There has been a little light rain in parts of the southern Piedmont this morning, and there will be the chance of a few isolated showers or storms this afternoon. Otherwise, the big weather story is the warming trend.
The significant warming trend will continue to unfold for us over the weekend. Highs today will be in the lower 80s, then mid to maybe upper 80s tomorrow and upper 80s to near 90 Sunday. Saturday should be completely dry, but a few afternoon storms are possible Sunday.
It will be down-right Summer-like for much of next week with lots of highs in the lower 90s and lows in the 60s. It will be relatively humid as well, and I can't rule out one or two pop-up storms on a daily basis. Better storm chances will likely hold off until late Thursday or Friday.
