Cold, blustery day with rain and temps in the 40s

Those clouds will soon move out and we may see the sunshine before sunset. Even colder air will arrive Friday, and it could be cold enough for the rain to switch over to a wintry mix across the midstate.

It is important to note that not everyone in the Winter Weather Advisory will see snow.

A stalled front is producing a conveyor belt of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico and spreading it into Georgia today and tomorrow. Amounts by sunrise should remain less than one quarter of an inch, but additional snowfall is expected after sunrise.

Overrunning moisture to the north of a lingering front to the south will align with colder air aloft to generate snow potential in parts of the western Carolinas, but the areal extent, coverage, and intensity will be modulated largely by topography.

Temperatures will start in the low 20s in the Lubbock area on Thursday but some locations to the north will drop into the teens. Temperatures look to only be in the upper 30s Friday for highs, and with the precipitation shield sliding back to the north some, model data output shows snow mixing in with the rain for some of these areas.

Snow accumulation will be very minor and only on grassy and elevated surfaces northwest of the Triangle. "I'm not expect any accumulation at this time". Areas of the central and western parts of North and SC may see a mix of rain and snow or wet snow and sleet at times through the day Friday. This could cause issues with black ice if there is standing moisture on the roads.

The rain/snow/sleet line will slowly shift toward the southeast later Friday and Friday night, before ending during the pre-dawn hours of Saturday.

ACCUMULATION: Most likely along the NC/SC border and in adjacent areas of northeast Georgia. We will be doing Facebook Live updates on our 13WMAZ Facebook page this evening, so tune in!
