Seriously Cirrus

High pressure moves over the Carolinas today but warmer air pushes in aloft, which will generate a shield of cirrus clouds that mask the sun for most of the day. We might see some filtered sunshine out there but I think clouds will do an effective job of keeping the sun's warmth away.

In response, temperatures will struggle to warm to 50 in much of the region. The city and points south probably make it there but areas to the north may struggle to get to 50 by day's end.  The good news is that winds will be a good bit lighter tomorrow, generally in the 6 to 12 miles per hour range. There will just be less sun out as the cirrus deck hangs out over the region for a good chunk of the day.
