Star’s First Alert Forecast: Tracking wet weather for the weekend

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) – A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for Central and Western North Carolina for Sunday. None of Eastern NC is in the watch area.

Friday will see northwest winds blow at 15 to 20 mph and temperatures begin to ease down. Highs will reach the mid 50s under mostly sunny skies, but we’ll feel chillier as winds pick up. Cooler air settles in overnight Friday night with lows in the upper 20s.

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 any wintry precipitation in ENC will likely occur from 4am to 10am Sunday. The rest of the system will be rain for us. Snow chances look very limited to the onset of precipitation for far inland areas. This will not be a snowstorm for Eastern NC.

We will also get breezy Sunday, especially along the coast with gusts over 25 mph. Most areas will likely see an inch or more of rainfall before the rain exits Sunday night. Stay in touch with the WITN weather forecasts on this website, the WITN Weather App, and on WITN.
