The latest 7-day outlook shows a nice warm up just before Thanksgiving with highs reaching the 70s in parts of central and eastern North Carolina. Big changes could be on the way just after Thanksgiving though. Models have been showing some consistency in forecasting colder air moving into the eastern U.S. from just after Thanksgiving through early December. The Climate Prediction Center is also predicting colder than normal temperatures for the eastern U.S. in the latest 8 to 14 day outlook --Time will tell just how much cold our temperatures will drop during that time period. December through February is forecast to be warmer than average, but there can always be a few cold snaps in a winter that is colder than normal. Looks like we'll be reminded of that heading into December.
