Warm and muggy again Friday

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- It will remain on the unsettled side of things across the Triangle thanks to a stalled front across the western half of the state. Scattered showers and storms are possible through the remainder of the evening. Some of those storms could produce localized flooding and gusty winds.

We'll see similar weather Friday. Highs will climb to near 90 degrees, and the stalled front nearby could help to spark a few storms during the afternoon.


Saturday, we'll still have the stalled boundary nearby and that could lead to a shower or thunderstorm in some spots, mainly in the afternoon and evening with the heating of the day. With drier air trying to expand east, the best chance for anything looks to be from the Triangle on east.

A weak area of high pressure will help push this boundary near or just offshore Sunday. There can still be the typical afternoon/evening pop-up thunderstorm, again mainly to the east, but certainly not looking at a washout of a weekend.

In the long range, we will be tracking a weak trough passing by north of the area on Monday and a front approaching from the northwest later Tuesday that seems to get hung up again around the area for midweek and likely leading to an uptick in shower and thunderstorm coverage. Temperatures for much of the upcoming week will be within a couple degrees of normal. Today marks the first day that we start to see our average high temperatures falling back down dropping from our peak average high of 90 to 89 degrees.


Have a great evening!
