Charlie’s Forecast: Comfortable conditions sticking around today
Highs in the upper 70s will feature low humidity and light winds
Sunday: Mostly sunny with highs near 78°. Winds out of the northeast at 5 to 10 mph.
Sunday Night: Partly to mostly clear skies. Lows near 49°. Calm winds.
Monday: Partly cloudy with isolated showers. Rain chance 20%. Highs near 80°.
A few more clouds will be present in Eastern NC skies as we wrap up the weekend, however we are still classifying it as a partly to mostly sunny day. Highs will hit the upper 70s, a few degrees warmer than what we saw Saturday. Winds will be light out of the northeast through most of the day. Humidity will be low, but the clock will be ticking down towards the return of the humidity (expected this coming week).
Monday & Tuesday
The area of low pressure that has poured rain over the Midwest will see its warm front extend over parts of VA and NC. The rain showers will try to reach us here in the East, but coverage will be extremely limited and rainfall amounts will range between a trace to a quarter of an inch (for those who see the rain). Temperatures will continue to climb as the warm front is set to bring hot and humid air to the region. Highs will reach the low 80s with humidity climbing Tuesday.
Wednesday, Thursday & Friday
We’ll get a couple of days to get used to the humidity before the classic afternoon/evening heat generated storms arrive. Highs will hang in the mid 80s from Wednesday through Friday with overnight lows hovering near the low to mid 60s. The expected weekend return of heat generated storms will come at a good time as all of Eastern NC has been quite dry over the last 30 days. According to the South Eastern Regional Climate Center, we saw only 0.5″ to 4″ for all counties along and east of I-95.
