As the rain and snow move out this evening, the skies clear quickly overnight leading to good radiational cooling, especially in the mountains. This leads to the concern for black ice. As temperatures dip below freezing, any surfaces still wet on Sunday night would freeze. The biggest concern is in the mountains where the precipitation doesn’t move out until after sunset. Monday morning’s commute could be icy in many spots across North Carolina so plan for extra time.

Temperatures rebound quickly on Monday. Plentiful sunshine through the day helps to boost temperatures into the low to mid 60s in the Upstate and Northeast Georgia. The lower elevations of the mountains see highs in the mid to upper 50s but anywhere that has snow on the ground is cooler with highs in the 40s.

Tuesday night, temperatures drop below freezing again the mountains and into the mid 30s in the Upstate. Once again, temperatures climb nicely to spring-like highs in the upper 50s to mid 60s. There’s a chance for a few isolated showers on Wednesday but more than anything, the clouds increase. However, we keep the highs in the 60s.
