High pressure will remain in control across the region today with a hot and humid afternoon and lots of sunshine.

After a clear, but muggy night again tonight, we will await the arrival of a strong cold front that reaches the Triangle late Wednesday into Wednesday night.

Ahead of the front, Wednesday will be another hot and humid day, but with more clouds around.

A few showers and thunderstorms will occur any time in the afternoon, but will become more widespread during the overnight hours. With an unstable atmosphere and ample low-level moisture, any thunderstorm can be locally strong to severe with torrential downpours and damaging wind gusts. Because of this, the SPC has put us in a risk for severe weather.

The front will hang around just to our east on Thursday and as a result, it will not be nearly as hot but still humid with a leftover shower or thunderstorm through midday.

Building high pressure from the northwest will then bring cooler, and dry, air for Friday and the weekend with ample sunshine and low humidity. Temperatures will be below average in the 80s, instead of the 90s.

Have a great Tuesday!
