The same cold front that caused problems in the plains yesterday will move through the Piedmont overnight. Fortunately, it will be MUCH weaker when it gets here and we only expect rain showers with possibly a few spots hearing a clap of thunder. The rain will lag behind the front tomorrow morning and begin to taper off during the afternoon. Clouds will be stubborn and the air will get much colder. After lows tonight in the upper 40s, temperatures will climb very little on Friday only to the lower 50s. Friday night, there could still be a stray shower early, then gradual clearing with lows in the lower 30s.
Saturday will be partly cloudy and cold with highs in the upper 40s. Saturday night will be very cold with a freeze likely. Lows in the mid to upper 20s under a clear sky. Mostly sunny on Sunday with highs in the mid 50s.
Early next week a warm-up begins with highs back to the mid to upper 60s on Monday and Tuesday and then into the lower 70s on Wednesday and Thursday. Our best chance for showers and thunderstorms next week will come on Thursday.
