Frost advisories will be in effect for Wyoming and northwest Raleigh counties from 3am to 9am Thursday morning. In addition a Freeze Warning has also been issued for northwest Fayette and northwest Nicholas counties from 11pm tonight to 9am Thursday morning.

Wednesday, we’re dry but cool across the region with many starting the day out into the 30s. Be sure to give yourself a few minutes to defrost the car before hitting the road! Any remaining clouds will clear out through the morning hours leaving us with sunny skies by the afternoon. Generally highs in the 50s are expected but a few low 60s can’t be ruled out. Early gardeners watch for another widespread frost Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

Thursday, we start out chilly but make it back into the upper 50s and low 60s by the afternoon. Mostly we can thank clear skies and high pressure for that, but winds will also be slowly shifting back to the south during the day which will have an impact too!

Friday we continue to climb temperature wise even as clouds build in during the daylight hours. We could see some showers build back in by the second half of the day especially across the southern edge of our area. Temperatures will rise into the low and mid 60s.

Saturday looks a bit more unsettled, especially in our southern counties. Expect to see clouds through the day, but we still warm back up into the upper 60s and low 70s. Rain is not around all day, but have umbrellas ready to go at times throughout the day.

Sunday, another warm day with highs now topping out into the low 70s. The downside to this is we will see scattered storms forming across the region through the afternoon. This will be a nuisance, and are likely to bring a few heavy downpours across the region.

Monday, as another low passes to our north we’ll see another round of showers and storms through the area. These will have fairly widespread coverage so everyone should plan for rain at some point during their day! Highs in the 70s.

Tuesday, more rain is on the way. The pattern is similar to previous days, dress for rain as it will be around much of the day. Highs remain in the 70s, which means at least it isn’t a cold rain.

Through the extended forecast, we stay seasonable when it comes to temperatures into the 60s and 70s. Along with the seasonable weather we also remain fairly unsettled as spring storms and rains stick around for May.

Severe weather season is here, so make sure your thoughts are turning to preparedness! Refresh your emergency kit and grab that NOAA weather radio that’s still on your shopping list. We’ll continue to keep you up-to-date on the forecast so you can stay weather aware.
