Daily Forecast

WEATHER SUMMARY: There may be an isolated evening shower or thunderstorm to cool us off, otherwise look for quiet and warm weather tonight into tomorrow morning. As a cold front approaches the area Friday afternoon and Friday night, we’ll see more clouds and rain chances will be on the increase… especially Friday night into the weekend. The front will also provide some relief from the heat. Rain chances will start to drop back to seasonable chances early next week.

Tonight: Isolated showers or thunderstorms early… otherwise scattered clouds, warm and muggy. Lows in the mid to upper 70s. Winds southwest at 5-10 mph.

Friday: Slightly better rain chances arrive… especially Friday night… as a cold front pushes into North Carolina from the north. Look for a few afternoon showers and thunderstorms developing with highs around 90… except mid to upper 80s on the Atlantic shore.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy with showers and thunderstorms likely. Not as warm with highs in the low to mid 80s.

– Chief Meteorologist Lee Haywood
