Active First Half of the Week

The first half of the work week should be active with rounds of showers and thunderstorms developing and moving through. We could see some strong thunderstorms today with heavy rain and strong and gusty winds. As we get to Thursday, the thunderstorm coverage should begin to decrease. By the weekend, we are setting up for some warm (hot in some folk's opinion) and humid days but it will be rain free for the most part.

Forecast Discussion

A front will stall over NC and stretch west towards the middle part of the Country. This stalled front and waves of low pressure developing along it, combined with the warm and moist air mass in place will provide the ingredients for complexes of showers and thunderstorms to develop to our west and move through. Although we are highlighting afternoon as the favored time for showers and thunderstorms this week, they could happen at anytime during the day or night. Daytime temperatures will be near average but night time lows will be a little above average with clouds present much of the time.

The front washes out by Wednesday but the chances of showers and thunderstorms will remain. Another cold front tries to make its way to the old North State by Friday but it will not make it. Instead, a strong ridge of high pressure at the surface and aloft will settle in over the southeastern US. This ridge will bring us very warm and maybe even hot conditions for the late week and weekend. There could still be some afternoon showers and thundershowers but they will be few and far between. It will be humid as well so it will feel uncomfortable this weekend. It will probably be a good weekend to be near the pool or a cool body of water.
