After a wintry start to the work week, sunshine will return to the forecast across the Piedmont Tuesday with additional rounds of snow likely into Wednesday in the mountains.
Winter Weather Advisories remain in effect for Ashe, Watuaga, and Avery counties through mid-morning in anticipation of what will likely be slick roads for Tuesday morning commuters due to any snowfall that happened to melt and then refreeze overnight. Furthermore, a few more light snow showers will be possible in the mountains through this morning before things dry up region wide by this afternoon. Expect a day of sunshine and chilly conditions for the Piedmont, with highs only expected to warm into the 40s to low/mid 50s.
An additional upper level disturbance tracking eastward tonight will bring another round of upslope snow showers in the High Country Tuesday night into Wednesday where an additional 1"-3" will be possible. A few flurries may even break containment and move along the I-40 corridor, with little to no accumulation expected. Otherwise, Wednesday will feature another day of sunshine for the lower elevations with even cooler temperatures, as highs will only manage to reach into the 40s Wednesday afternoon.
Thursday into Friday will feature a warming trend that will take temperatures back towards average before our next system moves through over the weekend.
