Today's Forecast Image

A northern high pressure system will bring dry but chilly weather to the Cape Fear Region early this Thanksgiving week. A coastal low pressure system could develop and bring a few rain chances later in the week. Also this week, be sure to Join First Alert Meteorologist Eric Davis for a "Facebook Live" segment on the WECT News Facebook page to answer your holiday travel weather questions in the 8 o'clock hour of Tuesday evening.

MONDAY NIGHT FORECAST DETAILS: Despite the bright skies, light northerly breezes will help keep temperatures quite cool for Monday afternoon. Expect highs in the mid 50s to around 60... below the November 20 average of 67. The sun will set at an early 5:05 p.m. and, amid light or calm winds and the aforementioned clear skies, temperatures ought to be able to quickly and efficiently drop the potentially frosty 30s overnight.

TUESDAY FORECAST DETAILS: Expect partly sunny skies, although a few more clouds may scoot in late in the day.  Rain chances will stay slim.... Daytime highs are expected to be in the middle and upper 60s, which is around seasonable for this time of the year. A few showers may skirt along coastal areas overnight. Low temperatures are projected to be in the 40s and 50s. 

EXTENDED FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: Wednesday, Thanksgiving Day, and Friday will have variably to mostly cloudy skies and rain chances in the 30% range. Some computer modeling suggests even higher rain chances could mix in for Tuesday night and early Wednesday... a development we'll continue to keep an eye on. Daytime temperatures will likely continue to be in the 50s and 60s in this period.

TROPICS: New tropical storm formation is not expected in the Atlantic Basin - including the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, and Atlantic Ocean - Monday or Tuesday. November is the final official month of Atlantic Hurricane Season.
