The worst of our winter storm is over, but light snow showers and flurries will be possible through early afternoon, then cloudy conditions for the rest of the afternoon.  With limited sunshine and a cool northeast wind, we'll struggle to get much above freezing today, so it will be a slow process of melting away the snow.  Here's the latest snow map as of 8:45 this morning.

Low pressure will stay off the North Carolina Coast and with easterly winds we will not see much sun Tuesday either. Temperatures will be modestly warmer than today.  A weak cold front will bring a chance of showers on Wednesday, but we will warm up as soon as spring arrives.  Thursday will be warmer with more sunshine in the mid to upper 50s and even better on Friday with many spots topping 60 degrees.
