W 5-15. Gusts: 20-25.
