Nice Warm Up Underway

General Discussion: A large area of surface high pressure is currently centered out to our east across the North and South Carolina region. It looks to generally stay anchored out over that region through the end of the work week, then looks to move off to the east as a cold front moves into the region by late week/early weekend accompanied with some showers and possibly a thunderstorm. This area looks to be on ┬áthe western side of this area of high pressure for the rest of the week, which puts our region in a southerly return flow pattern. This will result in a gradual warm up in temperatures throughout the work week from around 70 today to the upper 70’s by Thursday and Friday. Temperatures then look to cool down to seasonal normal values by the weekend behind this next cold front.

 

Temperatures have rebounded nicely from the middle 30’s this morning to around 70 this afternoon. Though, such significant diurnal temperature swings are common in very dry air masses, such as the one we are under the control of now.

 

 

Tonight: Low- 42

Low temperatures look to be a little bit warmer than they were last night, since that southerly flow has kicked in.

Tomorrow: High-72 Low-45

 

 

Tomorrow looks to offer up a basic carbon copy of today temperature and sky cover wise, though may be just a degree or two warmer. All in all, tomorrow looks to be in the low 70’s under mainly sunny skies, making tomorrow a beautiful day to get outside.
