      Clouds remain entrenched across the region with cooler temperatures once again as this area of low pressure passes along the Southeast Atlantic Coastline. The system will head out to sea later today, but in the process some light moisture in the form of some light sleet and or some freezing drizzle may intrude into our area this morning. Therefore, out an abundance of caution, the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the metro region until Noon. It is most likely that most moisture will remain south of the metro areabut be alert early for the potential for trace amounts of ice and a few slick spots.

      After Noon, it will warm enough that if anything falls, it will be rain. A nice pattern emerges for Saturday with plenty of sunshine and milder highs in the mid and upper 50s. Remember before you head to bed Saturday to set you clocks ahead one hour as we return to Eastern Daylight Time. Also, it is a good time to replace the batteries in the smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in your home. A tad cooler with a morning sprinkle and temps in the 60s are likely to start the new week. Have a great weekend - be safe!
