Sprinkles on & off today & Thursday, Rain still possible Saturday/Sunday


Looks like a couple of days of on and off sprinkles for our area. This morning we have a little weak cold front and a line of very light precipitation move through the area. There had been a brief period of flurries in Charlotte before a changeover to light rain, and it appears that it will just bring some rain sprinkles to the Triangle, Sandhills and areas down east of I-95 this morning and early afternoon.
This system clears out after the evening drive tonight, and we develop mostly clear skies overnight with lows in the lower 30s.
Tomorrow we watch as another storm moves eastward along the Gulf coast, it appears right now (and has been fairly consistent with the weather prediction models) that it will pass to our south late Thursday and early Friday, taking its measurable rain chances with it to our south. We may see some sprinkles, but that looks to be about it once again.

However, there is hope, as over the weekend we'll see a pretty good storm from the Great Lakes sweep a cold front over the east coast, and we could see some measurable rain with that later Saturday into Sunday.
Plans for Monday? You should be okay. We're expecting partly to mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid 50s.

Have a great day!
