Winter Weather Forecast For Friday

Written by on February 11, 2016 in Winter Weather

Attention turns to the east once again as another winter storm will affect portions of ENC.

Temperatures will remain cold this evening as clear skies and calm winds allow good radiational cooling. After midnight, clouds will begin to spread over the area ahead of the next system.

Surface low moving low moving over the Gulf States will work it’s way offshore over South Carolina then move northeastward just off the coast. Precipitation will begin over the southern portions of ENC early Friday morning and spread northward as the morning moves on. Most areas will see some light snow at onset of precipitation. Forecast soundings indicate a warm nose start spreading over the southern sections early causing a transition from snow to sleet/freezing rain then all rain before precipitation moves northeastward away from the area.

Locations on the northern half of ENC will see precipitation start as light snow at precipitation onset Friday morning and will continue to see snow longer than the southern sections. The warm nose will continue to work its way northward through the morning with snow transitioning to sleet/freezing rain during the afternoon before moving northeast and away from the area Friday night.

My current thinking on snow accumulations are noted in the image below. The actual totals could be lower than forecast if sleet/freezing rain occurs sooner than expected.

Potential winter weather Friday.

The National Weather Service has issued Winter Weather Advisories and Winter Storm Warnings for most of ENC.

As always, this forecast may not agree with any official NWS forecast or other local media. Alway consult NWS for alerts/warnings that could affect your area.
