TODAY'S WEATHER PATTERN_705678

Many of us are tired of “hugs” from Old Man Winter…which are those brief cold spells mixed in with pockets of warmer weather. However, colder air sneaks back into the forecast soon; so, the roller coaster continues.

We can blame a cold front for that. It’ll move into our area today…crossing later tonight. Ahead of it, expect near record breaking temps again (similar to what we experienced yesterday).

RECORD CHALLENGING AGAIN TODAY

Today, we have a slightly better chance for matching or breaking the current record since the forecast high is different by only a degree.  We’ll see what happens. Regardless, once the front crosses tonight, temps will gradually fall on Monday.  It’ll be warmest on Monday morning (right after Midnight) with temps near 60°

FUTURE TRAK - EARLY MONDAY BEFORE SUNRISE

…with temps down into the low 50s by the afternoon.

FUTURE TRAK - MONDAY AFTERNOON

Then, 30s are possible by the time we start our Tuesday.  So, from near 80° to upper 30s within 36 hours.

FUTURE TRAK - TUESDAY MORNING COLD

Also, with the front moving in today, expect some showers.  Best timing will be after 1PM today, but not a wash-out. Just have the umbrella handy for afternoon & evening plans.

FUTURE TRAK FORECAST- RAIN THIS PM

Rain is more likely for Monday morning as the front stalls across NC…keeping rain in our area. Drier weather is expected by the afternoon.

FUTURE TRAK FORECAST- RAIN FOR MONDAY MORNING

High pressure takes over by Tuesday…leading to sunshine.  Then, 60s & 70s return by Wednesday & Thursday ahead of another cold front.  For now, Thursday is looking pretty soggy…stay tuned.
