A moist flow of air continues across North Carolina. Still, we are seeing limited shower and thunderstorm activity with no triggers. Triggers are things like cold fronts, upper disturbances, hot temperatures, etc. We do expect to see a few showers into early tonight. On Wednesday we do get one of these triggers. Temperatures should climb to near 90 and this should be enough for a few thunderstorms along with more showers. On Thursday a cold front will move our way and that will boost our chances and coverage as well.
Behind the cold front, we expect drier air to return on Friday and last into the weekend. Temperatures will slip a few degrees on Friday back to the mid 80s and then rebound to near 90 over the weekend. There may be a shower or thunderstorm on Sunday afternoon or evening. Otherwise, the weekend looks dry in the Piedmont.
Early next week another cold front heads our way. This will bring a good chance for showers and thunderstorms on Monday. Behind this front we should cool back to the mid 80s with lower humidity on Tuesday and Wednesday.
