Tracking rain, maybe a few snowflakes, and much warmer air….The cold front that brought a lot of us rain today is now offshore, which will allow us to dry out briefly. In fact, most areas will see partly to mostly cloudy skies tonight with overnight low temperatures in the low and mid 30s.

On Thursday, all eyes will be on an area of low pressure that will track off the North Carolina coast. A few rain showers will be possible in the morning. But we’re going to watch this system closely because, with temperatures starting the day in the 30s, a few snowflakes could mix in with the rain. By afternoon, scattered rain will be around. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy skies with highs in the mid 40s.

Skies will clear as we go through Friday. Highs will be near 50. Then, this weekend, we’re expecting plenty of sunshine. High temperatures will climb into the 50s and 60s! More rain arrives by the middle of next week.

Tonight: Partly to Mostly Cloudy. A Cold Night. Low temperatures in the low and mid 30s. Winds: N 5-10 mph.

Thursday: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Showers (50%). A few snowflakes could mix in with the rain. High temperatures in the mid 40s. Winds: N 5-10 mph.

Friday: Sun and Clouds. Cool. High temperatures in the lower 50s. Winds: NW 5-15 mph.
