Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

A series of showery low pressure systems could graze the Cape Fear Region as Thanksgiving weekend nears. One such system brought us overnight rain, and will soon be ushered out by a cold front. another such system may bring a slight chance of showers for Thanksgiving, but the best chance would be along the coast. Temperatures will be seasonably cool for most of the forecast period.

WEDNESDAY DETAILS: A low chance for a leftover shower exists early, along with some patchy fog, but the vast majority of times and places ought to be dry with partly sunny skies... and temperatures ought to easily swell to the middle and upper 60s for highs. Nice conditions for local and regional travel!

LONG RANGE HIGHLIGHTS: Thanksgiving will have variable clouds, a 20% risk at the most for showers, and highs in the 50s. Rain chances will trend back to near 0% by the latter stages of the holiday weekend amid a continued cool temperature pattern.

EARLY NEXT WEEK: The new workweek will start chilly with subfreezing lows in many spots Monday morning and high struggling to top 50 Monday afternoon under mainly sunny skies. Temperatures will rebound to the low 60s under sunny skies Tuesday afternoon. 

TROPICS: November 21 marks the start of the final ten days of the horrendous 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season. Should another tropical storm form, it'd get the name Sean. Thankfully, new tropical storm development is not likely anywhere in the Atlantic Basin Tuesday.
