This morning we had more heavy rain during the early commute. Showers have come and gone since before dawn this morning. There were even some isolated thunderstorms in a few locations.
The stationary front is still over our region, but it is just a bit farther south than yesterday.
The front will meander around again today. It will create more occasional rain showers through the early afternoon. However, some drier air in the mid-upper levels of the atmosphere will push in from the west during the afternoon. This should taper off the rain showers to isolated. High temps will be in the low-mid 60s in the metro. There will be a couple of 70s over North Carolina, and highs will be in the upper 50s north of the metro. There’s a little wiggle room on that by the way as winds will be variable at 5-10mph.
Tomorrow the front should sink a little more south of the region. We’ll have partly cloudy skies with only a couple of stray showers possible in the afternoon. Highs will be near 60. We’ll be a little warmer on Thursday. There will be some rain showers Wednesday night, but a couple could linger into early Thursday morning. Otherwise Thursday should be dry and mild. Highs will be in the 60s. Then we’ll have some colder/drier air rushing in on Friday. Highs will drop to the upper 40s. That will be back to reality and back closer to average. We’ll warm up a little on Saturday with some pm showers. Highs will be n the upper 50s. Then we’ll cool down on Sunday. High temps will be in the 40s. From Sunday onward I think we’ll have a colder pattern develop for a while. I’m not sure if this is the long-term switch-flip that I’ve been advertising, but it will definitely be a colder/drier stretch. Stay tuned for updates!
