Winter is Coming NC 10-18-13

Minus a slight bump in the road tomorrow, the next few days will be rather pleasant.  Seasonably cool, but pleasant nonetheless.  Change is coming though in the form of our first blast of Arctic air next week.  The end of October is looking chilly!

High pressure briefly settles in today.   These early morning clouds should burn off and we'll see plenty of blue skies this afternoon.  Temps are going to remain on the cool side though as a lot of locations will struggle to hit 60.

A moisture starved cold front makes a run at us tomorrow.  Mostly cloudy skies are the only real product of this frontal passage, but there could be some scattered afternoon light showers.  Nothing major.

High pressure moves in again behind the front for a couple of days.  Sunday and Monday look pleasant, but again seasonably cool.  Folks in the valleys can expect to see frost on the ground when they wake up Monday morning.

Another moisture starved front moves through the region on Tuesday with little fanfare.  Precip isn't expected with this frontal passage.  The main story with this front is the early season Arctic blast behind it.  Canadian high pressure moves in behind it and Wednesday will see the onset of unseasonably cold temps.  One of the more trusted models is even showing a bit of snow later in the day and into the evening.  We'll have to keep an eye on that.

Thursday and Friday look to see continued chilly conditions with frost and possibly freezing temperatures each morning.  Brrr!
