Winds, between 15 and 20 mph, are going to be a big factor for travel and visibility may be low where rain is intense. Isolated thunderstorms may occur, but widespread severe thunderstorms are not in the forecast.

Unseasonably cold air will pour into North Carolina, causing temperatures to plummet through the night. Lows in the upper 20’s will threaten any tender plants, and gardeners are encouraged to cover their gardens overnight.

Mostly sunny skies are ahead for Wednesday and temperatures will rebound nicely, into the mid-50s by afternoon.
