Goodbye to the Hot Temperatures, For Now....

Wednesday was another record day when it came to the heat in the Triangle. The high of 90 at the Raleigh-Durham Airport tied the record high for May 2. A high of 90 had also been reached in 1951.

Here's a look at other highs around the region from Wednesday --
  • Fayetteville: 92
  • Fort Bragg: 91
  • Goldsboro: 91
  • Laurinburg-Maxton: 91
  • Southern Pines: 91
  • Clayton: 90
  • Lumberton: 89
  • NC State Centinneal Campus (Raleigh): 89
  • Rocky Mount-Wilson: 89
  • Chapel Hill: 88
  • Louisburg: 88
  • Henderson-Oxford: 86
We won't see highs quite that warm at least for the next few days thanks to a cold front that is pushing toward South Carolina today.

Cooler air will wedge its way into central North Carolina through Friday. That will keep us cloudy with a few light rain showers. Temperatures only reach the 60s during the day. However, some locations around the Triad may stay in the upper 50s all day.

The cool air won't stick around for too long. Near normal highs (mid 70s) should return early next week with highs well above normal returning by midweek.
