A strong cold front will push into the Carolinas today. Ahead of the front, a surge of much warmer temperatures will boost afternoon readings into the lower 70s.

The cold front will push off shore this evening and allow much cooler weather to return to the area as we head back to work and school.

Monday morning temperatures will start out in the lower and middle 40s. Passing clouds and gusty winds will make for a blustery day as afternoon temperatures only climb into the lower and middle 50s.

The cool weather continues through midweek with nighttime temperatures well down into the 30s and daytime readings in the 50s.

The next risk of rain does not arrive until the end of the new work week.
