We wound up with an impressive temperatures spread across the region by late yesterday afternoon with mid to upper 80s around the Charlotte region and mid 70s in the Triad...also 60s all day in northeastern North Carolina.
Today will be warm and muggy for everybody across our region with highs up into the upper 80s....even a few lower 90s in spots. As a cold front inches closer, I expect some storms to fire in the mountains and foothills this afternoon, and then those showers and storms will likely develop in scattered fashion into the Piedmont late this afternoon into this evening.
That next cold front will stall out this weekend in the Carolinas. Look for scattered shower and storm chances both weekend days. On Sunday, it might wind up being dry north of I-40, but it is too close to call.
All of the region will likely see rain and storms Monday into Tuesday as our next system rolls through. That time frame still holds the most potential for widespread, beneficial rains.
Wednesday through Friday next week are looking cooler, less muggy, and primarily dry.
