Chilly, cloudy, stormy Columbus Day
We are tracking cloudy and cool conditions for our Columbus Day.
A front that passed off our coast Sunday has allowed a shot of cool and seasonable air behind it. Couple that front with a band of moisture in the form of clouds trapped between 2-5,000 thousand feet in the atmosphere and we have the makings for a chilly and raw Columbus Day.
A high pressure settling in across the Mid-Atlantic states will promote a north-north easterly wind across Eastern Carolina.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop this afternoon. A pocket of cold air aloft moves from Arkansas towards West Virginia. While not severe, the clouds coupled with the rain will hold temperatures into the mid-upper 50s for most our area.
Rain will taper off to a drizzle by overnight, tonight. Clouds will slowly depart late tomorrow going into Wednesday. Peaks of sun are expected by mid-week.
