Right now we have a couple of systems that are definitely worth talking about and watching, but certainly not worrying about just yet. The first system arrives Thursday night, and the second one gets here Sunday morning.
System #1 will bring cold air and moisture from the northwest. This will mean possibly significant snow for western North Carolina and MAYBE a flake or sleet pellet mixed with rain in the Upstate. The air aloft will be cold enough by around 5AM Friday morning, but surface temps will be well above freezing. Therefore, don't be surprised to see SOMETHING frozen fall, but no issues expected. It's a quick morning system, so all the moisture is out by 8AM or so.
System #2 is a more classic set up for the Upstate to get winter weather as moisture moves in from the southwest, however temps won't be cold enough for snow/sleet for long. From 5-8AM Sunday we could see some flurries or light sleet before rain takes over. The mountains would see a longer period of winter weather, but would see all rain by noon.
NEITHER SYSTEM look to bring road problems for the Upstate. Mountains could see issues both Friday and Sunday mornings. We'll keep you posted a the forecast evolves toward the end of the week!
