Despite a front that has moved across the area, there will not be much of a change in the hot, humid weather today. The humidity may be down a little from recent days, but there will still be enough moisture lingering in the wake of the weak front that a stray shower or thunderstorm cannot be ruled out completely this afternoon, mainly to the south of the Triangle.

Sunday looks to remain generally dry with a mixture of clouds and sunshine along with seasonable temperatures. We should notice the humidity shaved down a little more. Though there is the slight chance for a pop-up afternoon thunderstorm, the best chance will be south and west of the Triangle.
