Possible freeze and frost conditions have come early this year to Eastern North Carolina. We usually expect our first freeze around the first or second week of November but many areas away from the coast will see near freezing conditions Thursday and Friday morning. A Freeze Warning is in effect for many areas west of Highway 17, with a Frost Advisory farther east into some coastal counties such as Craven and Beaufort. High pressure is slowly building over the area will diminish winds to near calm early each morning and that is favorable for the development of frost. A nice warm-up will occur by Friday and the weekend and we could actually see highs near 70° on Saturday. Next week should be mild at the start with temperatures near 70° with partly cloudy skies. There are already hints that another turn to colder should occur around the second week of November.
