  • Low clouds/fog continues tonight for some
  • Still cloudy Monday
  • Warm, dry weather for the week ahead

MONDAY

The wedge will likely cling on for one more day allowing for some early fog and low clouds in parts of our area. Regardless, highs will warm into the 70s in many areas.

Mostly cloudy along Blue Ridge/Piedmont.

THIS WEEK

Finally the wedge breaks Tuesday as high pressure builds from the Gulf of Mexico to the north. This will bring more sunshine and much warmer weather all week long. Highs will run well above average in the upper 70s to even mid 80s. Rain chances will be slim until a weekend front.

By the weekend a fall front will likely move in. Timing is still up in the air, but the best chance of rain will come Friday night into Saturday with cool, crisp air making a return Sunday.

Front could bring weekend rain followed by the return of fall air.

TROPICS

We are watching a disturbance off the east coast; although development is low. The NHC continues to monitor it this weekend, but it’s expect to continue to move away from the US out to sea.

Interestingly enough, there is only one more available name left on the 2021 list. This will likely be the second year in a row we have used up all the names on the regular season list.
