A Few Early Morning Showers

A front passing through North Carolina today brought a few early morning showers to the state. Unfortunately, the showers were brief and very light. Rainfall totals ranged anywhere from a trace to 0.05" --
  • Chapel Hill: 0.05"
  • Goldsboro: 0.05"
  • Raleigh: 0.04"
  • Rocky Mount-Wilson: 0.04"
  • Fayetteville: 0.03"

Those very few showers will be the only rain we see for most of the week. We'll turn breezy and colder, drier air moves in behind the front today. In our area, northwest winds at 15 to 25mph are expected with higher gusts. The winds will be even stronger in the North Carolina mountains where a high wind warning is in effect today. In the warning area, sustained winds of 30 to 40mph are forecast with gusts of 50 to 60mph possible.

Our next chance for rain looks to come Friday as another front passes through the region. Unfortunately, the chance for rain with that front are slim at this time. Any rain totals would be very light, similar to what we saw this morning.
