Much Cooler Weather Ahead...

Ever since last weekend, we have enjoyed much warmer than normal temperatures for early March including a record breaking 84 on Monday. The warm weather is about to come to a halt as much colder air moves into the Carolinas. The rest of the week, the weekend, and early next week may all feature colder than normal weather.

The latest 6-10 day and 8-14 temperature outlook from the Climate Prediction Center both forecast colder than normal temperatures in our region of the country.

A front moving in North Carolina late today will bring the first cool down for Thursday when afternoon temperatures will only reach the 50s. Rain will become likely by Friday. The clouds and rain on Friday will lock central North Carolina into a wedge of cool air and afternoon temperatures around the Triangle may struggle to reach 40. Most of Friday will be in the 30s with off and on rain. Light freezing rain may be possible Friday morning for some areas around the Triad, mostly north and west of the Triangle.
What a change from the start of the week to the end of the week! Cloudy, cool, and wet weather will likely last through the weekend. Some of the latest computer model forecasts this morning suggest that the wet weather may continue through the first half of next week.
