A large upper-level low pressure system located over the Ohio Valley will continue to funnel moisture northward across the Triangle today.
This storm system will combine with high humidity across central and eastern North Carolina to produce more showers and thunderstorms again today. With the clouds and precipitation, temperatures will only rise a few degrees, into the upper 70s across much of the region. Some of the shower and thunderstorm activity has the potential to bring heavy rain, damaging winds gusts and hail. The SPC has again put us in a Marginal Risk for Severe Weather.
A few showers will linger tonight into Friday before some drier and less humid air pushes in over the weekend. Saturday and Sunday look very nice with partly to mostly sunny skies and high temperatures close to 80 both days.
It will remain nice on Monday with high pressure in control of the weather. It will be partly sunny with temperatures near 80 F once again.
Our attention will then turn to Matthew which may be churning off the East Coast early next week. Its ultimate track and potential impacts to North Carolina will be determined by how quickly it takes a northward turn this weekend in the Caribbean.
Have a great Thursday!
