A ridge of high pressure is going to build over us tonight keeping the sky free of clouds and allowing temperatures to once again plummet to well below zero. The high will stick around Wednesday supplying us with another sunny and cold day with temperatures topping out in the low to mid 20s. Look for increasing cloudiness Wednesday night as the high gives way to an approaching storm that should be near Cape Hatteras by Thursday morning. From here the models disagree on the track of the storm with some suggesting a more westward track keeping the storm closer to the coast. This would result in snow changing to sleet or rain in coastal counties Thursday afternoon. Other models keep the low farther east which is a colder solution resulting in about 8-12 inches of snow. Hopefully these models will come into better agreement over the next 24 hours. The storm will move off to the east on Friday and if the sun manages to break through the clouds we should see temperatures climb into the upper 30s. That would be rather sweet in light of all the cold weather we've had. Another weak storm could bring some light snowfall on Saturday with more arctic air to follow for Sunday.
