With temperatures in the 70s this afternoon, it doesn't feel much like the first day of November. At 1pm today, it was 77 in Fayetteville, 74 in Raleigh, and 72 in Greensboro. Compare that to normal highs in the mid to upper 60s this time of year.
Of course the warmer than normal November weather can't last forever. We're already tracking cooler weather that is headed our way for the end of the work week and the weekend. Here's a look at forecast highs across the country this Wednesday:
You'll notice highs in the upper 30s to 40s from Minneapolis to Chicago to Kansas City. That cold air will make a push toward the east coast as a cold front moves our way late tonight and tomorrow.
Our highs by the end of the week won't be quite that cold, but we expect highs only in the mid 50s and lows in the 30s for Friday and Saturday.
By the way, that front that will move through the Carolinas late tonight and early tomorrow won't have much moisture to work with. That means we do not expect much in the way of rain from this system. We may just see a few sprinkles in the early morning hours Thursday.
Plenty of sunshine is the forecast through the weekend, just keep those cooler temperatures in mind.
