This Cold Snap Has Staying Power

Cold sky in the woods.
The cold snap is expected to last the week.

An Arctic cold front passed through the region Monday, bringing below-freezing temperatures to the Triad and Triangle.

National Weather Service Forecaster Scott Sharp says temperatures have hovered in the teens so far this morning.

"Temperatures today will struggle here across a large part of Piedmont to reach the freezing mark," Sharp says. "In fact, it looks like a large part of the areas, particularly along and to the North of I-85, it's a possibility that they will not reach freezing today."

Another weather system is moving into the area now.

"This cold snap is gonna continue for a good part of the week. We're expecting a quick moving upper level system to come across the area Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday evening and that may produce a few patched of some very light patches of snow across the region."

More wintry precipitation is possible this weekend, too.
