Clouds will increase overnight. Some patchy fog is possible, especially in North Carolina. Lows will fall into the mid 40s overnight and actually rise to near 50 by Tuesday morning.

Mostly cloudy skies through the day Tuesday. It will be very mild though with highs in the mid and upper 60s. Some communities may even reach the 70 degree mark! Not too bad for February. A strong and slow-moving cold front will approach and cross the area late Tuesday and early Wednesday. Rain chances will increase Tuesday afternoon, but most of the daylight hours should remain dry. Expect showers overnight and into the day Wednesday. We could see showers linger into the afternoon hours. Temperatures will be much cooler and only reach the upper 40s to near 50. Lows will fall into the mid 30s.

Skies will be mostly cloudy on Thursday. It will be much colder with highs only in the upper 30s and low 40s. An area of low pressure will form well to our south, but some moisture looks like it could make it to our area. Cold air will be rushing in as well, which means we could see a rain/snow mix or some snowflakes late Thursday into early Friday. It's still days away and models are not in total agreement, but we will continue to keep a close eye on this system. Temperatures will plummet into the upper 20s and low 30s, with wind chills in the upper teens Friday morning. High temperatures on Friday will struggle to get out of the 30s. Brr! It will be a blustery day with winds out of the north.

The weekend is looking dry and milder. Temperatures will warm to the low 50s on Saturday and mid 50s on Sunday.

Rain chances increase to start the work week with highs in the upper 50s.
