Above is today's edition of the Carolina Weather Video. Some showers trying to develop into the Piedmont this morning from the mountains. Then we will have some more scattered storms fire this afternoon as a cold front gets a little closer to the area. Highs today should be fairly close to 90.
Tomorrow looks quite unsettled. A cold front will pull through the area, and that will likely give us a nice round of showers and storms.
A few strong to severe storms are possible today and tomorrow....tomorrow probably being the greatest chance.
Cooler and drier air will settle in for the weekend. While I can't completely rule out an isolated shower Saturday or Sunday, I think most of us get by with dry conditions and highs only in the mid 80s at best.
Next week, it looks like tropical moisture will surge in here from the Atlantic, and that will likely lead to good shower and storm chances at times next work week.
One computer model, the Canadian, is up to its antics again in developing a tropical system near the Bahamas early in the week then lifting it up just off the Carolina coast. That is an outlying solution, but we will keep an eye on it.
This will be the last regular blog posting for a while. I am out of town this weekend, and then I will be over in Raleigh Tuesday and Wednesday next week for some training regarding our graphics system.
I might check in from time to time, especially on the twitter feed. It is embedded on the right.
Enjoy your weekend!
