GREENSBORO, N.C. — The clouds, drizzle, rain, and overall gloom has returned - and we're stuck with it to start the weekend too. The good news, is that it won't last much longer. Sunshine will return Sunday afternoon, and stick around for a few days.
High pressure is sliding into place to our north. It's delivering a steady stream of cool air, locking it in here in the Piedmont. This is the recipe for cool, dreary weather - as moisture is moving in at the same time from the south. Our threat for chilly rain will continue through Saturday as this pattern stays in place. Temperatures will hover right around 40 degrees. Change is on the way from the west.
A strong cold front will be plowing across the Deep South and Midwest this weekend, and heading our way. By Sunday morning, that front will be knocking on our door. It's likely to bring us at least some scattered rain showers, and some gusty winds. With chilly temperatures, thunderstorms aren't likely in our area. We'll see clearing quickly by midday, with sunshine for the afternoon. It will be windy though, with gusts over 30 mph at times.
Dry weather will stick around for Monday and Tuesday with highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s. By the middle and end of next week we'll have to watch for the possibility for wet weather, but right now that's uncertain.
