Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast:

Skies will continue to be mostly cloudy overnight with lows in the low 40s.

Some patchy fog is possible Wednesday morning with skies becoming partly cloudy. Expect highs in the upper 40s. Showers will move in by the evening as an area of low pressure moves northeast up the coast of the Carolinas. Temperatures will fall into the 30s overnight with many communities either near or just above the freezing mark.

A changeover to a wintry mix of snow will be possible overnight into Thursday morning. Right now, most areas could see an inch or less of snow. Models continue to downgrade potential snow totals, so stay tuned!

The area of low pressure will exit the coast quickly Thursday morning with another disturbance moving through. 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 35-45 mph on Thursday. This will make our high 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 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 in the upper 30s with wind chills in the 20s. Brr! Even colder overnight as temperatures fall into the mid 20s.

Saturday is looking dry with highs in the upper 30s under partly cloudy skies.

Not as frigid on Sunday with highs in the upper 40s with a few morning snowflakes followed by rain showers.

A few morning showers to kick off the work week with highs in the low and mid 40s. Monday night will be very cold with lows in the upper 20s.

Mostly cloudy heading into Tuesday with highs in the mid 40s.
