A little less humidity today...

>> Thursday, June 17, 2010

Some slightly drier air is settling into the region from the north today, and that will really squelch the rain chances for the mountains and piedmont. For the piedmont, look for highs in the lower 90s with lots of sunshine, and you will likely be able to notice a drop in the humidity levels today compared to recent days. The best chance of seeing a storm today will be from right along the NC coast into portions of South Carolina.

Friday's forecast looks mainly dry with highs close to 90 for the NC piedmont with highs in the upper 80s to near 90.

I will maintain the chance of a few storms Saturday with highs close to 90. Sunday looks a bit hotter with low to mid 90s for highs.

Some model disagreement comes into play next week in exactly where the center of an upper level ridge will set up. So, the confidence of timing out any increases in rain chances next week is pretty low at this point. Generally speaking, look for highs in the lower 90s and at least a limited chance of a few PM storms.

I was surprised yesterday around early afternoon. It seemed like Gaston County (my area) was the only place in NC that received rain during that time, not to mention that we even had a couple of T-storms. So weird.

Killer....yep, that area was very close to the stalled front. That created just enough lift for a few showers and storms.
