Less than 48 hours after an arctic blast hit the Sandhills region with the full force of winter — in terms of temperature, at least — another system has Richmond County on the lookout for freezing rain.

hazardousweatheroutlookSunday night’s rain aside — the overnight low into Monday is to be about 37 degrees — Monday’s high of 47 will help the expected light rain and drizzle stay just that. That could change on Tuesday. The National Weather Service has included Richmond, Scotland, Moore, Montgomery, Scotland and Anson counties in a Hazardous Weather Outlook.

There’s a 40 percent chance of rain Tuesday. With a daytime high of 44, that won’t be a problem. Tuesday night, though, could bring a different scenario — into late Wednesday morning.

“Lighting freezing rain may develop across portions of central North Carolina Tuesday evening into Tuesday night as an upper level disturbance approaches from the west and the arctic high pressure builds into the region from the north,” the advisory reads. “A winter weather advisory for light ice accumulation and dangerous travel conditions may be needed for all or portions of central North Carolina Tuesday evening through Wednesday morning.”
