A Few Raindrops Monday; A Few Snowflakes Early Tuesday?
While a few snowflakes may be possible late Monday night into early Tuesday morning, roads will stay wet, not icy through the overnight into Tuesday. Temperatures in the mid 50s on Monday will keep ground temperatures warm throughout the day with a few light raindrops possible Monday afternoon into the evening hours. Monday night lows will stay above freezing, eliminating the chance of any icy roadways here in the East. The chance for a few flakes will generally stay along and north of highway 264 between 3am and 9am Tuesday. Any accumulations should stay just north of the North Carolina state line into Virginia.
The storm that will bring us our chance of flakes is expected to strengthen in to a powerhouse Nor'easter late Monday night into Tuesday off the coast of New England. Up to two feet of snow is possible from Monday night through Tuesday from New York City to Boston, causing major travel delays and flight cancellations. If you are traveling to that part of the country, significant delays and cancellations are likely.
There may be a few left over snow flakes falling early Tuesday morning, however high pressure will build over the area once the cold front clears our coast line. Mostly sunny skies and much cooler temperatures will stick with us Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday.
Monday: Mostly cloudy with a chance for a few raindrops. Highs near 55° with winds from the southwest to start the day, shifting to the northwest in the afternoon. Wind speeds expected to build tot 6 to 12 mph. Rain chance: 30%.
Monday Night: A few showers around with a chance of a rain/snow mix after midnight. Lows will stay in the mid 30s (above freezing) so any flakes that do make it to the ground will melt on impact. Winds from the northwest at 10 to 15 mph. Precipitation chance: 40%.
Tuesday: Mostly cloudy, breezy and cold with a 30% chance of a few early snowflakes over northern counties. No accumulations are expected and temps will stay above freezing with potentially wet, but not icy roads. Winds: NW 15 to 25+ mph. Highs will reach the low 40s, with wind chills in the low 30s.
Winds will shift to the northwest at 10 to 15 knots on Monday. Wave heights will be from 2-4 feet. Swells will run around 1 to 2 feet on the Albemarle and Pamlico Sounds.
