Possible snow tuesday night wednesday
Possible Snow Tuesday Night/ Wednesday morning, but will track far enough offshore and will be weak enough to bring mostly rain ending as a short period of rain/snow mix Tuesday morning. Temperatures Tuesday morning should remain above freezing and no accumulation of snow is expected.

  • A very strong upper level trough of low pressure (disturbance marked by the red line) will track across the state Monday night and early Tuesday morning.

  • This system will provide enough instability to create scattered snow showers if enough moisture is available.


Monday night tuesday morning
Monday Night / Tuesday Morning morning, but will track far enough offshore and will be weak enough to bring mostly rain ending as a short period of rain/snow mix Tuesday morning. Temperatures Tuesday morning should remain above freezing and no accumulation of snow is expected.

  • Models differ on the actual track of the disturbance and the amount of snow which may fall Monday night / Tuesday morning.

  • The model forecast shown here does forecast enough moisture available to result in scattered snow showers.

  • The patches of light green over NC represent forecast precipitation which would be snow.


Issues and concerns
Issues and Concerns morning, but will track far enough offshore and will be weak enough to bring mostly rain ending as a short period of rain/snow mix Tuesday morning. Temperatures Tuesday morning should remain above freezing and no accumulation of snow is expected.

  • No accumulation is expected with any snow which falls Tuesday morning.

  • Temperatures will be much colder Tuesday night / Wednesday morning in the low to mid 20s. If scattered snow showers do develop accumulations across central NC will be possible by daybreak Wednesday.

  • Current trends suggest any snow showers which develop will occur shortly after sunset in the Triad and spread east across the rest of central NC overnight.

  • Any snow which does fall will be mainly a dry type of snow resulting in a higher liquid to snow ratio. A higher snow ratio would allow for more snow depth which could reach a few inches of snow in some locations if enough moisture is available.


Keep up with the forecast
Keep up with the Forecast morning, but will track far enough offshore and will be weak enough to bring mostly rain ending as a short period of rain/snow mix Tuesday morning. Temperatures Tuesday morning should remain above freezing and no accumulation of snow is expected.

  • There is still uncertainty regarding exactly how the two storm systems on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings will shape up.

  • Giving the type of storm systems freezing rain should NOT be an issue and the only concerns facing NC are rain Tuesday and possible snow Monday night into early Tuesday.

  • Please check local NWS forecasts and discussions Through Tuesday in order to stay informed.
