A couple of Bermuda high pressure systems pushed unseasonably warm air our way on New Year’s Day and the last part of December, but they have now moved far out to sea.

In their place is a cold, Canadian system, soon to be followed by yet another one.

The change in leadership was announced by a brief round of snow showers throughout our area Monday.

After a morning low in the mid-20s, abundant sunshine Tuesday will not be able to move temperatures above the mid-40s. Overnight returns to below freezing conditions, between 28 and 30.

A brief warmup into the mid-50s over most of our area, possibly to 60 south and southeast of a line from Selma and Kenly to Black Creek and Fountain, is expected Wednesday.

By Friday, though, that second Canadian high pressure ridge arrives, sending temperatures back down.

Precipitation chances, in the form of rain, rise only slightly to 20% Wednesday and 40% Thursday night. The trend is to lessen the chances with both events.
