In the middle of November, average high temperatures are still in the upper 60s for southeastern North Carolina. We've seen highs below that since this past weekend and that will not change Tuesday. High temperatures this afternoon will only top out around 60.
A weak disturbance passing through the state will bring cloud cover mixed with some sunshine through the day Tuesday. Any clouds around in the late afternoon should clear out during the evening. That will allow temperatures to drop quickly through the night.
Wednesday morning should be the coldest morning of the week with lows near 40. A few outlying inland areas could wake up to the mid and upper 30s around sunrise.
Mostly sunny and dry weather is still in the forecast from Wednesday through Friday. Wednesday's highs will be in low 60s. Thursday will be the warmest day of the week with highs in the mid to upper 60s. Friday afternoon's temperatures will return to the low 60s.
Our next chance for rain is now expected late Saturday or Saturday night as a cold front moves across North Carolina. That will bring chilly weather for the end of the weekend and the start of next week. Lows are forecast to drop to near freezing Monday morning.
