Winter’s revenge continues across the Carolinas as a blast of cold air has reinforced what was already a pretty chilly cold regime here in the first full week of March.
A surface high pressure is located along the Lower Mississippi River Valley this morning. On the northeast periphery of that high is northwest winds drilling into the Western Carolinas. That at this time of the year is a perfect recipe for cold weather.
Even with total sunshine it will be a chilly day across the region. Afternoon highs will struggle but exceed the 40 degree mark in most lower elevation locations. Those temps are a good dozen or so degrees below normal.
If you are heading into the mountains it will be even worse as daytime highs will struggle to reach the freezing mark. Wind chill values will be in the teens and 20’s as well. Bundle up!
