Raleigh, N.C. — A stark temperature change chilled the Triangle Sunday morning, and a chance for a light mid-week snow remains, according to WRAL meteorologist Mike Moss.
An airmass change combined with clear skies and low humidity have allowed temperatures to become much colder on Sunday morning than they were yesterday.
“Temperatures this morning are as much as 32 degrees lower than the same time on Saturday, with most of us starting in the low to mid 20s and heading for mid 30s or so for highs in the afternoon,” said Moss. “High pressure northwest of us will leave us with mostly sunny to sunny skies today but will also produce a north to northeast breeze that keeps us cold.”
Will the Triangle see snow?
According to Moss, the normal high for the day is 51 degrees — but Sunday’s high will be almost 20 degrees lower than that. Temperatures will become milder again on Tuesday morning before the chance for snow enters the area.
“Tuesday night into Wednesday, colder air pours in, and a disturbance pulling through will give us a chance at some wintry weather,” said Moss. “A lot of details will need to be worked out on that, but it’s something to watch closely over the next couple of days.
