  • Hit-or-miss showers and storms taper off tonight
  • Hot & humid to begin the work week
  • Big changes are in store late week

NEXT WEEK

Our Monday starts off dry, but some spotty storms will develop during the afternoon and the evening. Most of the storms will form west of the Blue Ridge, but a stray storm is possible east. Main threats will be frequent lightning and heavy downpours.

Best placement for the development of showers and storms will be in the mountains.

The stormy, hot, and humid pattern looks to linger until the middle of next week as a cold front slowly approaches. Looks like the front will cross through sometime late Wednesday making that the wettest day next week.

The frontal passage is followed by high pressure that is forecast to bring us a drier pattern into next weekend.

Staying wet for most of our week, but by Friday high pressure brings drier conditions.

Behind the cold front we are expecting a dip in both high and low temperatures as a northwesterly flow sets the stage. Plus we will see a drop in our dew points. Get ready for some refreshing air as we say goodbye to the humidity starting on Friday!

TRACKING THE TROPICS

The NHC has a 40% chance for a storm to form within the next 5 days. A Tropical Depression may form by the middle of next week. Next name on the list is Danielle.
