Unusually warm weather ends, chill moves in

January 15, 2013 5:43:01 AM PST
The unusually warm weather for January has come to an end across the northern part of the state.

Instead of being in the 60s and 70s, temperatures will be mostly in the 50s the rest of this week, though 60s could hang around in the Sandhills.

A cold front working through the area is also going to produce bouts of rain Tuesday and Wednesday.

"Rain is going to continue at times into Wednesday, and then there may be a break on Wednesday night before another batch of rain works across the area on Thursday or Thursday night," ABC11 Meteorologist Don Schwenneker said. "Depending on the track of that storm, there could be some snow in the mountains of western North Carolina. Once that storm pulls away, we should be able to squeeze out a dry day on Friday."

Schwenneker says another storm system may try to develop along the coast over the weekend.

"At this point, it appears dry weather should stay in control, though rain may not be too far away to the east," he said.

Temperatures over the next week are going to be much closer to average and could end up well below average next week.
