It's been a chilly stretch of weather for eastern Carolina of late. And more is to come. A cold front will sweep across the region early Sunday generating a few showers...and a few snowflakes can't be ruled out either. In the afternoon the winds will really kick up with gusts over 30 mph possible...especially along the beaches. In the wake of the front expect a chunk of some cold air for Sunday night into Wednesday. High temperatures will struggle into the mid 40s Monday and Tuesday...with low temperatures very cold in the 22-27 degree range Monday morning through Wednesday morning. Thereafter... cold high pressure will slide offshore as an area of low pressure slides to our west. The combination of these features will start to pull some mild air from the south. In fact we're looking at the mercury soaring into the 60s Thursday and Friday...with a chance of some showers Friday into Saturday.
After a minor threat of flurries early Sunday...I'm wondering if it's safe to say "we're out of the woods" as far as more snow coming to eastern Carolina. In March one can't be too sure...especially with the pattern we've seen of late with cold air intrusions. But as the days get longer...and eventually warmer..the odds of more snow lessens. Let's hope.
