Some shower and storm chances today...

>> Wednesday, June 09, 2010

A warm front is lifting north of the region today, and we are now back into a muggier airmass. Highs today will warm into the mid to upper 80s in most Piedmont locations, and we will have a considerable amounts of clouds. We will also have the chance of a few showers and storms today into portions of tonight as a cold front approaches from the northwest. A few storms could produce some damaging wind gusts.

Today will also be relatively breezy overall with southwest winds possibly gusting over 25mph or so at times.

Tomorrow, that cold front will push into northern South Carolina. This will leave most of North Carolina with a dry forecast, although the southern sections of the state could see a few showers or storms. The better chances tomorrow will be in South Carolina. It will be a fairly hot Thursday with highs close to 90.

The heat and humidity will build as we head into the upcoming weekend. Highs will approach the mid 90s at times over the weekend, and morning lows will only be in the low to mid 70s. There will be some chance of a few afternoon storms as well.

It appears another cold front will drop in next week bringing some relief from the heat and humidity by Tuesday and Wednesday.

Housekeeping note here...I am taking a little bit of time off, and I will be out of the weather office for the next several days. The next full discussion and video will likely not be posted until early Tuesday morning. However, I might occasionally throw something up on my twitter feed @eastwx , but overall, I will use these days to unplug from technology a bit and recharge the batteries.

Everyone have a great weekend!


One more day with low humidity...

>> Tuesday, June 08, 2010

If you don't like the warmth and the mugginess, enjoy today. Our Tuesday will indeed be delightful with lots of sun and highs in the low to mid 80s. Humidity values will remain on the low side again today.

However, changes are coming. A warm front will begin to lift through tonight, and that warm front will usher us back into a muggier and warmer regime once again. Highs tomorrow will warm into the upper 80s to near 90, and a few afternoon storms will be possible. Tomorrow will actually be quite breezy as well.

Look for highs to remain at least in the lower 90s for much of the period from Thursday into early next week. In fact, it looks extremely muggy again by the weekend, and many highs could wind up into the mid 90s to boot. A few storms will be possible over the weekend, but the bigger story will likely be the heat.


A nice break from the heat and humidity...

>> Monday, June 07, 2010

If you are tired of the early-season heat and humidity, take heart....a break has arrived! Today and tomorrow will be delightful days with lots of sunshine, highs in the low to at most mid 80s, and much, much lower humidity levels. Lows tonight will drop into the lower 60s for most....even some upper 50s can't be ruled out in the traditionally cooler spots.

Our next storm system will begin to approach Wednesday, and along with it will come the chance of some scattered storms again. Another cold front will then slowly push south of the area Thursday, and most of the region should return to dry conditions Friday and Saturday with highs in the upper 80s to some lower 90s.
