A cold front will cross North Carolina during the day, bringing much cooler temperatures for the week.

Timeline

Morning showers and thunderstorms will continue to move eastward through the day, ahead of a strong cold front.  The front will pass by the Triad between noon and 2 pm.  Winds are expected to be out of the northwest by afternoon, between 12 and 16 mph.  This will usher in drier conditions for the end of the day, with skies becoming partly cloudy.

For the evening, skies start out partly cloudy, then become mostly clear overnight.  We’ll all be able to enjoy superb temperatures as lows reach the lower 60′s by Tuesday morning!

5day rainfall

Tuesday may be our best day of the week, weather-wise.  Skies will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy with highs in the lower 80′s across the Piedmont.  (Our normal high is 88°.)  Temperatures will stay below the normal mark for the rest of the week, and it will be dry until Thursday when an isolated shower enters the forecast.  Friday will be much wetter overall with temperatures staying in the low- to mid- 80′s through the weekend.
