WEATHER

We ended up tying yesterday’s record high temperature of 77° in the Triangle, and we’re going to be even warmer today! Sunshine will break through the early-morning cloud cover, and strong southwesterly winds will help boost temperatures to the upper 70s and even low 80s:Today’s record highs in the both the Triangle and Fayetteville are likely to fall:

Despite clear skies for most of the night, temperatures will remain exceptionally warm:

An approaching cold front will give the atmosphere a squeeze tomorrow, bringing us the chance for a couple of passing showers…but don’t get your hopes up. The HRRR model’s radar simulation from 1:00am through 1:00pm Friday shows rain to our west just falling apart as it heads our way:We’ll still be warm before the cold front arrives — high temperatures will occur around midday:

We’ll drop off a LOT Friday night, down to around freezing by early Saturday morning. Dry but chilly weather will settle in for most of the weekend, before a rain chance heads our way late Sunday:

It looks increasingly likely that a rainy weather pattern will prevail from Sunday night through Wednesday morning — not enough rain to cause flooding, but enough to keep things wet. I’m not getting carried away with the percentages in the 7-day forecast just yet, but the European forecast model (from 1pm Sunday through 1pm Wednesday) is certainly damp:Here’s the good news: temperatures will be too cool for any severe weather potential, and too warm for any wintry shenanigans on the roads.
