A deep low pressure is grinding northeast on its way to Lake Superior. The disturbance brought wind, showers, and even thunderstorms to the region Sunday night and early Monday. Rain totals of 1/4 to 1/2" were common with a few spots pushing 1 inch.
After a damp grey start bright sunshine has emerged in my area as the dry slot sweeps in on the backside of the storm center.
This means a few hours of pleasant weather this afternoon before wind, clouds, and much colder air wraps back in from west to east towards evening. Some showers are even possible over the northern half of my area later tonight. For now though, the rains have lifted north into the upper reaches of the Midwest.
Winds have also backed down for now but they are roaring out west where gusts near 60 mph are found in NC Nebraska. Gusts to 45 are likely in my area tonight and Tuesday prompting a wind advisory here. Hold onto you hat
Wind advisories or even warnings are out for much of the NC United States.
Tuesday's temperatures will stay in the 40s and low 50s. With the gusty winds it is going to feel significantly colder but aside from some light showers early, (especially in the north) precipitation won't amount to much. Enjoy that dry slot while it lasts, the weather is going downhill again by the late evening. Roll weather...TS
