Cooling Wind Blows In

Posted February 6, 2008

— After brief and scattered rainfall, temperatures are falling across the Triangle this evening.

The system that ravaged much of the South with tornadoes weakened as it moved from west to east, bringing only a few thunderstorms across the area.

Light rain began over Sanford in the 5 o'clock hour and quickly moved eastward, with the heavier showers remaining generally to the south of the Triangle.

Skies will clear after midnight, Meteorologist Mike Maze said, with lows in the mid- to upper-40s.

Thursday, the weather will be more seasonal – mostly sunny, quiet and cooler, with highs in the mid- to upper-50s.

Friday and Saturday are expected to be in the 50s, with Sunday dipping into the low 40s.

    checkout the 8 hour loops of the mid-Atlantic radar. it looks like the nc mountains broke the system up just before it got to wake co.

    its barely going to be hit or miss sprinkles! just look at the radar. I should be a meteorologist, my weather & climate class at State should suffice.

    Well it looks like another Bust for us getting some Rain! At 12:00 there was a line of storms entering the Western Part of the State. Now if you look at the Radar there is nothing on it but way of wet weather. I know this drought will end sooner or later (they always do) but I'm getting sick of waiting.

    You've got that right Bilbo - I would have never thought that I would be sleeping with the windows open in February!! It sure was nice.

    Looks like the whole system is collasping/splitting apart as it approaches from the west and it's upper air support moves further north. A squall line may form later as the air here is very warm. Any rain would be nice!
