Forecast Last Updated at Friday, September 21, 2018 at 11:28AM

Warm Friday; Front Inbound

Unseasonably warm temperatures continue today. It's the nicest day we'll have until the end of summer... Well, it is the last full day of summer, but the weather is terrific regardless. We have a barely worth mentioning chance of stray shower late this afternoon. A front is inbound this weekend; it stalls just to our south early next week. As a result scattered afternoon thundershowers are expected Saturday afternoon; then clouds with occasional light rain persists early next week. Monday will be the coolest day of the set.

Forecast Discussion

Damage from Florence in SE NC is tremendous. It will take months, if not a year for many locations to recover. It's generally the same area that was hit so hard by Matthew two years ago. For several years, I have relied on Charity Navigator to research worthy charities to help in situations like this. Please join me in donating to relief efforts in the wake of Hurricane Florence.

Warm, pleasant weather dominated the last three days; Friday continues the winning streak. A stray late-day shower is a very slight possibility (even less coverage than Thursday).

Pleasant weather continues through Saturday morning, but a front arrives from the north Saturday night, stalling just to our south Sunday and Monday. Expect scattered thundershowers Saturday afternoon and evening. Sunday and Monday will be cooler with clouds and occasional light rain. Monday is the coolest day of this forecast.

The front lifts north and fades off the map Tuesday before the next front arrives from the northwest late Wednesday. Temperatures will be slightly warmer Tuesday and Wednesday. Stray, light showers remain possible Tuesday; then scattered showers and thundershowers develop Wednesday. Front #2 also stalls just to our south keeping scattered showers and thundershowers for Thursday.
