It will be mostly sunny today and though not as warm, it’ll still be above normal. Accumulating snow will arrive early Saturday.

Today’s high will be near 53 degrees, about 10 degrees above normal for this time of year, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington.

Tonight will be mostly cloudy. Rain is expected between 1 and 4 a.m., then snow. The overnight low will drop to around 25 degrees. Snow accumulation of around an inch possible.

Snow is expected mainly before 8 a.m. Saturday, with new snow accumulation of 1 to 2 inches possible. Rapidly falling temperatures below freezing Saturday morning may create slick spots on untreated surfaces and especially on elevated surfaces such as bridges and overpasses.

Saturday’s high temperature will be around freezing. Skies will be mostly clear Saturday night with an overnight low around 23 degrees.

Sunday will be sunny and warmer with a high near 53 degrees. Skies will be partly cloudy Sunday night, which will have an overnight low around 35 degrees.

The high temperature will push back into the 60s for Monday and Tuesday, though rain showers return Monday night and will continue possibly through the rest of the workweek, the NWS said.
