Rowan weather: Cold today, colder in the morning

If you think today is cold, just wait until tomorrow morning.

At 8 a.m., it’s 24 degrees — the temperature has dropped 3 degrees since 6 a.m. Wednesday morning’s low will be around 18.

Today, the sun will warm us up to only 38 degrees, and a wind from the west northwest will blow at 9-13 mph, with gusts as high as 21 mph. The wind will calm down tonight and temperatures will plummet.

Tonight is the night to leave cabinet doors open under sinks and water dripping, including the bathtub. Be sure to unhook your garden hose, too.

Animals need to be brought inside or provided warm sleeping material, such as straw. People with wells need to put a light in the wellhouse and turn it on overnight.

More sun on Wednesday will bring a high near 41, but the low will drop to 26 degrees.

Thursday is warmer yet, with a high of 51 and winds from the west southwest at 5-10 mph. Down we go again, for a low of 27 degrees.

Friday will be mostly sunny and 50, with a low around 28.

Saturday will be a bit warmer, with a high near 53. A 30 percent chance of showers comes in Saturday night, when the low will be around 37.

Sunday, showers are likely, with cloudy skies and a high near 62. Chance of rain is 60 percent. The rain chance continues Sunday night, with a low of 53.

Monday brings a 40 percent chance of showers, but a high near 70.

Very little is crazier than North Carolina weather.
