Most of the rain has already left Central North Carolina this morning as a surface trough moves to the north. There remains enough moisture near the surface to allow for patchy, dense fog this morning, so give yourself some extra time as you leave this morning. Temperatures will slowly warm as we head through the day with our high temperatures not reached until just before midnight tonight in the lower 60s.
We see some breaks in the clouds on Tuesday as we warm into the lower 70s area wide ahead of our next cold front. It should arrive near sunset to bring showers through the overnight and last until about midday Wednesday. Rain could be heavy at times with temperatures falling precipitously behind the front as we knock off 20 degrees from our high Tuesday into Wednesday and an additional 10 degrees into Thursday. Temperatures will fall through the day on Wednesday, so our high temperature will be reached at midnight.
We dry out and have a cold Thursday before rain likely returns late Friday into Saturday with our next system. There are some timing issues, so we will have to iron those out as we get closer, but it could be a wet one for the Durham Parade. Our next system will arrive Tuesday of next week.
TODAY: Cloudy with a stray shower possible. Temperatures will slowly warm through the day with a late day high of 62 and southwest winds of 5 to 10 mph.
TONIGHT: Cloudy with temperatures warming through the night. A low of 62 with southwest winds at 8 to 15 mph.
TOMORROW: Mostly cloudy with rain showers arriving near and after sunset. A high of 71 and southwest winds at 10 to 20 mph
