Thursday’s First Warning Forecast: A soggy stretch on the way

Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Nice today but more rain on the way… A stationary front continues to linger to our south, keeping most of the clouds and rain in North Carolina. We will see another nice mix of sun and clouds today with highs returning to the low 80s. An isolated shower is possible for areas close to the Albemarle Sound but most areas will stay dry today.

 

The stationary front will lift north and an area of low pressure will build in on Friday. We will see mostly cloudy skies tomorrow with scattered showers and storms. Rain chances will increase for the afternoon and evening hours. As winds shift to the south, temperatures will warm up. Highs will reach the low to mid 80s on Friday and the mid to upper 80s this weekend. Mostly cloudy skies with scattered showers and storms will continue this weekend as a cold front moves in and stalls out.

 

Today: Partly Cloudy, Stray Showers (10%). Highs in the low 80s. Winds: NE/E 5-10

Tonight: Partly to Mostly Cloudy, Isolated Showers (20%). Lows near 70. Winds: E/SE 5-10

Tomorrow: Mostly Cloudy, Scattered Showers/Storms (50%). Highs in the low 80s. Winds: SE 5-10
