Triad -- So far, this spring hasn't felt very spring-like. Since spring officially began on Wednesday, the warmest it has been is 55. The average high is 63.
Sunday promises to feel even less like spring should.
A low pressure system is on it's way up from the Gulf Coast. As the rain is thrown up our way, chilly air will set in across the Piedmont for Sunday and Sunday night.
Lows tonight will fall to the mid 30s. Highs tomorrow will only increase to the upper 30s. A chilly rain is likely to fall most of the day. However, we should manage to stay just enough above freezing for winter weather not to be a problem.
Sunday night will be a little trickier. As temps fall Sunday night, it should go back to the mid 30s. If some spots get a little cooler, it could be closer to freezing and a winter mix could set up.
There are several things working in our favor to prevent a messy Monday morning. First of all, temperatures will be marginal, so we may not even have any winter precipitation in the first place. Even if we do have some, it has been chilly, but above freezing during the day.
Plus, the sun angle is higher and better able to warm up the ground. That means it should be too warm for many problems. At worst, there could be some patchy black ice.
We will continue to monitor the situation.
The week ahead will remain cool. Highs will stay in the 40s through Wednesday.
We will be back to the 50s for Thursday through Easter weekend.
