It's a very cold start to the day with temps in the teens and wind chills in the single digits. The slush has iced up on roads overnight. Because of icy conditions there is a Winter Weather Advisory in effect through Noon today.

High pressure will expand eastward today leading to plenty of sunshine, but winds out of the northwest will keep conditions quite chilly in the afternoon.

Temperatures will rise above the freezing mark into the mid to upper 30s allowing for some snow melt; however, any wet and slushy areas will refreeze at night with lows dropping back into the teens and lower 20s again.

The high pressure will build over Florida and the Southeast, allowing temperatures to moderate on Friday and into the weekend with sunshine. This will lead to more rapid snow melt. However, once again, ice could form on any wet surface Friday night as readings drop back into the 20s.

A broad upper-level ridge will build over the eastern United States late this weekend. Temperatures will continue to climb and this ridge will continue to promote dry conditions through Sunday.

An upper-level trough moving in from the west will drag a cold front through the Carolinas Monday night or early Tuesday of next week, resulting in the chance for some rain.

The system moves quickly so drier weather moves back into central North Carolina Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night.

The air mass following that front will be mostly of Pacific origin, so we won't see any extremely cold weather for the start of next week. In fact, readings stay above normal for a while.

Have a great Thursday!
