Discussion
Another day with more of the same. Patchy fog across the mountain and river valleys to start the morning. Gulf moisture continues to stream into the area, keeping things muggy today. Highs will reach the upper 80s under partly to mostly cloudy skies. Scattered afternoon rain and storms are likely. A few storms could be strong and without much movement, we once again will be under a localized flooding threat – especially for areas that received heavy rain earlier in the week. This pattern will continue through Friday.
Weekend Cold Front
A cold front will slowly drop through the area Saturday. We won’t have quite as much moisture to work with Saturday as dry air mixes into the middle layers of the atmosphere. However, we could be dealing with strong storms that produce damaging wind, or even microbursts. If you are flying Saturday afternoon, make sure you check your flight, because we could see a few delays out at CLT. It will be cooler Saturday with highs in the low to mid-80s.
Heating Up and Drying Out Next Week
Another cold front will move into the area Sunday into Monday allowing for a brief shot at more rain. However, next week is looking much hotter and drier with sunny days returning to the forecast.
