The first day of spring seem s a bit more like the dead of winter here in southeastern North Carolina as a blast of Arctic air overruns the region. Highs today will struggle into the mid 50s with mostly cloudy skies.
Tonight a reinforcing blast of Arctic air moves in, bringing temperatures down into the thirties as lows with wind chills in the mid to low 30s.
Highs in Thursday will straight up struggle into the low 50s on what will be a very unseasonably cool day.
Normally on the first day of spring our high temperatures run in the upper 60s for highs and the mid 40s for lows. The end of the week we will run 10 – 15 degrees under normal.
Rain chances ramp up as we head into Saturday and Sunday.
