Hit or Miss PM Showers & Storms

Warm, humid air is flowing into the Southern Appalachians around sprawling high pressure anchored in the Atlantic but extending into the Southeast. Tropical Storm Colin moves northeast along the NC Coast tonight with no direct effect on our weather (other than helping to pump humid air into Western NC). Widely scattered showers and storms settle after sunset. Sunday promises to have greater PM storm coverage than today, but Independence Day will have less.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure has "assumed the position" in the Atlantic and extends influence into the Southeast. Tropical Storm Colin formed Saturday morning along the South Carolina Coast. It will move northeast along the SC and NC Coast through Sunday, enhancing the maritime flow into Western North Carolina. A front is edging into the Central Appalachians from the northwest and will be close to us Sunday before being repelled back to the north next week. No other front affects our weather until at least next weekend (but even that is questionable). A warm, humid flow from the south is the dominate driver in our weather.

So... It's all about daytime heating producing hit or miss afternoon showers and storms for the foreseeable future. We need the rain. Sunday, may have increased coverage thanks to the front just to our north. Monday appears to have less.
