it is 27 in roxboro and 26 in henderson and south hill and 28 in rocky mount. and we have a breeze, 7 miles an hour winds in raleigh and 12 miles an hour in durham and it will make the temperatures feel colder. if we factor in the breeze, the current feels-like temperatures are in the teens and the low 20s. so it feels like 15 degrees in henderson and the current watch is 14 in roxboro. so bundle up if you have to be outside today. it will be deceiving because the sun will be out all day. we have a breeze and cold temperatures. the breeze is going to make things feel worse. our high will be climbing to about 34 this afternoon, with that breeze it will feel like it is in the low 20s for most of the day. again the reason for the cold temperatures is this arctic high pressure that began to build in late last night and it will stay put for today and tomorrow, leading to the coldest weekend so far this season.

snow arriving north of the triangle. and the morning rush, we'll see a good chance of seeing snow just about everywhere in the region. as we go through th morning hours, we get the warm air to push in and that will transition the snow over to the sleet and snow and freezing mix. monday afternoon as we see the cold air mixing up, we have plain rain in the forecast through monday and into tuesday as well. so be prepared for a messy day on monday with warmer temperatures on tuesday so snow develops early monday morning and it will mix with sleet and freezing rain late in the morning. and that wintry mix changes over to all rain monday afternoon and monday evening. and accumulations, right now, it looks like up to an inch of snow. about a tenth of an inch of sleet and freezing rain and one to two inches of rain and that is the bigger issue and that is the heavy rain that we'll see monday night and through the day on tuesday. today, dry and sunny, 34 degrees in raleigh, 33 in
tonight single digits windchills likely and 14 the be the overnight low temperature but it will peek like it is in the single digits by early tomorrow morning. for valentine's day tomorrow, up to only 32 in the afternoon, 37 on monday. so we'll get that wintry mix to mix out in rain and the temperatures will crime that above freezing levels -- will climb that above freezing levels and we're dryer and warmer for the rest of the week. surfing 40-foot waves and
