weekend will not be talk about tough life decisions. go outside and enjoy this weather or stay in and watch march madness. i'm glad my boss made that decision for me. four teams in the ncaa tournament from north carolina and the tarheels and raleigh drew the best weather. sunshine, 75 right now up in providence where duke and the seahawks just played. it's only 59 up there and unc asheville is also in the tournament. they are in brooklyn where it's currently 53 degrees. we did pretty good in central north carolina today. plenty of sunshine, temperatures once again way above normal. no records today. many of us still in the 70s from the triangle on north still holding onto 80 in clinton and fayetteville. as we go forward for the next four days temperatures drop each day and still have
5:55 pm
the way. but here's what we've got tonight as we go hour by hour. 68 by 8:00 once the sun goes down so cooler tonight. generally cloud free and dry. by midnight down to 58 and continuing to fall through the 40s and by tomorrow morning it's friday, good news, 46. you might need a coat as you head out the door. cold front moved through and stationary down to our south and we will watch to our south west as rain continues to develop with an area of low pressure. that will be here in central north carolina this weekend. so here's how that's going to happen. first of all tomorrow another great day. a little bit cooler, maybe one or two degrees so temperatures essentially holding. so another front that's going to move through but the bigger weather maker is the area of low pressure that will move towards us on saturday. during the day saturday it looks like we are going to stay dry but increase the clouds and boy we drop those temperatures.
5:56 pm
look anything like it did today or yesterday. sunday that area of low pressure continues to move up the coast. most of our rain is going to come overnight saturday into sunday and sunday morning but temperatures won't get out of the 40s. 80s yesterday and now 40s coming on sunday. so i like saturday just a little better as the pick day of the weekend. not going to be great like today but in the morning saturday we'll be in the 40s up to 53 by lunch time and a small chance of rain late in the day. again most of the day is dry but we don't get out of the 50s and old onto your seats for sunday. a wet morning for most everyone but look at this, we don't get out of the 40s all day long. so tomorrow i love it. sunshine and 71. can't say nice things about this weekend though. 58 on saturday, 49 on sunday as spring officially begins and then we start a warm up from 54
5:57 pm
on thursday so our three degree guaranty high tomorrow is 71
