Good Tuesday everyone.
I hope that your day is off to a good start. It was a chilly start for sure. Mostly areas were able to clear out overnight. Temperatures fell into the low to mid 30's. Today we have high pressure building into the area, so we should see mainly sunny skies for a majority of the day before a few clouds filter in towards the evening hours. Tonight we shouldn't see temperatures as cold, most areas should bottom out in the mid to upper 30's.
Wednesday we continue to see high pressure dominate the forecast. We will see clouds start to move into the area late Wednesday afternoon, as the next storm system approaches. Temperatures will be around 60 degrees.
As we head into Thursday and Friday, a warm front ahead of the cold front will swing through the area in the early afternoon hours. This will ramp up precipitation chances. If we have enough instability in the area, that could trigger a few thunderstorms. Rain could be heavy at times as the moist southerly flow moves into the area. Highs will be in the low to mid 60's. Friday we will see the cold front moving close to the area. Over the past few days models have hinted on the potential for a few severe storms as the front passes through. It looks like we could have a some instability and enough shear to produce a few severe storms across the area on Friday. Basically this will boil down to the frontal passage. If the front moves through the area during peak heating, we could see these storms. The front should pass through by Friday evening. This could kick off a few flurries or snow showers in the North Carolina mountains.
This weekend, looks to be dry and much cooler as high pressure moves into the area.
Have a great day!
