Sunny to start. Increasing clouds late. Seasonal

Temperatures as of 7am are in the upper 30's to mid 40's across the region.  High Pressure to our south will move off the North Carolina coast through the day.  A strong cold front, an arctic cold front for better terms, will be approaching from the west and will approach our area by tonight.  The coldest air of the season thus far will be with us the next two days and it will feel like winter, so enjoy the seasonal temperatures today.

Mostly sunny skies to start the day, will give way to increasing clouds through the afternoon.  Winds will also increase in the afternoon out of the west-south west as the High moves offshore.  A strong westerly wind lead to a down-sloping effect and thus highs reaching a few degrees higher in areas yesterday.  While the winds won't be nearly as strong, the feeling is that highs again today will be possibly a few degrees higher than what the data is showing.  Thus, we'll see highs get to the upper 50's from the city and points south and east.  Further north, highs will range from the upper 40's to lower 50's.

The cold front will blast through the region overnight.
