Storm system crawling our way...

>> Wednesday, May 25, 2011

First of all, some impressively-hot high temps in eastern parts of the region yesterday, including...

Fayetteville: 98
Lumberton: 98
Wilmington: 97
Erwin: 97
Laurinburg: 97
Manteo: 92

Also, there were some pretty mean storms in northern NC and southern VA, and numerous severe weather warnings were required.

At the same time, another huge severe weather outbreak was unfolding in the Plains, and that continued overnight. Unfortunately, it was another deadly tornado day and night.

Today, the big severe weather threat is in the Mississippi Valley region....and again, some strong tornadoes could be involved.

For our region, while a few isolated storms are possible, I expect most spots to remain dry with highs in the low to mid 90s...maybe some upper 90s again in eastern NC.

Our best shot at showers and storms will come Friday as that system, albeit in a weakened state, moves in.

A few storms could linger Saturday, but then I expect mostly dry weather Sunday and Monday with highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s.

It still looks like the heat will really crank for a while next week in much of the central and eastern US.

This early season heat is ok, but maybe a little bit much. Do you foresee any signs of cool down in the next few weeks?

Early to mid next week will be pretty hot in our region, but there are signs of a northwest flow aloft developing by the end of next week...that would mean a break in the heat.
