Cold But Will It Snow?

Cold air is entrenched across the area but moisture is lacking so far.

Arctic air is rapidly moving into eastern North Carolina Thursday evening.  Temperatures will plummet into the teens by early Friday morning and could fall a bit lower early Saturday.  Temperatures will be lucky to get above freezing the next two days.  The air continues to be quite dry so there is no chance for snow.  Later in the weekend there is a possibility that some moisture could return to the area, especially by Sunday evening.  It will be slightly warmer on Sunday and there is a chance anything that falls could be liquid and not frozen.  Cold air will linger into the middle of next week so if any moisture can arrive before Wednesday there will be a chance of some snow flakes.  There is always a chance of a snow later in the season even if we miss one in this cold spell.  I've seen some hefty snowfalls in February and March so keep the faith if you're a snow lover.

    7 PM and I measured 5 inches. It is so beautiful, but the roads are very slippery.
