Lower humidity before heat and humidity crank back up...

StormTracker Morning Forecast…

Today: Early morning showers will come to an end as a cold front and a parent low pressure drift to our north and east. Clearing skies today, leaving us mostly sunny this afternoon. Winds will be out of the northwest between 5 and 10 mph with gusts up to 20 mph. It will be less humid with highs in the low and mid 80s.

Tonight: Mainly clear and quiet with lows in the low and mid 60s.

Tuesday: Mostly sunny to partly cloudy with highs in the mid 80s. Afternoon showers and isolated storms are possible as another front approaches from the north. Rain chance is around 20%.

Wednesday: A stalled front and a passing disturbance will increase our rain chances to around 40%. In fact, rain chances will remain elevated through Memorial Day Weekend thanks to passing disturbances, along with heat and moisture in place – it won’t be a washout. Highs in the mid 80s. Overight temperatures in the 60s and 70s.

Thursday: Rain chances are around 30%. Highs in the mid and upper 80s. Overnight temperatures around 70.

Friday: Rain chances will be around 30% as the front remains stalled out. Highs in the upper 80s to around 90. Overnight temperatures around 70.

Weekend: Rain chances remain slightly elevated to around 30-40% on Saturday. High temperature near 90. Overnight temperatures around 71. Rain chance starts to trim back down to around 20-30% as the front starts to wash out by the end of the weekend. High temperature near 90. Overnight temperatures around 71.

Memorial Day: Hot and humid with rain chances sitting around 20%. High near 90.

Tropics: Tropical Storm Arthur is moving to the north-northeast. A Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect for North Carolina’s coast as it is expected to bring some tropical storm-force wind and bouts of heavy rain to the coast – especially the Outer Banks. This will not impact the Gulf of Mexico. Other than Arthur, the tropics remain quiet. Hurricane season officially begins on June 1st.
