Diminishing PM Storms; Nice Weekend
This afternoon we had to contend with scattered showers and storms. These begin to diminish through the evening hours and finally abate later tonight. Meanwhile, we're happy to report that it looks like we have the "golden ticket" for three dry days in a row! That is the plan Saturday through Monday, but I imagine somewhere in the mix a rogue pop-up shower manages to materialize. Nevertheless, expect a warm and dry weekend with comfortable temperatures at night.

Hi: 78 Lo: 60

Wednesday - Partly to mostly cloudy; Scattered PM showers & t-showers; High in the mid 70s; Low near 60 degrees
Thursday - Partly sunny by afternoon; Scattered afternoon to early evening showers & t-showers; High in the mid 70s; Low near 60 degrees
After another round of rowdy thunderstorms from this afternoon and evening, we expect a bit of a break for the weekend ahead. A stationary front that has been situated across central NC is pushed to the coast tomorrow as high pressure over the Great Lakes moves southwards. It will be warm this weekend, but the less muggy air will make for pleasant temperatures at night.
The front fades off the map early next week as the Bermuda High regains some strength. Another front moves into the Ohio Valley and stalls Tuesday through Friday, deflected by the high. The combination of the two put us right back into the daily drumbeat of scattered PM thundershowers beginning Tuesday and continuing for the rest of the work week.
