Away we go for a late night forecast in North Carolina. We’ll be spending a lot of time there over the next few days. Hope you like it!
At 1154PM, ET, Winston-Salem was reporting a temperature of 50 degrees with overcast skies. A cold front that moved through the region today has left much of the eastern third of the country under a stratus shield that isn’t likely to be broken until morning, though Winston-Salem is done with rain for the night.
A weak ridge will develop tomorrow, but a pair of troughs off shore and over the Lower Ohio Valley will evolve to become one broader, deeper trough as it moves towards the Great Lakes. This will be significantly more impactful elsewhere and later in the week, but during the late afternoon on Monday, the element of the trough in the Gulfstream will generate atmospheric moisture, while the element inland will draw it ashore, and before that, it will begin to more effectively funnel cooler air into western North Carolina. The flow as the system shifts north won’t be right to bring rain to Winston-Salem, but don’t be surprised to see increasing clouds across the region.

WeatherNation’s hourly forecast remains red hot garbage, but I was feeling generous and gave them the benefit of the doubt. Their hourly forecast starts the NEXT calendar day to what you are currently looking at. Seeing as we are looking at a non standard day, the hourlies are important for tomorrow. The clouds in the area are pretty thin, which means they are barely perceptible on infrared satellite… tops just aren’t cold enough.
