7:47 am
let's go ahead and talk about it. it's going to be on monday and tuesday. really, the two active days we're going to be watching here and monday, the potential is the on set of this, could be a wintry start, and the timing is going to be very early. this is a long ways off and showing you where the models are at this point in time, showing you a little bit of snow early, and a mix to the south, quickly transition over to more of a sleet, maybe freezing rain mix. so still wintry in nature for pretty much the entire viewing area for the morning commute as we go into monday. then as we go by mid-day, notice how it's starting to turn to more rain and at that point, it should be all rain after that on tuesday. tuesday could be a day where we get moderate at times, heavy rain. those are the two active days coming up. all the models show a little bit of snow at rdu, talking generally under a half inch. the majority of any snow accumulating, if it happens, according to the european model, will be off to the north and
7:48 am
this system tapping into our warmer air south and east. temperatures less of a breeze tomorrow. ambient temperatures about the same but will feel colder today. wintry mix early monday and turning into rain later in the day and lasting through tuesday, at least midday. warming up, temperatures above average. tuesday is going to be one little shot of milder air. we'll cool down just a little bit as we go into thursday, and right behind that, we warm up again. so no pro longed cold spells. live look in the hills, the breeze, near 20 miles an hour, making it feel colder. a couple of 30s out there but you factor in the breeze, it feels like teens and 20s and the wind chill will probably stay about the same or close to it as we go through the afternoon. state is in action today. before and after, it's about the same. no matter what you do outdoors,
7:49 am
the breeze is noticeable. fair skies, clear, we'll lose the pressure gradient tomorrow, less of a breeze. cold start in the teens. here comes that wintry start on monday recollects transition over into more rain. the warm air will surge behind this front as we go into tuesday where highs will get back to the mid-50s with more rain expected. heading up to the mountains, i think it's just too cold today but if you're hard core, you can do it. seven in beach mountain, sugar mountain, 9, but you factor the wind in, it's going to feel like 10-20 below up in the mountains. highs today will be in the 30s. again, a cold breezy day today, we'll lose a bit of a breeze but ambient temperatures down to the low to mid-teens. a cold one tomorrow morning. not a bad afternoon but 32 for your valentine's day. hopefully, you have indoor plans and on monday, a mix to start, turning to rain and all rain tuesday. caitlin: yikes. i am not hard core, for the record.
