Coming off a rather dismal weekend, we can look forward to a little more El Sol tomorrow. At least we were a little drier today after a soggy Saturday. Rainfall totals ranged anywhere from 1/4″ to 1″. There were some locally higher amounts in northeast North Carolina due to isolated downpours. Nothing to write home about.
The clouds will gradually break apart overnight, so there will be plenty of sunshine as you head out the door Monday morning. Temperatures will start in the upper-30s, then warm into the mid-50s during the afternoon.
Lots of sunshine AND seasonably mild temperatures? What did we do to deserve this?!
Ohhhh but it doesn’t last. A cold front will come through Monday night. It’ll be a silent passage – it won’t bring us much cloud cover or a chance of rain showers – it’ll simply drop temperatures for Tuesday.
We’ll go from the upper-50s to mid-40s – about a 12° temperature drop behind that cold front. Highs will be back near 50° on Wednesday, then the mercury will make a run for the 60° on Thursday. Once again, the warmest days of the week will also be the wettest days of the week. Rain will develop Thursday afternoon and continue through Thursday night into Friday morning. Some showers could linger through Friday. So far, next weekend looks dry….in case you’re going to be out doing some last minute Christmas shopping.. (Looking at my husband on that one..)
