Highs today near seasonal hitting the lower 40s but winds will still be gusting at 15-20 miles per hour. For Sunday we are dry over most of the state with mixed clouds and sun, but strong north winds mean we can't rule out lake effect snows and flurries over the northern third of the state.

Sunshine should be more plentiful Sunday but that is of little outcome as even colder air surges into the area.

Wednesday looking colder with lows in the upper 30s and few flurries during the afternoon with no accumulation.

Temperatures will fall behind the cold front, so don't forget that jacket for later in the day.

Friday is expected to see temperatures in the high-30s, with cloudy skies.

But, as noted above, the more important aspect of this pattern change isn't whether or not we get snow Friday, but the long-lasting cold weather - departing from the last six Decembers, which have ranged from a little mild to blazing warm - that may lead to additional chances of snow and/or ice down the road. Highs are in the upper 30s to near 40 degrees Saturday, after a cold morning in the 20s.

Rain and snow showers are likely Monday.

You have likely heard folks discussing the prospects of snow in the Carolinas. Lows in the 20s. In addition, there is a wind chill factor. The first such opportunity comes overnight Friday into Saturday as a low pressure system develops along a front out over the ocean. Right now will keep it out of the southwest at 5 miles per hour but if they become calm and with clear skies, temperatures may drop to as cold as the low-mid teens. This could spread some light rain and snow along its track, although it's still unclear as to the track this feature will take, and if any coastal redevelopment can occur to enhance the rain and snow just a bit. Regardless, the cold pattern keeps chugging right along through next week.
