A cold front passed through eastern Carolina late Monday and that will give us drier and much cooler air through midweek. A warming trend will take us back into the 60s Thursday through Saturday ahead of a cold front that will sweep through the area by early Sunday. A few showers may develop ahead of the front on Saturday followed by much cooler air Sunday into early next week. A significant storm system is likely to form early next week then move northeastward across the area. Current indications point to a cool but dry Thanksgiving. Our normal high temperatures are in the lower 60s in late November.
The official Climate Prediction Center winter forecast will be out later in the week. I'll take a look at the new forecast in my next update. The last forecast called for near normal temperatures and rainfall.
