RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — After a chilly start to our weekend with many temperatures across central North Carolina in the lower 30s, temperatures will climb into the 60s ahead of an approaching cold front. Clouds will gradually increase throughout the day and winds will pick up out of the southwest around 10-15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph.
The cold front will move through the state late Saturday night into the pre-dawn hours on Sunday, bringing scattered rain showers along with it. The best chance of rain will hold off until after midnight and will likely wrap up by 8 AM Sunday.
Skies will clear during the day on Sunday but temperatures will be much cooler, with highs in the mid to upper 50s. High pressure will build into the area by Monday, leading to more sunshine but a cool day with morning temperatures below freezing and afternoon highs in the low to mid 50s.
Warmer air will filter in on Tuesday and Wednesday in advance of a dry cold front that will move through late Tuesday night. Behind that front, temperatures will fall back into the low 50s by Thanksgiving and look to stay there into Black Friday.
