Time to break out the jackets, the coldest air of the season is expected after the passage of a cold front Wednesday night. 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!
Wednesday night temperatures will drop rapidly into the 40s and even 30s in the mountains a light frost 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.
Another round of welcome rain will move in late tonight into tomorrow ahead of an approaching cold front. Don't get your hopes up we are only expecting generally .25" to about a 1" of rain. This will certainly not be a drought-busting rainfall. Make sure you have your rain gear ready in the morning. Here's a look at the projected rainfall across the state.
