Triad --  After last Thursday's snow, temperatures have climbed each day.  Many of us were in the low 60s this afternoon.  There is very little snow left across the Piedmont now. 

On Monday , temperatures will scale back a little.  Instead of the low 60s, we will hold in the low 50s.  That's still above average.  The big difference will be the wind.  It will be out of the southwest tomorrow, 10-15 mph.  Gusts could be up to 25 mph.  That will make it feel a tad cooler than it actually is.

The big change comes on Tuesday.  An Arctic cold front will move though on Monday night and usher in some of the coldest air of the season. Tuesday morning will start out in the mid 20s.   On top of that, it will be windy. Wind chills will start out in the teens. Highs will struggle in the mid to upper 30s through mid week.  Wednesday morning lows will be in the teens- without a wind chill. 

There will be slight moderation by Friday.  There is a 40% chance of rain and a small possibility of a winter mix as the precipitation wraps up Friday night.  We will watch that situation as the week progresses.  Otherwise Saturday will be another very cold day.
