Lower Rain Chances Today

A strong ridge of high pressure over the western Atlantic will hold its ground today and that means it will stay warm and humid with a southwest flow and some sunshine. There is enough moisture in place today that daytime heating will cause a shower or thunderstorm to pop up in parts of the area and outdoor plans will be impacted in a small percentage of the Triangle.

A cool front will stall to our north across Virginia tomorrow and Tuesday, while an upper trough currently over the eastern Gulf of Mexico heads north into Georgia and then across the Carolinas. This will increase moisture across the Triangle which will lead to a better chance of a shower or thunderstorm during the afternoon or evenings.

Otherwise, both tomorrow and Tuesday will be warm and rather humid with clouds and sun each day. The cool front will sink farther south on Wednesday and then shift into the Triangle on Thursday. The warm and humid conditions will continue both days along with a shower or thunderstorm around, mainly each afternoon or evening.

Have a great day!
