Hello, and Happy Sunday!
From record-breaking warm weather, to rain to wind..this has been one interesting week in North Carolina! Most of saturday's rain fell from Fayetteville northward through the Triangle to the Henderson area and eastward to the coast. (see totals from the National weather service at the end of this posting).
The news today...Wind! The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Advisory throughout the day today into early monday morning (about 4am). Sustained winds from the west will be in the range of 20-35mph with gusts that could be as high as 40-50mph. Even though we have highs ranging from 50 to the mid 50s, it will feel colder thanks to those winds.
If you have anything that needs to anchored down outside (even the trash bin could topple, keep that in mind!)make sure its done before you head out today!
Skies will clear later today, and we'll have mostly clear skies tonight. Still windy with lows near 30, and tomorrow our winds diminish and sunshine increases. Highs for the start of your work week will be in the upper 40s.
