Hazardous Weather Outlook 1/20/16

HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK FOR OUR AREA

There’s an arctic air mass in place right now across central and eastern North Carolina; a system this evening could produce a brief round of snow flurries for the evening commute.  Thursday will be more seasonal as high temperatures return to the mid-40s.  Then, on Friday and Saturday, the cold air returns as a more significant system – a system that could produce another round of wintry weather.  We will stay abreast of the weather this week as it evolves and you should too.
