Same Ol Song and Dance
Widely scattered thunderstorms will continue through sunset; primarily over eastern Watauga and Ashe counties and over Allegheny county.
We remain warm and humid for the next week with chances for afternoon storms each day. Monday and Thursday look to have the least amount of afternoon storm coverage. Temperatures will be slightly above average through the next week.

Monday, we are sandwiched in between a stalled front to our south and one to our north and are a little drier than Sunday. The stalled front to our south moves north a little and increases the chances of afternoon storms on Tuesday. Low pressure rides along the front to our south Tuesday and Wednesday keeping the afternoon storm threat alive.
Drier air works in for Thursday so there will be less coverage of afternoon showers and thundershowers. A cold front moves close to western NC late in the week increasing the coverage of afternoon rain and storms. Temperatures will be slightly above average each day.
