Warm 80s and Sunny today. Some clouds will approach and Saturday will have some clouds around. Areas out towards the mountains may see a light rain chance and much cooler temperatures with some cold air spilling southward and maybe some showers. This will be caused by cold air damming or what is known as a wedge. Some show a really cool day with 50s tomorrow and some showers in the western piedmont and mountain areas. Temps recover Sunday and partly cloudy skies. Showers will overspread the are Tuesday Night and cooler air to the 60s and around 60 by Thursday.
Very warm with highs into the lower 80s today! 70s look to continue through Tuesday, except some cooler air (60s) far western areas Saturday. Wednesday will see some showers and temperatures will get knocked back to the 60s Wednesday and Thursday.
As you can see, there are signs the long range will be colder than normal. There is a chance that there could be a real cold shot in the midst of this as well! We will have to watch and see! Temps cool from the 70s Monday to 50s north and 60s south Tuesday through Thursday with 70s in the far south.
We will see temperature is warming today well into the 60s and 70s. Temperatures will remain warm tomorrow but there will be some increasing clouds especially in the north as a front and easterly flow sets up to cause a cloudy weekend with rain showers in southern Virginia and North Carolina. Temperatures in the north will be knocked down into the upper 50s to lower 60s on Saturday, but all areas will warm nicely on Sunday back up into the 60s and 70s and maybe even low 80s in the far south as the front is pushed back north and spreads more showers north. The storm system approaches rain chances increase on Monday and the system becomes “hung up” in the region providing a chance of showers daily through at least Wednesday of next week. Temperatures will remain in the 60s and even 70s in the south. Long range forecast still appears to show about normal temperatures.

Long range Temperature Forecast
Kind of a gloomy start of the month with clouds and maybe some sprinkles today, especially towards the mountains and in the north. Temps in the 50s in the north, but much warmer down in NC with the 70s! The warmer temps will work north and be in the whole region Thursday and Friday! Temps will soar to the 60s and 70s.. even 80s far south. A front approaches the region Friday night and Saturday. Clouds and some showers seem possible on and off this weekend, with temps cooling in the north back to 50s and lower 60s. BUT that looks brief as temps begin warming into the 70s again by Monday region-wide!
Long term still looks warmer than normal. Some colder air may visit later in the forecast period but it is unclear now!
