Weather Headlines:

- First Alert this morning for areas of patchy ice on area roads

- Carolina sunshine returns through Thursday

- Rain and thunderstorms return by Friday

There will be some areas of patchy black ice on roads and bridges. This will not be widespread, just here and there and in mostly Northern counties.

High pressure returns today and that bright yellow/orange looking disk shape will appear in the sky…it’s called the Sun! A few clouds could roll in and out tonight. If we can keep the clouds around long enough, temperatures will hold in the Lower 30s overnight.

Temperatures will be slowly on the increase over the next few days as we’ll see the 60s by Friday. Friday is when our next storm system moves in. This will bring periods of rain and even a few thunderstorms by late day and evening.

Rain will be around through early afternoon Saturday before skies being to clear.

Forecast:

Today: Mostly sunny. Highs Lower 50s

Tonight: Partly cloudy. Lows Lower 30s

Wednesday: Sunny. Highs Middle 50s
