There was a basketball game today in Chapel Hill between North Carolina State and North Carolina, which was delayed because of snow in North Carolina. The weather must be better today, right?
At 351, Raleigh-Durham airport was reporting a temperature of 27 degrees with fair skies. The Carolinas have cleared of any precipitation, however the cold air over the ocean to the west is producing quite a bit of stratus off shore, while the snow waits for warmer temperatures before melting in North Carolina.
Surface high pressure is outpacing an upper level ridge, which means there is stability in North Carolina, but the warm air is lagging behind. Monday will be another cool day as a result, but the rapidly moving upper air pattern will mean temperatures will spike on Tuesday, aided as the upper ridge moves into place, trailed by a developing feature in the Great Lakes. Southerly flow off the Atlantic will both melt snow, but may also add some drizzle to the equation, thanks to all the moisture in the area.

Here is a look at the current satellite. It’s fun to see so much on satellite, from the clouds caused by the warm water to the snow on the surface.
