Warm, Drier Start to Week Ahead

Thursday's Halloween festivities are trending wetter.

 

We ended up in the 80s across much of the Piedmont this Sunday afternoon, which is well above normal for this time of year (typically, we top out in the upper 60s in late October). Hopefully, you went out and enjoyed the warmth while it lasted, because we likely won’t see the 80s again for the rest of the year. Much cooler air behind the cold front that marched through the Carolinas early this morning finally settles in tonight, as lows dip back into the mid-50s. We’ll be mostly sunny to start the week Monday afternoon, but clouds roll in overnight to set us up for a duller, grayer Tuesday. Temperatures will remain on the warm side for now, however, buzzing around the mid-to-upper 70s. Models are pointing towards a slow-developing system to trudge through the Southeast by midweek, which could set us up for a soggy Halloween.

Tonight: Mostly clear. Low: 55°. Wind: N 5-10.

Monday: Mostly sunny. High: 76°. Wind: NE 5-10.

Monday Night: Clouds increase.  Low: 58°. Wind: Light.

Tuesday: Mostly cloudy. PM shower chance. High: 72°. Wind: Light.
