Weather: Post-Thanksgiving temperature drop

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- Rain has cleared out of the area, and clouds are starting to gradually clear as well.

Lingering moisture tonight will lead to patchy fog developing across central North Carolina. Fog will clear later Friday morning. Weak high pressure will settle across us on Friday drying things out during the rest of the day.

A weak disturbance will swing across the state Saturday as high pressure shifts east. Moisture will be limited so rain won't be an issue, but afternoon highs will be a few degrees cooler.

Rain chances really ramp up Sunday night through Monday ahead of our next storm system. An area of low pressure and trailing cold front will move through late Monday ushering in much colder air next week. We could see significant rainfall with this system, with 2+" possible.

Highs behind the front will drop to the 40s Tuesday and lows will dip down to the 20s. Unseasonably cool air will stick around through the rest of next week.

Have a great evening!
