It is late March, but today definitely still feels like late Winter. (The first day of Spring is tomorrow).
Temps this morning started mostly in the 30s. We had low 30s and fog in some inland areas. So there was some freezing fog in a few locations. Other than that we’ll be dry today with lots of sunshine. High pressure is building into the area, but a cold front has also sunk to the south.
We’ll have a persistent northeasterly breeze today. That will keep our high temperatures in the upper 40s to low 50s. e may hit mid 50s inland/south, but that’s still about 5-10 degrees below average.
Tomorrow, the high will be close to us. So we should be dry for most of the day. High temperatures will be in the upper 50s. However, a weak area of low pressure will be forming offshore to our southeast. This will bring in some isolated showers over northeast North Carolina during the afternoon. Some isolated showers could sneak up into southeast Virginia late in the day.
We’ll have scattered showers then from Wednesday night into Thursday morning as the low moves closer to the coast. It will be weak, so we shouldn’t have any problems with wind nor tide. The models are different as to when the low kicks out. Some have the rain ending Thursday morning. Some have the rain lingering into the afternoon.
The models should come together about that by later today. High temps will be in the upper 50s to near 60. So far the weather looks pretty good from Friday into the weekend. We’ll have fair skies each day with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s.
In U.S. news…the flooding in the central part of the country is reaching historic levels. Recent rain and rapidly melting snow have created large areas of flooding across the Midwest and Plains states. Here is an article with more information: Central U.S. flooding.
