Wednesday, October 22

Wednesday night: Partly cloudy skies this evening then clear and colder overnight. Lows in the lower-mid 40s. It sure was a windy afternoon and you can thank low pressure spinning off the Virginia coast and high pressure spinning over the Great Lake States. The two systems combined created a broad wind field across the region which helped winds gust to 20-30 mph at times. As low pressure moves out and high pressure closes in, the winds should gradually ease back. It will still be breezy this evening but winds will be far less on Thursday. Temperatures this evening will be chilly for the North Carolina State Fair with mid 50s by 8PM and then all of us in the 40s after midnight. Winds from the northwest at 5-10 mph.

Friday, October 24
