Cold Week Ahead

There will be no doubt about it when you step outside this week -- it is winter. A cold front pushing through North Carolina is ushering in the colder air Sunday evening. Temperatures will tumble to the mid 20s by Monday morning. It will be breezy at times and that wind will make morning temperatures feel more like the upper teens. Highs will only climb to near 40 Monday afternoon.

There's no significant warm up ahead for the next several days. Much of the week will bring highs in the 40s and lows in the 20s.

Some uncertainty remains in the forecast for the end of the week. At this point, it appears we could see our next round of precipitation for the Thursday-Friday timeframe. The question right now is just how much cold air will stick around for the end of the week. Yesterday's computer models suggested it would be warm enough for the precipitation to fall as all rain. Today's model runs hint at the possibility for some wintry precipitation. Tomorrow's models may say something different. As the end of the week approaches, we'll have a better idea on what to expect. For right now, we'll just say "a chance for precipitation" for Thursday.

We'll continue to monitor the latest weather data and update our forecast as needed. Stay tuned for Weather on the Ones...
