A warm front is lifting north of the region today, and we are now back into a muggier airmass. Highs today will warm into the mid to upper 80s in most Piedmont locations, and we will have a considerable amounts of clouds. We will also have the chance of a few showers and storms today into portions of tonight as a cold front approaches from the northwest. A few storms could produce some damaging wind gusts.
Today will also be relatively breezy overall with southwest winds possibly gusting over 25mph or so at times.
Tomorrow, that cold front will push into northern South Carolina. This will leave most of North Carolina with a dry forecast, although the southern sections of the state could see a few showers or storms. The better chances tomorrow will be in South Carolina. It will be a fairly hot Thursday with highs close to 90.
The heat and humidity will build as we head into the upcoming weekend. Highs will approach the mid 90s at times over the weekend, and morning lows will only be in the low to mid 70s. There will be some chance of a few afternoon storms as well.
It appears another cold front will drop in next week bringing some relief from the heat and humidity by Tuesday and Wednesday.
Housekeeping note here...I am taking a little bit of time off, and I will be out of the weather office for the next several days. The next full discussion and video will likely not be posted until early Tuesday morning. However, I might occasionally throw something up on my twitter feed @eastwx , but overall, I will use these days to unplug from technology a bit and recharge the batteries.
Everyone have a great weekend!
