The 80s Return Tuesday

High pressure centered over coastal South Carolina will bring a clear and pleasantly cool night tonight with low temperatures close to 50.
Another very nice day is on tap for tomorrow with even warmer afternoon readings than today. Most places will see afternoon readings warming into the lower 80s. This high pressure area will slowly move eastward tomorrow night and Wednesday. This will help bring a returning flow of moist air back into central North Carolina Wednesday and Thursday. This moisture will lead to a few more clouds on Wednesday, but afternoon high temperatures should still reach the lower 80s.

Meanwhile, a storm system over Iowa is causing a large area of rain over the western Great Lakes and Upper Midwest. A southwest-trailing cold front will move east and south as this surface storm moves eastward. This front should move into southern Virginia and perhaps into northern-most North Carolina late Wednesday afternoon. It might also bring a shower or thunderstorm to a few spots over northern most North Carolina Wednesday evening.

This weak frontal boundary is expected to stall near the Virginia-North Carolina border Wednesday night and Thursday morning. This boundary is expected to fall apart during Thursday.

A storm system forming over Texas will track northeast out of Texas Thursday and move into the eastern Gulf of Mexico during Friday. A cold front moving into the Great Lakes on Thursday will link up with this Gulf storm system. This cold front will move through central North Carolina during Friday and Friday evening with some showers and thunderstorms.

This overall storm system is expected to move east and south out of central North Carolina later Friday night. In the wake of this system, a dry and seasonable weather pattern will set up this coming weekend across the region.
Have a great evening!
