A cold front continues to push south of the region, and some cooler, drier air is settling in. Humidity values will be noticeably lower as today unfolds, and we will see lots of sunshine with highs in the upper 80s for the Triad and lower 90s for the Charlotte and Triangle regions.
A pleasant night is on tap tonight with lows in the 60s. I still think some of the higher elevations in the mountains could wind up in the 50s tonight.
The weekend forecast is a complex one. Winds will switch around out of the southeast tomorrow, and moisture will begin to return. I anticipate lots of clouds tomorrow, and a chance of a few showers or a storm or two will return tomorrow afternoon. However, better rain chances will likely be with us Saturday night into Sunday. Highs this weekend will likely be in the mid to upper 80s.
Highs return to the 90s next work week with lows in the 70s once again. Each day will feature the chance of a few PM storms. The chances might get better again toward the end of the work week as another front approaches.
