Today will feature the beginning of a temporary return to colder air behind the cold front that departed behind yesterday’s icy system. The NW winds behind the front will set up our classic upslope/downslope weather pattern. Along the coastal plain, downsloping winds will warm and dry the atmosphere to allow for partly to mostly sunny skies and highs a few degrees above freezing. In the mountains, upsloping will result in clouds, periods of light-moderate snow, and highs in the low-mid 20’s. Some of the higher terrain typically favored for upslope could see up to an inch or two of snow through the day tomorrow. NW winds will be gusty at times, and where ice remains on the trees, watch for continued power outage concerns due to the ice and wind.
