What is fall in North Carolina without a chance of snow and 70 degrees all in one week? That's right. We'll end October off with some chilling temperatures, but the start to November will have you keeping out those summer clothes for just a bit longer.
Last night a cold front blew in bringing in some heavy rains, a bit of lightning, sightings of (short lived) snow in the high country, and of course much colder temperatures. Overnight low brought us down to the upper 40's, but our temperatures aren't expected to climb but a few degrees higher for the daytime high despite the gradual clearing. Going into Monday morning is when our late October chill will be in full effect as the temperature will drop down to freezing and maybe below for our forecasting region. Thanks to that freeze we won't see Monday's high climb out of the 50's for the day.
Just as quickly as the cold came in we will have warmer air will pool in behind it with the sly slide of a warm front late Wednesday. Throughout the week our temperatures will raise a few degrees day by day until we see the low 70's reappear for Friday. At this point we will have solid southerly flow with all of the humidity that comes with it and Saturday and Sunday will have a chance of some diurnal showers thanks to this flux.
At this point we're unsure when the cold will return, but we're just as hopeful as you!
