Kinda Quiet Now, Maybe Not This Weekend

The weather maps are fairly quiet right now. No huge storms really.

There are some occasional lake effect snows around the Great Lakes, some sub-zero temperatures from time to time along the Canadian border, and some pockets of rain in the west and south with occasional mountain snow in the Rockies, Sierras and Cascades.

This is all to be expected this time of the year.

There could be a potential eastern snowstorm as we head into the weekend. Forecasters are watching the areas from the mountain of Tennessee and North Carolina across the mid-Atlantic and into New England.

Winter storm watches have already been posted for upstate South Carolina, extreme eastern Tennessee, southwest Virginia and much of western and central North Carolina, including Charlotte and Raleigh/Durham.

If wintry precipitation develops across this area, we are talking early Friday and lasting into the day on Saturday - so keep abreast of the latest if you either live in that region or have holiday travel plans there.
