Typical Fall Weather Ahead NC 10-16-13

High pressure weakens over the area today ahead of an advancing cold front.  Clouds will increase throughout the day as the frontal boundary approaches.  Temps will be a little above average for this time of year.  It looks like today will be the warmest day for a couple of weeks.  More on that in a minute.

The front will march through the region tomorrow.  It's going to be a dreary day with widespread showers that should taper off in the evening.  Not the nicest of days.  Enough said.

Friday will see high pressure briefly move in.  A good bit of sunshine will be accompanied by cooler temperatures.

A second front tries to make a run at us on Saturday.  It looks to weaken significantly before it gets here though.  At the same time, the first front from Thursday will be off the coast and a disturbance will move up along it, throwing moisture inland.  It definitely looks like we'll see a good bit of clouds and temps will be bumped down a few notches from Friday.  As for precip, there is model discrepancy.  Right now, it looks like at best we'll see some scattered afternoon showers.  Nothing major.  In general, Saturday looks drier than not though at this time.  That could change though.

High pressure moves in Sunday and we'll see several days of cool and sunny conditions.  Overnight lows Sunday and Monday look interesting right now.  We could see some frost in the valley locations.

The overall pattern for the latter half of the month looks unseasonably chilly.  A second shot of cold air arrives the middle of next week and the last week of October looks to be shockingly cold after the warm fall we've had.
