WBOY STORMTRACKER 12 WEATHER SYNOPSES:
Skies have been mainly cloudy around the region today but temperatures were right around average. Highs reached into the low 50s in the lowlands and hung around 40 degrees in the mountains. Some patchy light drizzle managed to break through the dry air in place this afternoon and the chance for showers will remain overnight. Showers will be light and isolated in nature. Also, some snowflakes will try to mix in with any showers along higher mountain peaks tonight. Lows will dip into the 30s.
Skies will remain cloudy Friday and some precipitation will try to hang around. Temperatures will be cooler by a few degrees with highs struggling to reach 40 degrees. Light, isolated rain and snow showers will be possible across the lowlands with mainly rain seen during the afternoon. Meanwhile, northeastern areas and into the mountain counties can expect snow showers. Even though most snowfall may not stick to the ground, the mountain counties can expect 1-3" of snow. Higher peaks and areas around Snowshoe could see closer to 4-6".
