A cold front will move into warm and moist air across eastern Carolina causing showers and thunderstorms into Wednesday. The main threat from the storms will be heavy rainfall. The heavy rain may cause some localized flooding due to the slow moving storms. The cold front will finally wash out by Wednesday afternoon with mostly to partly sunny skies on tap for Thursday through the weekend. Temperatures will hang near or just under 90° for the remainder of the week. Relative humidity levels will drop a bit by Thursday and Friday.
There is little change in the forecast for the tropical season. There is a lull in activity at the moment. We may see a couple of storms develop in July but they typically stay well to our south or in the Gulf of Mexico. I expect a major pickup in activity once we get to the second to third week of August and continue into October. Of course, it is too early to know how many will develop or whether any of them will impact our area. For now we'll keep a watchful eye.
