Today was a great day across NC, mostly sunny with highs in the 60s and 70s. We have a cold front passing through the state; tonight will be much cooler with lows in the 30s and 40s across the state. I would bring in your plants Greensboro west just to be on the safe side.
LOOKING AHEAD: Wednesday looks excellent, mostly sunny with highs in the 60s and 70s; it will be a little cooler than today and less humid. Great day to get outside with the dogs or have lunch outside. Your daily forecast graphic is below, looking ahead at the end of the week. Thursday looks active with rain likely throughout the day and cooler for most of the day, we will watch a warm front move north in the evening this could bring the threat of Severe Weather the details are up in the air for now; I'll have more in the next section.
THURSDAY: I'm closely watching the potential for the 3rd round of Severe Weather in 2 weeks across the Deep South and even parts of North Carolina! As usual, we have more questions than answers. Right now, significant Severe Weather looks likely across the southern parts of Alabama, Georgia, and Florida Thursday. For us here in NC, The Storm Prediction Center has issued a level 2/5 and 1/5 risk across all of NC. I'm currently watching it, as we all know, many factors need to come together for severe weather. As we talked about During Monday mornings event, instability is critical. What will be the main player for Severe on Thursday will be the warm front as it advances forward, we will be in the 50s for most of the day on Thursday then the warm air will surge forward. This is something that models handle poorly. I don't like crying wolf for Severe Weather 3 days out. It is so unpredictable 72hours out, and I feel it just causes unnecessary fear. As we always do, stay tuned for updates and be prepared. Stay tuned over the next 48 hours as we get more model runs and new data.
