Sunny & Warm

The repeat button has been pressed... a cool start with patchy morning fog, tons of daytime sunshine, and comfortably low humidity levels. About the only noticeable difference from yesterday is a slightly warmer finish. A diffuse front with very little moisture to work with arrives tomorrow. It hangs around long enough for an isolated late day shower or storm with most of us staying dry. That is basically the story, most of us stay dry until Sunday when more organized wet weather returns.

Forecast Discussion

On the weather map today a front stretches from the interior Northeast southwest to the Central Plains. High pressure is situated overhead and Cristobal will pass in the open waters between NC and Bermuda. In short form, we expect another beautiful afternoon with a slightly warmer finish today.

The front drops south tonight once Cristobal makes a sharper curve towards the northeast away from the U.S. mainland. The front spends Thursday stalled across NC, then lifts north as a warm front Friday as it runs into a strengthening upper ridge over the Southeast. With very little moisture to work with given the dry airmass in place we are not expecting anything more than isolated afternoon or evening showers and storms. The takeaway through Saturday is for most of us to stay dry.

Once into the latter half of the weekend a deep southwesterly flow becomes established bringing with it plenty of Gulf moisture. While we are void of any frontal passages an upper disturbance kicks off scattered showers and storms Sunday afternoon and evening. The influx of moisture stays in place early next and it is back to a summer theme of scattered to widely scattered late day showers and storms.
