In the middle of November, average high temperatures are still in the mid 60s for central North Carolina. We've seen highs below that since this past weekend and that will not change Tuesday. Today's highs will range from the mid 50s in the Triangle to the upper 50s in the Sandhills.
A weak disturbance passing through the state will bring cloud cover mixed with some sun through the day Tuesday. Any clouds around in the late afternoon hours 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 in the mid 30s. A few outlying areas could wake up to the low 30s around sunrise.
Mostly sunny and dry weather is still in the forecast from Wednesday through Friday. Wednesday's highs will be in the upper 50s to near 60. Thursday will be the warmest day of the week with highs in the mid 60s. Friday afternoon's temperatures will return to the upper 50s to near 60.
Our next chance for rain is now expected Saturday afternoon 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 or just below freezing for Monday and next Tuesday mornings.
