Winter Weather Advisory in effect for parts of the metro region until Noon for some light sleet or freezing drizzle…with trace amounts possible during the mid am rush.

Friday:
Chance Lt AM Mix & PM Lt Rain, Mainly South, Otherwise Mostly Cloudy, Breezy & Cold
Highs: Upper 30s
Wind: NE 10-15 mph
Saturday:
Partly Cloudy, Pleasant & Warmer
Highs: Mid to Upper 50s
Wind: W 10 mph
Sunday:
AM Sprinkle, Partly Sunny, Not As Mild
Highs: Near 50°
Precipitation: 30% Chance Early

Clouds remain entrenched across the region with cooler temperatures once again as this area of low pressure passes along the Southeast Atlantic Coastline. The system will head out to sea later today, but in the process some light moisture in the form of some light sleet and or some freezing drizzle may intrude into our area this morning. Therefore, out an abundance of caution, the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the metro region until Noon. It is most likely that most moisture will remain south of the metro area…but be alert early for the potential for trace amounts of ice and a few slick spots.

ZZZZZ

After Noon, it will warm enough that if anything falls, it will be rain. A nice pattern emerges for Saturday with plenty of sunshine and milder highs in the mid and upper 50s. Remember before you head to bed Saturday to set you clocks ahead one hour as we return to Eastern Daylight Time. Also, it is a good time to replace the batteries in the smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in your home. A tad cooler with a morning sprinkle and temps in the 60s are likely to start the new week. Have a great weekend – be safe!
