Highs will warm to around 90 or so in many spots this afternoon. However, that warmth will be a distant memory by Friday and the weekend.
The cold front will move through tomorrow, and due to the timing of the front, it could be a day where the mountains have highs in the 60s while it warms to near 90 in the Sandhills. An isolated shower or storm is possible.
A pronounced cold air damming scenario will unfold behind the front Friday through the weekend. How much rain is involved Friday and Saturday will determine exactly how chilly it is.
Some of the modeling has backed off on the amounts of rain Friday and Saturday, and that would mean it could be a little bit less chilly than mentioned yesterday. But still, I will go with highs struggling to make it into the lower 60s in many places Friday, and not a whole lot warmer Saturday. With enough rain, it is still fully possible that some areas will remain in the 50s either day.
The wedge will gradually scour out by early next week with a slow warming trend each day.
