Fall weather is in full swing. Cool air, mainly cloudy skies, and low humidity will be a common theme throughout the next week here in North Carolina.
A steady flow of cool air from the northeast remains in place across the Piedmont, and is keeping us well below average temperature-wise. With a stalled front to our south, clouds remain in place. This will continue with a cloudy, cool night ahead.
For Monday, high pressure in New England will begin to shift a bit farther east. This will loosen the grip of cool air on our region. Instead of highs right around 70, temperatures should have a chance to squeak into the mid 70's for highs. Skies will remain mostly cloudy with a few peeks of sunshine.
Another shot of cool air will be quickly approaching. This cold front will swing through the Carolinas Monday night into Tuesday morning bringing a slight chance for a shower or two. Most importantly, it will keep our temperatures below normal the rest of the week.
A "wedge" pattern will take hold Wednesday. This means cool air flowing down the coast, with steady cloud cover overhead and patchy drizzle from time to time. Highs will have a tough time reaching 70 degrees both Wednesday and Thursday. By the weekend, skies should break up a bit with highs in the mid 70's.
Our average high is 80, and our average low is 61.
