The big temperature change I have been highlighting for a while begins today and tonight. A sharp cold front will zip through the region today, and along with the front will come a thin band of clouds and showers. The shower chances will increase the further east you go in the region. Highs today in the I-85 corridor will be in the 70s with some 80s further east.
By tomorrow morning, most everybody in the region will be in the 40s....with 30s in the mountains and a few snowflakes possible. Highs tomorrow will struggle to even make it into the lower 60s...and some spots in the foothills will likely top out in the upper 50s. Many mountain highs will be in the 40s at best.
Piedmont lows Sunday and Monday morning will be in the lower 40s and upper 30s....chilly stuff.
Highs will rebound into the 70s by Tuesday and Wednesday next week.
Ophelia is a hurricane and will pass east of Bermuda this weekend.
Philippe will head generally west-northwest over open Atlantic waters through mid-week next week.
