February 12: Cooler Weather Moving In

WEATHER

Buckle up, we’re in for a lot of ups and downs in the weather this week — beginning with a drop in temperatures today. We started off in the 60s, but by this afternoon it will be a mix of 40s and 50s across central North Carolina:
The shower activity will gradually shift eastward throughout the day, but keep the umbrella handy…even though rain chances will diminish, they won’t disappear entirely. The HRRR model’s radar simulation shows the trend toward fewer showers by this afternoon:
 
The cooler air will continue flowing in from the north overnight — we’ll end up mostly in the 30s by early Tuesday morning:
Tuesday will be a gray and chilly day, with highs running about ten degrees below average:
I don’t think we’ll see too many showers during the day, but some spotty rain could develop south of the Triangle in the late afternoon and evening.

Warmer air will start to move back in after a chilly start on Wednesday, and check out those temperatures for Thursday and Friday!
A few showers could accompany the warmer air’s arrival late Wednesday, then a cold front Friday evening will spark our next good chance of showers and a few storms. That front will deliver cooler air for the weekend, but we’re not talking about a prolonged cold snap — just a return to near-average temperatures for Saturday and Sunday.
