Jim’s First Alert Forecast: Still on target for a little wintry precipitation Sunday

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) – Friday will see northwest winds pick up and temperatures begin to ease down. Highs will be around 50 under mostly sunny skies, but we’ll feel chillier as winds pick up.

A storm system is still on target to move over Eastern NC from sunrise Sunday through Sunday night. We will see primarily rain from this system, however, it will probably begin as a brief icy mix Sunday morning for well inland areas. The window for wintry precipitation in ENC will likely occur from 4am to noon Sunday. The rest of the system will be rain for us.

We will also get breezy by Sunday afternoon along the coast with gusts over 20 mph. If the track is farther off the coast, then more of a snow scenario would happen, however, this is looking unlikely. Most areas will likely see 1″-2″ of rainfall before the rain exits late Sunday night. Stay in touch with the WITN weather forecasts on this website, the WITN Weather App, and on WITN.
