Greensboro, NC -- A noticeable chill was in the air Thursday afternoon and this chill will hang around for at least a couple more days.
High temperatures across the Triad Thursday afternoon were only in the low 40s. The official high temperature at the Piedmont Triad International Airport was 41 degrees which is the coldest daily high temperature in the Triad since February 12, 2012 when the high was also 41 degrees. The normal high temperature for this time of year is 48 degrees.
That chill will remain, especially for tonight, as temperatures steadily drop under a clearing sky. Temperatures will be near the freezing mark by midnight and eventually bottom out in the upper 20s Friday morning. The normal low temperature in early January is 30 degrees.
Abundant sunshine, thanks to a building area of high pressure, will help temperatures quickly rebound through Friday morning. Temperatures will eventually peak in the upper 40s Friday afternoon.
Friday night will bring another round of cold temperatures as lows drop back into the upper 20s.
A gradual shift in the flow, however, will slowly usher in more mild temperatures by the middle of next week. Temperatures next week will climb into above normal territory for the first time this year with highs by Wednesday in the middle 50s.
