It wasn’t a white Christmas, but it may be a white day-after-Christmas. At least for a little bit.
Meteorologists from the National Weather Service in Mt. Holly are tracking an east coast storm and say there will be some snow and sleet this afternoon. However, right before the evening rush hour, that precipitation is supposed to change to rain, said Mark DeLisi, meteorologist.
The rain could be heavy tonight, officials said.
Wind will also be a factor. Gusts could hit 31 miles per hour today but average 13 to 20 mph. Tonight, we should feel an east wind of 16 to 25 mph, with gusts as high as 40 mph.
After tonight, there could be up to two inches of precipitation.
Tonight’s low will be in the mid- to upper-30s.
Rain is likely Thursday early morning, with a high near 45.
