Rain/Snow Mix on Sunday Then Spring Returns

Tornado Awareness Week begins

Have a great day! Clouds will build up early in the afternoon and stick around for the rest of the day.

Temperatures start cold and considerably below average. Plenty of moisture will accompany this system, and with the cold air, will lead to the potential for widespread accumulating snowfall across the area.

MONDAY: Mostly sunny. High: mid-upper 40s. Showers and scattered thunderstorms are expected today and into the evening. 1"-2" inches of rainfall, with locally higher amounts is possible. It will still be breezy and chilly, with daytime temperatures reaching only into the mid-40s, Avery said. Best chance for any severe weather will be along and east of I-95 and closer to the coast you go. "Accumulation will be limited to less than 1".

We're not only going to deal with the rain/snow, but the wind as well. We can expect high winds, heavy rain, some hail and isolated tornadoes. It will be even windier on the Outer Banks. Wind speeds peaked at 124 mph, and one tornado stretched across 18 miles.

Temperatures will remain in the 60s for Sunday with spotty morning showers possible. Skies have stayed fairly cloudy all day as well, really not helping to warm things up much. A south wind at 10 to 15 miles per hour by daybreak will help temperatures warm back up by a few degrees, getting back into the 30s for sunrise. Highs will only be in the 50s once again. The next chance for rain rolls in on Saturday. Temperatures for today peaked last night in the lower 60's before continually dropping all the way into the 40's during the afternoon.
