Tired of the cold? A brief reprieve from winter is heading our way. An expansive system slides into the Carolinas from the west by Sunday afternoon, bringing in some more much-needed rain for the second half of the weekend. A few isolated showers are possible Sunday morning as we wake up to the 20s, 30s, and lower 40s, but the main event won’t arrive until the latter part of the day. Scattered rain should arrive in the Piedmont by dinnertime on Sunday. While a few pockets of heavy rain may develop, most communities will see just over a half-inch by the time we dry out overnight.
On the backside of the rain comes much colder air. A few flurries are possible in the mountains early Monday morning, but totals will be negligible. Expect another frosty morning to kick off the second full week of 2022, as lows could bottom out in the teens in the High Country. Frigid air will grip the Carolinas through the first half of the week before some warmer air arrives by next weekend.
