Scattered Showers Today

The forecast is rather straightforward in the near-term as a series of upper-level impulses cross the region. This will help support the development of showers and thunderstorms this afternoon across central North Carolina. Severe weather is not anticipated today, owing to weak winds in the upper reaches of the atmosphere.

That could change tomorrow, however, as a cold front gets pulled into the area and winds aloft strengthen. As such, damaging wind gusts are possible in addition to flooding downpours from the more intense thunderstorms late tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow evening. Hail is also possible with the strongest storms.

Thunderstorm will move out later as the front pushes away to the east.

Friday looks to be a nice day with lower humidity and temperatures near average. Drier weather persists into Saturday.

Another upper-level disturbance will arrive Sunday and increase the potential for a thunderstorm in the afternoon, but most areas will be dry.

Seasonably hot and humid weather will be the rule early next week.

Have a great Hump Day!
