COLDEST AIR OF THE SEASON LATER THIS WEEK
A strong cold front will bring the coldest air of the season to the state after the passage of a cold front Wednesday; temperatures will rapidly drop. For the Mountains and Foothills frost and a freeze is likely Wednesday night and for sure Thursday night. As you can see, this will be the coldest air of the season with most locations across the state in the 40s and 30s. Legend has it the coldest air of the season arrives with the state fair, well this year that is true!
Here's a look at the forecasted low temperatures Wednesday night into Thursday morning, a frost or a light freeze is possible in the mountains.
Another reinforcing round of colder air will follow for Thursday night into Friday, expecting a freeze in the mountains with a frost in the foothills to about Hickory.
The Mountains and Foothills will need to cover sensitive vegetation Wednesday night and Thursday night.
*Wednesday a little rainfall*
Another round of rain is possible Wednesday, however; the trend has been for less rain over the past few days. Most models indicate that less than an inch of rain is expected Wednesday statewide. Unfortunately, this will do little to help the drought situation across the state.
Stay tuned for updates on Facebook and Twitter regarding the temperatures for the end of the week!
