Unseasonably warm weather continues; cooler for the weekend

    Unseasonably warm weather continues through Friday, but we’ll have to contend with a chance of rain beginning tomorrow night, with precipitation becoming very likely late Thursday through Friday. 

    After a mixture of sun and clouds today, we’ll see more clouds tomorrow, then overcast conditions Thursday and Friday. Friday looks like a washout, and as the cold front passes offshore and colder air moves in during the evening, there may be some wintry precipitation in the higher elevations. Clearing for Saturday through early Sunday, then a system is modeled to pass through Sunday night into Monday morning.

    “The onset may be accompanied by freezing/frozen [precipitation],” the National Weather Service, Mount Holly office writes in its latest forecast discussion. But forecasters currently have low confidence in precipitation type timing.

    High temperatures will be in the low 50s today, increasing a few degrees tomorrow, then reaching potentially 60 degrees on Thursday. (Add a few degrees for far southern areas, subtract for highest elevations.) We’ll then drop back to the low-mid 50s on Friday, low to mid 40s on Saturday, then around 40 on Saturday. Overnight lows will be above freezing through Thursday.
