Wet Weather Continues

Good morning folks. While it may be dry when you wake up, it will not stay that way. I would expect showers to start back up in the afternoon hours and continue on throughout the evening. Some of these rain showers could turn into thundershowers as well. Tomorrow is going to be the same way, with a dry start to the day but after noon, the rain game is afoot. Tuesday is start of the bulk of the action, where most of the day will be filled with showers and possible thunderstorms.

The seven day rain total continues to be in the 2"-5" range with isolated higher amounts in effected by thunderstorms.

Forecast Discussion

Low pressure is over the Ohio valley this morning and it's associated cold front will be the driving forces for our wet weather for the next few days. This particular front is slow moving, and should reach Central NC tomorrow morning. Once it arrives, it stalls over the center of the state and will remain there until another front, slated to arrive Friday, takes its place. However, this just means a continuation of the wet weather forecast, as there is still ample moisture and energy in the atmosphere. Meaning there's rain in the forecast for the foreseeable future.

Today and tomorrow are just a preview of what's to come, as each morning starts out dry but ends wet. Tuesday and Wednesday still look to be the wettest days as that's when the front will be fully stalled. Thereby generating the most amounts of rain for our area. Thursday through Saturday the rain will have less coverage than the previous days, but it's still in the forecast as the second cold front enters out area. Showers and possible thunderstorms will be centered around the afternoon and evening hours.
