A lovely day to spend outside.

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- Other than for some clouds at times today, it will be gorgeous with a good deal of sunshine as temperatures rebound into the upper 70s. A couple of disturbances will then parade by the area tonight into early Sunday night, but with our air mass being so dry with little to no last minute influx of Gulf moisture, most places miss out on an isolated shower tonight, as well as on Sunday. Then, with a weak front racing through the area Sunday night, our best chance of a shower is early, and even that could be north and east of the Triangle.

Behind this boundary, a warm day Monday with sunshine. As a trough tries to deepen across the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley during the middle of next week, that will lead to a gradual cooling of the atmosphere. Further, with high pressure trying to nose its way into the Great Lakes by Wednesday, it should aid in drawing down some cool, dry air into the region, so that temperatures could sneak into the upper 40 Tuesday night.

After that, our weather will be all about the Tropics, and the future of what is now Tropical Storm Ian in the south-central Caribbean. High clouds well advance of what should by then be a hurricane look to advance into our area starting Wednesday, and rain is possible as early as Thursday night and Friday. It remains too early to be certain of the potential impacts from that storm on our region so far in advance, but it does look to play a significant role in our weather late next week!

Have a great weekend!
