Cooler Weekend Ahead

Summary: Today marks the final warm day before brisk and much cooler conditions arrive this weekend. Dry weather is likely through midweek.

Good morning! The unusually warm early fall weather will continue across central NC today before a cold front rolls through the area and brings another shot of very chilly conditions; temperatures go from being around 5 degrees above normal with sunshine today to nearly 10 below tomorrow. Moisture remains scarce with this boundary. So there will be no rain; however, clouds will increase this evening and overnight.

Next Week: Afternoon highs both Monday and Tuesday should be near average. There will be a weak disturbance crossing the region Monday. Moisture looks limited, so we've opted to keep the forecast dry for mow. Wednesday should be dry and quiet as well with a bit more warming ahead of another strong cold front on Thursday. This front looks to have more of a moisture supply and could bring showers and some thunder to the region. For now, we'll keep the best timing for rain/thundershowers to later in the day.

Tropics: TD13 became Tropical Storm Julia late Friday morning. The forecast shows Julia reaching the coast of Nicaragua early Sunday morning as a category 1 hurricane-the timing is a little sooner than the previous forecast. Julia and its remnants should remain over Central America and southern Mexico through Tuesday.

Have a great day!
