6:16 pm
so we will go down to 42 at 8, 38 at 10. and 36 at mid night and we continue to fall all the way down to 29 degrees by early thursday morning. so that's when it will be when you walk out the door tomorrow morning for work and school. this morning, it was about 50 or 55. so we are going to be about 20 degrees colder. so make sure to have your coat ready. reason don't became me. blame this cold front. again it came through overnight with some rain. thankfully not severe. high pressure in control but even that is not going to hang around long. we have got another round of mainly overnight rain on the way. so let's talk about how that's going to get. first tomorrow morning, i mentioned it will be cold. but sunny and then throughout the day, we will slowly increase the cloud cover. so we will stop it here at 5 tomorrow night and we have got cloud but still dry weather. the rain and snow back to the west. but this time around, it's a mainly cold rain event for us. mainly cold. got one exception that could happen so here we are at 8 you
6:17 pm
so we get through the day with dry weather. and it's the overnight hours that once again have rain and here we are at 6 a.m. you can see stale little bit of rain and then look at that rain snow line. it's just to the north. and because it's getting later in the season and more importantly because we don't have a strong flow of cold air from the north. it can't make it all the way down to our area to turn the rain to snow. now what we might see for you guys say in person county maybe up by the virginia border north of greensboro they might have a little bit of wet snow mixing in with the rain. and it would have no impact on our roads but a cold rain is not really that much better. the cold rain will be out of here by 10 or 11 a.m. and then we commence getting ready for the weekend which will be sunny and eventually warmer. but warm is not a word i will use to describe tomorrow morning. these are the numbers you willhave when you walk out. 28 in louisburg and 28 in durham a colder start tomorrow morning.
6:18 pm
