Cool and Refreshing
Tuesday continued the warm and humid conditions with afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms. But tomorrow and Thursday will be like a cool and refreshing beverage when you are hot and thirsty with lots of sunshine and lower humidity levels. By Friday, we'll notice an increase in humidity but overall, it will be a good day. For the weekend, it is looking like a return to summer with warm and humid conditions and afternoon showers and thunderstorms developing.

A cold front will work its way through NC this evening bringing showers and thunderstorms ahead of it this afternoon and evening. After the front passes this evening, you'll notice cooler and drier air filtering in. As the front settles to our south, it looks like 5 golf ball weather as we enjoy lots of sunshine and comfortable temperatures for Wednesday and Thursday.
By Friday, the wind will shift to the south and southeast bringing back the humidity we all know and love. Unfortunately for the weekend, that cold front will begin to return north as a warm front and that will trigger afternoon showers and thunderstorms for Saturday and Sunday. Another cold front will try to make its way through NC early next week but it appears it will stall over us and keep us in a stormy pattern. It has been a dry month so far so consistent rain will be appreciated.
