GREENSBORO, N.C. -- A cold front will move east of the Triad this morning, then stall over eastern North Carolina.
High pressure, with cool and drier air will build over the eastern third of the nation through Friday. This will bring much cooler and drier surface air to the Piedmont Triad. The moisture and stalled front over the east will build back to the west over the weekend. This will increase clouds and the chance of showers for Friday through Sunday.
Get ready for much more comfortable weather for the Piedmont for the next three to five days. Although drier air will filter in at the surface, some moisture will remain in the mid and upper levels of the atmosphere. This will produce a mix of sun and clouds today and Thursday. High temperatures today will be near 80 and near 78 on Thursday. Under a partly cloudy sky tonight, lows will fall into the much cooler upper 50s
As the high pressure center moves off the East Coast, a more moist easterly wind flow will develop. Clouds will increase on Friday with a 30 percent chance of light rain and drizzle in the afternoon. The high on Friday will be 76. There will be a 40 percent to 50 percent chance of showers on Saturday and Sunday. The higher rain chance along with thicker clouds will keep high temperatures in the mid 70s.
