This morning a cool front was slowly sinking south through the region. It created a pocket of rain showers that hit the metro early.
The front has briefly stalled, but it will pick up some speed later this morning into the afternoon.
As the front drops south we’ll develop a northerly breeze. It will run at about 8-12mph. There might be a stray shower this afternoon over the Southside or North Carolina, but it’s a low chance. High temps will be in the upper 70s to low 80s. It will feel pretty nice out. Dew points will steadily drop through the afternoon to the 50s. We’ll be cool tonight with lows in the low 60s. There will be a few clouds with a stray shower or two. Then tomorrow we’ll be dry all day. Skies will be partly cloudy. High temps will be in the mid-upper 70s. We’ll have a light northeast wind. It will be an awesome weather day! We’ll be dry and warm on Friday with highs near 80. By Saturday we’ll heat up, and the humidity will increase. High temps will be in the upper 80s. We may hit close to 90 degrees. There may be some isolated pm showers. We’ll have more clouds and scattered showers on Sunday. Highs will be in the 80s. We’ll cool down a little into early next week.
In world news…I was sifting through my daily news/weather articles, and I found one on “Ocean” heat waves. Apparently, they are becoming more common. These have affects on world weather patterns. I mentioned the warm blob over the northern Pacific ocean in a previous weather blog. Here is the article with more information: Ocean Heat Waves.
