A cold front will cross the region late tonight. Ahead of the front, scattered downpours are possible. The radar is already picking up on the storms in the mountains, Sunday afternoon. The changing air mass will gradually settle in Monday. It will be a mostly sunny day, but temperatures will warm up to the 70s. It will also be gusty at times. Tuesday, temperatures will crash and so will dew points. Temperatures will barely get out of the 60s on Tuesday. Wednesday and Thursday will also be cool, and dry. Overnight lows will be cool in the 40s/50s.
As of Sunday afternoon, Tropical Storm Ian still struggles to organize over the western Caribbean. It is forecast to strengthen to a hurricane in the next 24 hours. It's forecast to rapidly intensify as it crosses the warm Gulf Waters and travels north. The cone of uncertainty has consistently curved a path with Ian's center approaching the Florida panhandle. There is still big uncertainty on the exact track. However, the timing of Ian's arrival of a Gulf Coast landfall will be Thursday/Friday. The track of Ian beyond landfall still widely varies but if there were to be any impacts to North Carolina they are more likely Saturday/Sunday with the early arrival time of clouds and winds as soon as Thursday. Please keep in mind timing can change through the week.
Early preps? While any rain or wind for us is still very unclear, you could be proactive and store yard furniture and secure light objects around your house. Also, remove dead limbs from trees. Not only will this help for anything that comes our way later this week, but it will also get you ready for any ice this winter.
The normal high is 78, and the normal low is 58.
