Weekend forecast brings some relief from freezing temps

Posted January 4, 2012

— Wednesday was forecast to be much warmer than Tuesday's freezing high temperatures – but it's still cold.

Morning lows were in the upper teens to low 20s across central North Carolina, but forecasters expected the day to heat up some.

The highs were expected to reach the low- to mid-40s. Skies will be mostly sunny.

A southwesterly wind moving through the area will bring increasingly warmer days throughout the weekend.

Over the next seven days, the high temperatures are expected to be near 65 degrees by Saturday before dropping off to the 50s by Tuesday.

    Hey yall its winter....just in case you were wondering

    Sure, I have an idea, just wait another 2-3 weeks when temps rail back into the 70's for good, then come the 80's,90's and 100's, and you won't have that problem.

    TheChief: You're going to have to go a lot further than Boone for snow and winter.

    Winter sure was short this this year!!! Right back into the mid 60's this weekend. You want snow and winter? Go to Boone.

    Anyone have any tips for "nasal cavity frostbite"? I run early in the morning and while i'm running (5miles) I'm breathing in cold air ...and by the time im done my nose and nasal cavity seems to be "frostbitten"/numb.

    It doesn't bother me while i'm running but one i step in to a warm environment it starts to "defrost" and the "pain" is extreme to where i start "crying" involuntary.

    Any ideas on how i may prevent this?

    You can have relief now, just stay indoors another day. Then step outside and you'll swear you picked right back up in the middle of May.

    Thank goodness the two day onslaught of wind they forecasted to blow us away did exactly the opposite. Another weather surprise.
