Chilly For The Remainder Of January

The next ten days should stay chilly with temperatures below normal in eastern North Carolina.

We will continue to see cold weather across eastern North Carolina through the end of January.  A deep snowcover to our north and west coupled with a northwesterly flow aloft will continue to funnel cold air from western Canada into the Southeast.  Through the first 20 days of January temperatures have averaged about 6 degrees below normal.  While warmer than December, January has still proven to be a formidable month for chilly air.  Current indications point to the chilly air lingering into early February but I'll have an update of that by next week.  With all the cold air around, there will most likely be a threat of a wintry event over the next two weeks.  Stay tuned!

    Hi Everyone, its time for an update! This past weekend's coastal storm I saw coming but was under the weather. Regardless, it was a rare, welcomed snow for many. In the short term, I am expecting an all rain storm Tuesday and Wednesday with possible snow on the back side. This is not the typical cold-chasing-moisture event so we may see some wet flakes before it moves out. I am eying next weekend as the EURO has popped another coastal low. We will see. Farther out, I still see the potential for a system the beginning of February and a few beyond. However, the real story is the true arctic invasion the models show during the second week of February. The models show EXTREME FRIGID air from higher latitudes to settle the eastern US. We will see if this verifies. Add storminess and February could be crazy!
