The storm system that is expected to bring snow to the mountains and cold rain to the coastal plain will be affecting the Carolinas within a few hours. My final snow, sleet, and freezing rain forecast has been issued.
Our winter storm is moving onshore along the coast of California and will begin moving eastward over the next few days. I am still expecting a strong storm with heavy snow, sleet, freezing rain, and rain for the Carolinas.
Models are slowly coming into agreement regarding an area of low pressure that is expected to bring a mix bag of snow, sleet, freezing rain, and cold rain to the Carolinas this weekend and early next week.
An upper level disturbance is expected to move across the southeast United States this weekend, which will help an area of low pressure to develop with along the Gulf of Mexico.
Wintry weather will be possible this weekend from the mountains into the piedmont of North and South Carolina.
Depending on where you live in North Carolina, you may experience wintry weather, flooding rains, and/or severe weather on Thursday as a dynamic system moves into the area.
An active week is in store with two systems bringing the opportunity for heavy rains and flooding, and there may even be a chance for wintry weather for parts of the Carolinas Clouds are increasing across the Carolinas as an upper level trough continues to dive into the center of the country, bringing moisture northward from the Gulf of Mexico and allowing an area of low pressure to organize. The system will rapidly strengthen and will bring periods of very heavy rains to the Carolinas. Flash flooding may become an issue, especially overnight Monday into Tuesday. 1-3 inches of rain
My official winter weather forecast has been issued for North Carolina and the United States. Long range forecasting is very difficult and is subject to many factors; therefore, a seasonal forecast provide a “best guess” of what to expect. Many hours and days of studying different computer models, analog years, current conditions, and oscillations have went into developing this forecast. Below you will find the summary of the forecast, a list of analog years used in the forecast, and the rationale behind this forecast. I believe this forecast is the most likely outcome this season; however, please understand it is
The time has changed; however, its the same song and dance across the Carolinas. Clouds are expected to increase this afternoon and evening, with showers developing Sunday evening and lasting into Tuesday.
