High Pressure Will Reach North Carolina; Remaining High Temperatures

Bryan Dijkhuizen

A weak front should bring a change in the wind direction from southwest to northerly throughout the day, but there will be little danger of rain due to the presence of just high-level clouds.

High temperatures are expected to stay close to today's values due to the modest shift in the airmass brought about by the frontal passage, ranging from the mid-60s in the northeast to the mid-70s in the southwest.

High pressure will travel through the Ohio Valley Saturday night, bringing moderate northerly winds and a minor decrease in cloud cover to the region.

High pressure will move across the Ohio Valley on Sunday. This will result in just minor changes to nighttime temperatures, which will remain in the 40s once again.

A cold front moved through the region overnight, and it was directed around the Virginia-North Carolina border.

However, it is difficult to distinguish the front today in the early afternoon since there is a slight variation in wind direction, pressure, temperature, or dewpoint.

The majority of the orographic cirrus has gone, resulting in relatively clear skies worldwide.

Overnight, the synoptic characteristics will remain weakly defined throughout the whole region.

When it comes to mid-levels, the flow will become more zonal.

However, a shortwave will provide some energy to the area, allowing partly cloudy skies to form late this evening and last overnight.

With all places in the 40s, overnight lows will likely be a couple of degrees lower than yesterday.

A weak front will pass across central North Carolina early Saturday morning, bringing nothing more than a change in wind direction.

A ridge of high pressure will then develop in the southern hemisphere, extending into the Carolinas Saturday night and Sunday.
