Warmer weather making a comeback

On Monday, Greensboro broke the record for the lowest high temperature ever seen that day at 63 degrees. These well below average temperatures coupled with breezy, damp conditions characterized the weather across central North Carolina into the upstate of South Carolina as the remnants of Irma moved through.

With what's left of Irma continuing its track to the north and east into areas of New England today, a few lingering showers associated with her remnant low will remain possible through the Piedmont and Triad. However, behind that, high pressure moving in tonight will result in a warming and drying trend through the weekend. Temperatures will warm to above average levels under plenty of sunshine, with highs topping off in the mid to even upper 80s across the central portion of the state.

With this ridging pattern expected to hold into next week, expect a stretch of rain-free days with the chance for rain not anticipated to make a re-appearance in the forecast until late next week.
