1.) It has been a fairly decent day here in the NC piedmont. We were in the low 60's for most of the day, and the temps are on their way back down to what is going to be another chilly night, as temperatures will be between 33-36, depending on your location. Everyone in the rural sides of town will likely make it down to the lower end of that 33-36 range mentioned. Tonight, frost will be an issue, with calm winds, and near freezing temps. The next few days will be chilly, with Friday being the coldest. Early Friday morning we will be in the 30's and rain will start to move in. We will only hit about 52-55 on Friday, and as te rain moves in, temps will start to go down once more. Once the precip establishes itself, we will probably be back down into the upper 40's Friday afternoon. With all of this cold air, you may be thinking "when's the snow gonna' start fallin"? Snow may start falling up on the north and west facing slopes late Saturday night....Mostly flurries and light snow showers, but snow nontheless. Key point is the mountains will not experience any "quick, grab the milk and bread," kindof situation. Nothing that the folks up there can't handle.

A FROST ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 2 AM TO 9 AM EDT
THURSDAY.

LIGHT WINDS...CLEAR SKIES...AND A VERY CHILLY AIRMASS WILL ALLOW
MINIMUM TEMPERATURES TO RANGE FROM 33 TO 36 DEGREES ACROSS MOST
OF THE NORTH CAROLINA FOOTHILLS AND PIEDMONT LATE TONIGHT. THIS
WILL RESULT IN THE FORMATION OF FROST...ESPECIALLY IN RURAL
AREAS.

A FROST ADVISORY MEANS THAT FROST IS POSSIBLE. SENSITIVE OUTDOOR
PLANTS MAY BE KILLED IF LEFT UNCOVERED.


2.) Nebraska is next in line for Old Man Winter, as they will receive 6-12 inches of snow over the next day or so. I wonder who's next? Every Winter, the snow falls high up in the Absaroka Mountain Range in Montana, works it's way down to Billings, and then spreads into the plains, and eventually to NC by late December. For some reason, I think we will see a decent snowfall around Christmas... or a decent snow year overall, albeit the warm temperatures and lack of rain. Accuweather is predicting a colder and snowier than average Winter for the southeast, and aa few other sources are saying the same thing. NWS Prediction Center is not jumping on the snow and cold bandwagon, but we will have to see.

3.) Bundle up if you are heading to the stream to wet a line. If you do decide to fish, try PT nymphs, small midges, and small dries(adams,BWOs,midges). The trout aren't that picky, so as long as you are stealthy and use that 5-6x tippet, you will be fine.
