Near Record Temperatures Expected Friday; Much Cooler Weekend

Posted: Updated:
A roller coaster ride is in store for Eastern North Carolina over the next few days. For the time being, we are on the upswing as we head into Thursday and Friday of this week. This is all ahead of a major storm system that will spread wintry precipitation across the ArkLaTex, ArkLaMiss, Mississippi and Ohio River Valleys over the next few days. Out ahead of this system, warm Gulf of Mexico air will stream into Eastern North Carolina to bring much warmer temperatures.

By Thursday, temperatures will work into the the lower and middle 70s, though not record setting, they will be running above normal, around 8 - 16 degrees above normal.

Cold air will quickly return back into Eastern North Carolina heading into Saturday. Temperatures will likely begin the day (around midnight) in the middle and upper 60s, then falling steadily through the day, eventually into the 40s with rain showers likely. For Sunday, we'll struggle to work towards 50 degree with a chance for showers.
