Below is today's edition of the Carolina Weather Video. In the post below this one is my winter forecast and video.
A much cooler airmass has arrived across our region. Despite a sunny sky, highs today will warm into the low to at most mid 60s.
Many locations will have their coldest night thus far this season tonight. Under a clear sky, temps will drop off into the 30s by Saturday morning, and in many Piedmont locations, temps will likely be cold enough for frost. Some of the traditionally colder spots might even dip into the lower 30s.
A delightful October weekend is on tap. Look for sunshine with 60s for highs tomorrow and lower 70s for Halloween. No problems either evening for the trick-or-treaters.
Next week will be a cool week overall. At some point, likely Tuesday through Thursday, our next system will roll in. Lots of uncertainty with the details of that one, but I will mention some shower chances those days, and we might wind up with a few days with highs in the 50s.
Tropical Storm Shary will scrape near Bermuda today as a minumal tropical storm....then head out to sea.
There is a sizable tropical wave nearing the eastern Caribbean. We will watch that one for development.
