Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast

A cold rain will continue this evening and overnight. Lows will cool to the upper 30s and low 40s.

Scattered showers will be possible early Tuesday with drier weather by Tuesday afternoon. Expect highs in the mid and upper 50s. This will be our mildest day of the week. Temperatures will fall into the upper 30s and low 40s overnight.

Wednesday will be mainly dry and cooler with highs near 50. An area of low pressure will move northeast up the coast of the Carolinas late. Showers will be possible by Wednesday night. Temperatures will fall into the 30s overnight with many communities either near or just above the freezing mark. The system will be moving rather quickly with precipitation chances continuing overnight Wednesday into Thursday morning. The area of low pressure will exit the coast quickly Thursday morning with another disturbance moving through. This will continue to give the chance for a rain/snow mix. Right now, we could see a dusting to maybe an inch of snow. We will continue to monitor possible amounts. Dry air will rush in behind these two systems and high pressure will build in. We should see much drier weather after noontime. We're not only dealing with the chance for some wintry weather, but also strong winds. Winds will be out of the north 15-25 mph, with gusts 35-40 mph on Thursday. This will make our highs temperatures in the upper 30s feel closer to the 20s. Remember though, wind chill will not affect if we see snow or not. Once we dry out Thursday afternoon, the wind will continue to whip. Frigid overnight with lows in the mid and upper 20s with wind chills in the teens.

A frigid, but dry end to the work week. It will still be windy with a brisk north/northwest wind. Expect plenty of deceiving sunshine. Highs will be near 40 with wind chills in the 20s. Brr! Even colder overnight as temperatures fall into the mid and upper 20s.

Saturday is looking dry with highs in the low 40s under mostly sunny skies. A bit milder on Sunday with highs in the low 50s with a chance of showers.
