"After some sunshine early, that new system will bring clouds across Central North Carolina during the mid-day and afternoon hours," he said. "There will be a few hours of light rain in at least parts of the region later this afternoon and into this evening."

Spotty sleet, or wet snowflakes, can mix in with that rain, but we won't see any big accumulations across our viewing area.

Colder air will follow for the rest of this week.

"As a strong upper-level trough moves over us tomorrow, there will be periods of cloudiness and perhaps a passing rain or snow shower, again with no accumulation," Schwenneker said.

Wednesday will be partly sunny and cold.

Thursday will be bright, sunny, and still cold, with highs in the 30s and nighttime lows near 20.

From Friday into the weekend, our weather will remain generally dry, quiet and cold.
