Good Wednesday morning to everyone, it is a frigid start to the day with temperatures in the low to mid 20’s across the Piedmont and Foothills.
Today is going to feature one more cold day across the region and then significant changes are in store for the end of the week.
Arctic high pressure is in charge across the Southeast US today. With the broad center positioned nearly overhead, cold weather will remain for today.
Even with lots of sunshine today’s highs will struggle reaching the 40’s today, still a good 10 or more degrees below normal. With mostly clear skies and near calm winds temps will drop off pretty quick after sunset. Expect another round of 20’s tonight but not as cold as this morning...
For Thursday high pressure will begin to retreat off the Southeast coast bringing southerly low level back back into the region.
Tenperatures will begin the moderate as highs Thursday will get back up into the 50’s and closer to late November norms. Some clouds may begin to increase tomorrow as well in response to the veering flow.
On Friday high pressure will be off the East Coast while a low pressure is developing across the Southern Plains. Moisture recovery should be in full force at this point, in fact a few showers are possible late in the day with milder temps...by Saturday that low pressure will deliver our next solid rainmaker.
