— Cold, dry air and clear skies will be the final legacy of a cold front that brought rains and gusty winds to central North Carolina Wednesday evening.

Thursday will see a high around 56 degrees, a day after the mercury hit 70 degrees in Raleigh and 76 degrees in Fayetteville.

"We're over 20 degrees colder than we were at this time yesterday morning," WRAL meteorologist Mike Moss said early Thursday.

He said Thursday will start a stretch of "cold with a lot of sun."

"Temperatures are going to take a downward trend compared to the last few days," Moss said. "It'll feel a little bit more like this time of year, as opposed to what we have had with all the warm air and humidity over the past few days."

High temperatures will stay in the 50s over the next seven days – except for Saturday, when they might not get above the upper 40s.

Overnight lows will be in the 30s Thursday and Friday nights, then dip into the 20s starting Saturday.

The average daily high this time of year in North Carolina is 56 degrees, and the average low is 35 degrees.

    "It appears that your forecast of a tenth of an inch maybe was correct"

    aprince27 - your guy is not going to respond. (Notice he has not returned comment?) He only makes comment when he has something to brag about, or when he has something to critize, opr when he has another useless prediction.

    It appears that your forecast of a tenth of an inch maybe was correct for a smaller area than WRAL's.

    Care to respond?

    YouMakeItSoEasy wouldn't make it past the math and physics prerequisites.

    "I actually think YouMakeItSoEasy is at WRAL interviewing for the weatherman position. Maybe they will let him clean the restrooms."

    Not qualified. And again, another miss with his predictions on the rain. But it is cold out there!

    Chairman- YouMakeItSoEasy is actually in the Bermuda Triangle, getting all that wind and no rain.......I told him he was going to get lost if he didn't get out of there!

    Not much rain here in the Great JoCo Desert. Somebody's camels got loose and ate up all my collards, though.
