6:37 am
and maybe a few glimpses of blue sky for the later portions of the afternoon. not a whole lot, i think the clouds will dominate the majority of the day. but that first system is going to push off to the north and east. we will see another round of rain, however, with an area of low pressure and an associated cold front. now, as this progresses towards our region, we are going to see the moisture content really ramping up coming in from the gulf of mexico. so, by saturday in the late afternoon, evening, overnight hours, bringing us into sunday morning. that's when we will start to see moderate to maybe heavier accumulation. we will get to that in a moment. the first round, there it goes. spotty showers and isolate chance later this afternoon. overcast skies are still going to be seen but you can catch a few breaks in the cloud cover in the late day on friday. now, for the majority of saturday, we are going to stay dry. i think especially through the morning hours. but then you start to see the rain moving in from the west later on in the afternoon and it will be continuing overnight and increasing as we head into sunday morning. and at that point, we really start to quiet things down and
6:38 am
sunshine and dryer conditions as we head into the start of next work week. as we head into sunday afternoon, accumulation, at that point, can be upwards of half an inch of rain in many areas and then we will see maybe even localized spots getting closer to an inch of rain. so, 48-72 hour period of rain and then we start quieting down. upper 40s and low 50s today, but take a look at this. we will take a tumble as we head through the rest of the weekend and by the start of the next work week, we are only in the upper 30s for our afternoon highs. we are going to continue with the cool trend, but dry conditions. maybe just a slight chance of some snowflakes for the higher elevations on wednesday. but keeping things more so with sunshine as we head through the rest of the week. now, if your morning drive takes you charlotte highway, be careful there is a wreck in fairview to watch for. >>jaclyn: thanks, zack. crews are working a moped wreck in the air afterof emmitt grove road. the road is epitoen but sure to use caution if you pass through that area shortly. turning over to 19/23, we are dealing with delays between i-40
