I am working the Saturday shift at the big 14 today, so I figured I would post up a quick discussion.....
The 'wedge' scenario is in play today, and the result is lots of clouds and cooler temperatures. Highs today should only be in the mid to upper 80s around the region.
Through the southern and western Piedmont into the foothills, the chance of occasional showers and storms today is pretty high. We are in a moisture-packed environment, so some locally heavy rain will be possible.
Tomorrow, I will maintain the risk of a few showers and storms, and it will be a little warmer with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s.
Our next cold front will get close enough to us to being storm chances next week. The front will be a slow mover, and that will mean several days of increased storm chances. Right now, the mid-week period looks to feature the most significant coverage of showers and storms.
