Real chill sets in Friday night in the Carolinas

After the cold front pushed through the Carolinas today, temperatures took a tumble, but they will continue to tumble once again later this week as a reinforcing shot of cool air moves in. The sticky air is gone, and  likely will be for a while. Morning lows this week will be in the 50s and 60s, but by Saturday morning the lows will be in the 40s in many locations. The mountains and outlying areas could see lows into the upper 30s.

Some may say this will be “perfect” fall temperatures, as the days will be sunny and bright with less humidity, and cool crisp evenings. The below normal temperature trend appears to be around through the first week of October! This will be perfect for outdoor fires and activities. Of course, on chilly nights a jacket or light coat may be needed for some.
