Crisp Cold Chilly Air on Tap for the Carolinas This Weekend

As today was a putrid tropical airmass due to the remnants of Delta moving across our region, relief is in store later this week. Much cooler and drier air will be in store when we wake up on Saturday. A strong cold front will move across the region bringing us another taste of fall. It will remain warm and humid for most of this week, so we have to get through this week first before we can enjoy an autumn airmass this weekend.

The Euro operational model has below normal temperatures for our region on Saturday, and this is the same model that predicted the autumn blast that we had at the beginning of this month. It looks like the coldest air could be trapped in the mountains to our west. However, much of it will spill east into the Carolina Piedmont.

It could be a big breezy with blowing leaves on Friday and into Friday afternoon. We might have to watch for severe storms as with any cold front that brings cooler and drier air. But behind the front on Saturday and Sunday mornings, it will be chilly, and you will need a coat or jacket when you head outside, especially in the mornings.
