COLD AND UNSETTLED WEATHER RETURNS
I hope you have enjoyed the dry and mild weather, because cloudy and wettish weather is now returning. As we transition back into a colder (coming next week) and wet pattern the rest of the week will be highs in the 50s and 60s with 60s and 70s in Eastern NC. We will have some weak systems move through the remainder of the week, bringing light rain and clouds but nothing like we saw last week.
A strong cold front will move through Sunday evening into Monday to open the door for some of the coldest weather in many weeks. Temperatures will crash behind the front for the first week of March.
Pattern Change: The trough that has been hanging out on the west coast of the United States, brining all the storms and snowfall to there will slowly shift east. As it settles over the East Coast for the first week of March, this will bring very cold temps for the start of March. Below is the GFS depiction of the trough
How COLD will it be? Well I am expecting temperatures to be 10-20 degrees below normal, this will put some days the middle of next week struggling to get out of the 30s. A few hard freezes are also expected temps low 20s and teens. While this seems uncommon it is not, last March we started off very cold and had a warm February.
As we head into the weekend and next week stay tuned to our Facebook page for updates regarding freezes ect. If you have any questions please message on Facebook page not website.
