Rowan weather: Another chance for ice

Here it is again, a hazardous weather outlook for Thursday and Friday.
The National Weather Service is talking about a wintry mix Thursday, as an area of low pressure develops over the Gulf of Mexico and moves to the Carolina coast by Friday afternoon.
This could be a real threat — we often get wintry mixes or snow when the weather comes to us from the Gulf.
Moisture from that system will interact with cold air in place to increase the possibility of a slippery mess, but the Weather Service is cautious, warning there is some uncertainty about the track of the low and the amount of cold air.
If it all comes together, it could last into early Friday.
It’s about 10 degrees warmer this morning than it was yesterday, around 29. Today should be partly sunny with a high near 53. Clouds move in tonight with a low around 31 and northeast winds up to 18 mph.
Thursday may look something like this: A chance of rain before 5 p.m., then a chance of rain and sleet, high 41, with more northeast wind, gusting up to 20 mph. Chance of precipitation is 40 percent.
Thursday night and into Friday morning, expect rain, then freezing rain. Low 32, Chance of precipitation is 70 percent, but little to no ice accumulation is expected.
For Friday, rain or freezing rain is likely, becoming all rain after 8 a.m. High near 47, with continuing winds from the northeast, gusting as high as 18 mph. Low Friday night should be around 33.
It will climb all the way to 66 Saturday, with mostly sunny skies. Sunday should be the same, and Monday is expected to be sunny with a high of 64.
