Rowan weather: Very dry and cool

Published 8:05 am Tuesday, November 22, 2016

Rowan is one of 47 counties under a burning ban due to the very low humidity and extremely dry conditions. The ban means no outdoor burning, even if a permit was issued.

Today’s air quality is Code Yellow, or moderate, an improvement from Code Orange, which is unhealthy. The air quality is OK, but unusually sensitive people may be affected during a Code Yellow day.

We’ll have more sunshine and a cool high of 58, with north wind around 5 mph. Tonight will be partly cloudy with another low in the 20s, 29 degrees.

Wednesday will be partly sunny, with a high of 60 and south wind at 5-7 mph in the afternoon. Should be a good day for the Holiday Caravan Parade, which starts at 2 p.m. in Spencer and 3 p.m. in Salisbury.

Wednesday night brings a 20 percent chance of showers, with a low of 43.

Thanksgiving Day also has a 20 percent chance of showers before 9 a.m. Then it will be mostly sunny and warmer, with a high of 66. West southwest wind will blow around 6 mph. The low will be 44.

Black Friday will be mostly sunny and 66, with a low of 38.

Saturday will be sunny and 61, with a clear, cold night and a low of 30.

Sunday will be mostly sunny and 58, with a low of 37.
