Nussbaum says overnight lows will be in the 40s on both sides of the lake, and temps will stay in the 40 all day Wednesday and Thursday with more rain. The Tuesday night rain departs, but another batch of light rain could redevelop Wednesday afternoon. At times, the rain could be heavy. Cooler-than-normal temperatures will dominate for the end of the week, the weekend and beyond.

Temperatures will fall into the upper teens and 20s Thursday night under a clear to partly cloudy sky.

This will reinforce the chilly air for the area into the weekend.but should hold up any freezing temperatures until Saturday night.

Wednesday will be mostly cloudy with rain likely in the morning, with more showers possible by evening.

Sunday: Partly cloudy, blustery and cold, chance for a few flurries. As deep, cold air continues to drill into the Carolinas the precipitation could become mostly snow Friday night. Given the low sun angle in December, it's always a challenge to try to forecast just how readily the fog will burn off, as it can be surprisingly stubborn at times this time of year.

A deep upper level trough across the eastern US will take over the weather for the foreseeable future. The guidance models are suggesting most of the development will occur well offshore, but there may be just enough energy closer to the coast to bring a period of light snow. However, we'll have to watch the forecast closely.

It will be cooler on Wednesday with highs in the mid 50s. This will likely be the coldest temperatures of the season to this point.

Monday will be sunny, with a high of 65.
