More warmth today....showers and storms tomorrow...

>> Thursday, May 26, 2011

It was another pretty hot day across the region Wednesday, and again, the hottest temps were in the Sandhills and Coastal parts of the region.

Some select high temps...

Erwin: 99
Lumberton: 98
Fayetteville: 98
Laurinburg: 98
Wilmington: 97
Ft. Bragg: 97

Highs today will again warm into the low to mid 90s in many spots...maybe just shy of that in the Triad region.

It was indeed a big severe weather outbreak yesterday in the Ohio and Mississippi Valley areas. Here is the storm report map.
That system continues to crawl our way, weakening as it does so. Some storms are possible this afternoon in the mountains and western Upstate, but for the NC Piedmont, the chance of showers and storms should mainly arrive this evening and tonight with the bulk of the activity taking place tomorrow.

A few severe storms are possible with this system, but it will not be the same animal it was earlier in the week.

For the Memorial Day weekend, a few storms can't be ruled out Saturday and Sunday, but most spots will likely be dry. Highs by Sunday and Monday will return to the upper 80s and lower 90s.

I still expect some pretty hot weather through mid-week next week, but there are indications that the big ridge might shift to the western US by the end of the week, meaning a northwest flow here.
