What a chilly start to the weekend. Even with sunshine, it was a cold Saturday. We'll face a bitter cold night, and then see a gradual warm-up heading into next week. Temperatures will be back in the 70s by Wednesday.
High pressure to our west has been funneling in cold air straight from Canada into the Triad all day long. This stiff wind will calm down a bit overnight as high pressure drifts overhead. For us, this will mean perfect conditions for a bitterly cold night. Temperatures will plummet into the mid 20s for lows -- not quite record breaking, but close. If you've planted summer flowers already, you'll need to protect them.
It will be a really cold start to our Sunday, but sunshine will eventually warm us up. Look for temperatures to rise above freezing by mid-morning, eventually topping out in the mid 50s by late Sunday afternoon. Winds will not be a brisk on Sunday, helping us to feel a bit less chilly.
A new cold front will march toward the area on Monday. This front will be relatively weak and without much moisture. We'll run the risk at a few passing showers, but temperatures will be milder in the low 60s.
Tuesday and Wednesday will be quiet and mild with highs in the mid to upper 60s. We'll be in the low 70s by Thursday and Friday, with a better chance for showers and perhaps even a few storms.
The normal high is 65, and the normal low is 42.
