Weekend gets colder, next week gets wetter in central NC


One dry cold front down, but there’s another one to go later this week in central North Carolina. Wednesday’s front come through in the morning and kept temperatures in the mid to lower 50s, but colder temperatures move in overnight.

Thursday will start out with considerable clouds but some partly sunny skies will develop during the afternoon. Highs will be in the lower to middle 50s on Thursday. Friday will have a few more clouds as a weather system passes to our south. A sprinkle or stray shower is all that is possible on Friday in areas well south of the Triangle.

A dry cold front will slip through late Friday and set us up for a colder weekend. The upcoming weekend is looking bright and dry. Highs will drop back into the 40s with lows in the 20s.

The next good chance of rain will be next Monday and early Tuesday morning. Showers will be likely with highs in the lower 50s.  After that, it will turn cold for the end of next week.


OVERNIGHT will be clear early then become partly cloudy. The overnight low will be 30. Winds will be light out of the south-southwest.

THURSDAY will be cloudy in the morning to partly sunny in the afternoon. The high will be 53. Winds will be southwest 5 to 12.

FRIDAY will be partly to mostly cloudy with nothing more than a stray sprinkle or shower well south of the Triangle. The high will be 54. Winds will be west-northwest 5 to 10 mph.
