Rainy, cool weather settles into N.C.

Posted November 4, 2010

— A cold front approaching North Carolina will give the state a good soaking Thursday, followed by a cold weekend.

"It is certainly going to be a wet day," WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner said. "There's plenty of rain off to our west that we'll be dealing with all day."

Thursday's rain will be an all-day event but isn't expected to become heavy. Between a quarter and half an inch of rain is expected to fall.

A few showers are possible, and clouds will dominate Friday.

Temperatures will linger in the mid to upper 50s on Thursday and Friday, but the real cold will settle in Friday night.

From then through Monday night, "we have overnight lows at or below freezing for four nights," Gardner said.

The days will stay cool as well. Although sunshine will replace clouds, Saturday and Sunday will see highs in the low to upper 50s.

    Dude, go watch the weather channel and shut up. Oh, and quit complaining about taxes because those without jobs don't really pay much in taxes do they? I'll bet us tax payers are supporting you! So, quit whining, quit crying and go find something productive to do.
    Flunking out of meteorology school must have really stung, huh? It's either that or Greg Fischel beat you up in grade school. Bitter much??

    I have to agree with Celli. Whats the big deal if it quits raining a couple of hours before they forecasted? I know we got our good soaking over here and glad we did. More rain and all my grass seed would have washed away.

    You should change your Depends. I think they're full.

    you like it too much, that's why I try to inform you. maybe somewhere along the way you'll learn a little bit. if the mold under your mushroom doesn't cause you too many issues.

    Don't like the forecasting, go somewhere else for your weather and quit crying and whining.

    yep all sun, no clouds, no wind and no rain. as was predicted for today by the UnO'Fishel gang. NOT!

    "Bring inside or cover any plants you don't want damaged by the cold and make sure you remove the hoses from the spigots!"

    Well im glad they finally corrected the spelling of "spigots". For two days it was "spickets". Geez.

    Well, we woke up to sunny skies this morning. I could have predicted that last night by looking at the REGIONAL sattellite radar and water vapor imagery views. Why oh why cant they get this right?

    "because it is for the entire viewing area"

    that's the problem. that area, covers 14 states and crosses 412 bodies of water. you can't be everything to everyone, so just generalize it and tell yourself you're correct when it rains in Kentucky. It's worked since they came on the air, why stop now.
