5:20 pm
areas. nothing around the triangle. 31 at raleigh durham international. humidity at 64%. winds are fairly light but they're going to crank up later on. 32 roxboro. 28 at south hill. 31 fayetteville. 32 southern pines. oh, so close to it. look at atlanta at 60. birmingham and jackson in the mid and upper 60's. our air is coming from the northwest not the southwest. we'll have to wait a while to get temperatures near that level. there's the wintry mix again. triangle didn't see much at all. it would stay mainly south and east. we saw a few snowflakes. areas along the i-95 corridor. some spots a quart tower isolated half inch amounts. along the coast some areas along the outer banks picked up two or three inches. mostly clear tonight. temperatures around to. vin ya border to low and mid 20's elsewhere. certainly on the cold side. if you'll be out and about tomorrow nice and bright. wind chills between 8 and 13
5:21 pm
teens and low 20's all day. so remember dress in layers. temperatures in the low 20's. even by noon not even close to freezing. arctic high pressure builds in. brisk and cold tomorrow. the winds gusting up to 25, 30 miles per hour despite the bright sun. the winds will diminish tomorrow night and drop into the low and mid teens. remember the record low is two below zero. but still it'll be plenty cold. sunday bright sun will give way to high level clouds. then this system just organizing across the midwest comes our way for monday. more on that in a bit. highs tomorrow. low and mid 30's. near 30 virginia border. upper 30's potentially to the south. generally low to mid 30's but the winds gusting up to 30 will make it feel much colder. here comes the system monday into tuesday. this is not the track you want for a major winter storm. you need that low to be off the coast and keep the cold air in place. not going to happen. almost a sure bet a lot that this is going to run inland. along or just west of the triangle. that's going to drag some really wample air in here during the
5:22 pm
watch what hams. very cold air in place monday morning. here's ure first alert predictor. this is going to change as we go through time. this is just an early look at what could be happening. a little snow briefly early monday morning. a mix to the south that continues for a while. maybe those that have to work on presidents' day a little bit of a few slick spots across the area. but look at the quick transition mid to late morning into the afternoon. the warmer air surges in. that rain/snow line, freezing line up into southern virginia. that may be a little fast. this is just sort of an early call but it does look like a quick change over to rain as we head through midday into the afternoon. that's when the heaviest precipitation will be around. right now it looks like light amounts but it doesn't take much to cause slick spots either. that could be a bit of an issue monday morning. first alert accu weather seven day. 14 tomorrow night. less wind sunday. high clouds. talked about monday. light wintry mix changing quickly to rain. the rain could be heavy monday night into tuesday. there could be an isolated
5:23 pm
triangle tuesday morning or monday night. that's how fast things are going to change. then we get a nice, quiet period wednesday, thursday, and friday. looking forward to that. temperatures near normal. and sunshine the middle and end of next week. >> just a small bump in the road. thank you. >> you bet. >> we have new information about a deadly police shooting in san francisco. >> hear what the autopsy report says about how the victim was killed. >> and the zika virus is raising brand new concerns.
