Daily Forecast

Happy Sunday! Most of the rain is gone, but temperatures are on the decline. Black ice is a concern in the mountains due to strong cold winds from the northwest that will drop temperatures quickly and potentially freeze water that is already on the ground.

A winter weather advisory continues until 7 a.m. Monday for Avery county. A High Wind Warning for Avery, Ashe, Watauga, and the Burke & Caldwell mountains continues until 7 a.m. Monday. Wind gusts over 50 mph are expected. A wind advisory for Burke, Caldwell, Cleveland, Lincoln, Catawba, Alexander, Iredell, Rowan, Lancaster, & Chesterfield counties continues until 7 p.m. Wind speeds between 20-30 mph expected with gusts over 40 mph possible.

So what does this all mean? You need to dust the winter coat off! It's going to be cold and windy. Single digit wind chills are possible in the mountains today and could even drop below zero by Monday morning. Wind chills in the teens and 20s are expected across the piedmont.  

Despite plenty of sunshine on Monday our high temps will only be able to climb into the upper 30s. Temperatures will eventually rebound ahead of the next rain maker that is expected to push through the area on Wednesday and Thursday.

Today: Clearing skies, but are high temperature happened shortly after midnight. Afternoon temperatures in the low 40s with wind gusts near 30 mph.

Monday: Very cold start to the day with lows near 20. Lots of sunshine. High: 39.
