Black Ice threat Sunday morning, then warmer by the afternoon


The snow has moved out, leaving in general 2-4″ across Central North Carolina. Roads were still slick this morning, but improved as the afternoon went on. Temperatures were above freezing, and pair that with plenty of sunshine some of that snow started to melt. That means however black ice and refreezing will be an issue late tonight and early tomorrow as temperatures quickly drop back into the teens. Bundle up and drive safe if you have to be out!

By Sunday afternoon the sunshine returns in full-force with temperatures climbing into the middle 40s. This means more snow melting will happen, but that also means black ice and refreezing is an issue again Sunday night and early Monday morning.

Monday will feature much of the same: mostly sunny skies and high temperatures in the middle 40s. Tuesday will be the warmest day of the week with highs near 50, but scattered areas of rain thanks to an approaching cold front, which will bring back cool air for the rest of the week.


OVERNIGHT will be mostly clear and cold. The overnight low will be 17. Winds will be nearly calm.        

SUNDAY will be mostly sunny. The high will be 45. Winds will be southwest 5 to 10 mph. 

MONDAY will be mostly sunny. The high will be 46. Winds will be light out of the north, then south.
