Weather Summary:

Get ready for plenty of rain late Sunday into Monday. Then, warmer air heads our way. For busy travel days, a coastal storm system may mean messy weather up and down the East Coast.

Overnight tonight clouds will begin to increase as moisture moves north and high pressure slips farther off the East Coast. A warm front will be heading our way Sunday. Rain will be moving northward into South Carolina by daybreak, and then moving in toward the Triad by midday.

The rain should start out light, but may become heavy at times as we head into Sunday afternoon and evening. A rumble of thunder can't be ruled out. In fact, for eastern North Carolina some storms may have the ability to turn strong to severe.

Rain will continue through Sunday night, and then taper off on Monday morning. Since the warm front will have moved through, Monday will be a balmy one. Highs have the chance to get up to 70 for Monday afternoon, with only the slight chance for a shower or two.

Tuesday will be a quiet day, but there are indications now that a complex storm system may be gearing up for Wednesday along the coast.

Computer models are now hinting that low pressure will be forming offshore of the Carolinas. With that, moisture will be thrown inland. This would mean that we see at least some showers during the day Wednesday and into the early morning hours for Thanksgiving.

Temperatures will be cold, and if enough cold air can be drawn down it wouldn't be impossible for mixed precipitation to be an issue for the Piedmont. We'll need to watch this busy travel day very closely.

The normal high is 58, and the normal low is 38.
