We are 4 days into December, and it’s already snowed twice at the Victoria-Weather headquarters. Let’s see how it is going in North Carolina.
At 1130, ET, Durham was reporting a temperature of 39 degrees with clear skies. An elongated ridge ran along the coast, with the southwestern end nosing into the Carolinas, keeping Durham dry this evening. The tenuous existence of the ridge will make the Carolinas susceptible to wet weather over the next couple of days, despite the clear skies at present.
There is a low level perturbation that is moving east out of northern Alabama tonight, and will attempt to wrap under the southern Appalachians and into the Carolina Plains with limited success. A more notable feature moving through Canada will dangle a cold front that eventually catches up to the perturbation lurking in the southeast. This boundary will more effectively tap into the moisture drawn in tomorrow morning, leading to some clouds and light rain throughout the day on Tuesday. Don’t expect the front to ever reach Durham, however, so a dramatic cool down will be averted.
