Get used to the heat and humidity....

>> Tuesday, May 24, 2011

Well, looks like we have kind of settled into this pattern for a while. Around the I-85 corridor, high clouds held temps down a bit yesterday, but I don't expect that today, and most highs should top 90 degrees. Raleigh topped 90 yesterday, and in the Sandhills, highs warmed into the mid 90s. Highs will remain in the low to in some spots mid 90s through Thursday.

Interesting to note a little MCV (mesoscale convective vortex) over eastern Arkansas this morning. It if survives, that would move into the Carolinas this afternoon. All in all, I expect a few afternoon storms, and while most spots will likely remain dry, the storms that do form will pack a punch with some gusty winds, hail, and lots of lightning.

A few PM storms remain possible tomorrow and Thursday, then look for a better coverage of storms for Friday.

See the video below for details about the 'high' risk of severe weather to our west today. I also discuss our weather ahead, including a possible continuation of the hot and humid pattern for much of next week.
