  • Isolated to scattered storms possible through Sunday evening
  • High climb into the start of the week
  • Best chances of rain expected for the end of the week

SUNDAY EVENING

Some isolated activity developed Sunday afternoon and has lingering into this evening. Watch for heavy downpours and localized flooding from the slow-moving storms. The rest of the night looks quiet with mostly clear skies and areas of fog where it rained. Lows will fall into the 60s to near 70.

MONDAY - WEDNESDAY

The first half of the week looks to be the warmest days as high pressure continues to build. There is a chance of an isolated storm or two on Monday afternoon. Highs will reach the mid and upper 80s with areas along and east of the Blue Ridge back into the lower 90s.

Highs climb into the 80s and 90s with few chances of rain.

By Wednesday we will be watching a slow moving front to our northwest. At this time this looks to bring our best rain chances for the end of the week.

THU-FRI-SAT

As the high pressure system in the Atlantic slides away from the US, our rain chances will increase with an approaching front. Expect stormy conditions beginning Thursday and possibly lingering into the July 4th weekend. Timing and location still remains uncertain, but flooding and severe weather chances will increase with this set-up.

Heavy showers and storms likely late in the week thanks to an approaching front.

TROPICS

The tropics continue to to remain active. Another cluster of storms will be something to watch in the middle of the Atlantic in the next few days. At this time, the chances of this forming into a tropical storm are not high, but many models are showing rainfall impacting states to our south. We will continue to monitor this system and the other system in the Eastern Atlantic.

Two disturbances to watch including one off the the SE Coast.
