Another Cold Start

No doubt, many heaters across central North Caroline have gotten their first work out of the season the past couple of mornings. Many locations got at least close to the freezing mark this morning. A few early morning clouds prevented some spots from getting all the way to freezing. Here's a look at lows from around the region this Wednesday:
  • Southern Pines: 28
  • Lumberton: 30
  • Chapel Hill: 31
  • Asheboro: 32
  • Burlington: 32
  • Lexington: 32
  • Smithfield: 32
  • Greensboro: 33
  • Raleigh-Durham: 33
  • Mount Airy: 34
  • Goldsboro: 34
  • Fayetteville: 35
  • Louisburg: 36
  • Oxford-Henderson: 36
  • Winston-Salem: 36

While we were certainly cold this morning, it wasn't record cold. The records for this date are 27 for Raleigh and 28 for Greensboro, both set in 1962.

One other cold weather fact to note -- the earliest snowfall for Raleigh occurred on yesterday's date in 1887, 1903, and 1910. A trace of snow was reported each of those years.

Snow is not in our forecast anytime soon. However, Friday will likely be a cool and rainy day for the region. Stay tuned to Weather on the Ones for the latest!
