11:17 pm
now your news 13 skywatch weather. >> jason: sub freezing temperatures already in many mountain communities. that means black ice will become a bigger issue as it already has. leicester carpet sales news13 sky cam network drying out mostly. notice these edges, the sidewalks and some of the parking spots still have piles of snow. of course they melted earlier today. and then you're going to find some patchy black ice near and along those sidewalks. so watch out. clear skies. a calm wind. 64% humidity. the wind chill nonexistent. a little more of a wind chill down in the upstate. your air temperature is 37 degrees. here's the big picture. we got a cold front on the move. this is going to move east rather slowly initially and
11:18 pm
as some rain for the area. mostly rain. higher elevations you may squeeze out light snow showers from this. really i'm thinking the rain is going to be the bigger issue across the mountains the next 24 to 36 hours. once that front moves east, we will begin to dry out. that happens early on wednesday. we'll watch the system along the gulf. the models are having a little bit of an issue. whether or not this is going to stay closer to the coast line and kind of ride up the coast. if it does that, there would be more moisture in play for much of the carolinas. if it's cold enough, we would weather. really the idea is that the chances are so slim at this point that they're really not going to call for anything down the road. future cast. tonight. by morning, showers off to the west. by lunch hour, showers moving in
11:19 pm
by midnight tomorrow night, we have a decent shot of showers coming through. clearing out in to the afternoon wednesday and thursday. here are the rainfall totals a quarter inch in asheville. you may find a little more half inch. no snow in the forecast. this computer model indicating a very quiet scene the next 24 to 36 hours. 20s for lows tonight with 30s mixed in down south and east. highs tomorrow in the mid to upper 40s. not a bad day above average. seven days down the road our temperatures will be in the 40s again wednesday. thursday 40s. temperatures warming up the bit on friday. look at that weekend. saturday and sunday, upper 50s with sunshine. just gorgeous saturday. still nice in to sunday. we'll start to see the clouds increase on monday. but our chances of rain around 30%. same in the upstate. your temperatures will go a little bit cooler gradually in
