Forecast Last Updated at Tuesday, November 30, 2021 at 5:07PM

Milder Ahead

Moderating temperatures will be the theme as we go through the rest of the week as high's progressively warm a few degrees each day, before topping out in the middle 60's on Friday. Somewhat cooler air returns for the upcoming weekend with our only decent shot at any precipitation in the forecast at this point not until overnight Sunday and early Monday morning.

Forecast Discussion

Cold, Canadian high pressure moved offshore today allowing milder afternoon temperatures to develop. The only real issue today was the gusty winds which will diminish after dusk.

Temperatures then warm steadily starting on Wednesday, culminating in the warmest day of the week on Friday, as highs surge into the middle 60s. A disturbance zipping by to the north on Wednesday and Wednesday night will bring in some additional clouds, and perhaps even a light shower or two across the far northwestern sections of NC and far southwestern Virginia but for everyone else, it's pretty much dry.

A dry front moves through for Saturday knocking temps back a few degrees. Another front is scheduled to push through on Monday. There may be a few showers with this front, but once again, nothing significant is expected. One of the hallmarks of a La NiƱa winter is dry weather to the east of the Appalachians and Southeastern United States. So far, that characteristic has been playing out here, with fronts falling apart before delivering meaningful rainfall.
