Weather Summary:

A stationary front is stalled across the NC/SC boarder and will remain to our south. A weak high pressure system will build in from the north and control our weather over the weekend. A much stronger cold front will arrive on Monday bringing with it unseasonably cooler than normal air beginning Tuesday.

This afternoon we will remain under a partly cloudy sky with less humid air. Temperatures will remain in the low 80s this afternoon into the evening hours. Tonight will be partly cloudy and comfortable with a low temperature of 68. Saturday and Sunday will be partly cloudy and hot with a high temperature of 90 on Saturday, and 94 on Sunday. Drier air will remain in place with a 20% chance of an isolated thunderstorm for the Piedmont on Sunday, with a slightly better chance for the mountain and foothills on Sunday evening and overnight hours.

The next front will arrive on Monday providing a 30% chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms. Any storms that develop could potentially be on the strong to severe side. The primary severe threats of any storms will be damaging winds and hail. The high on Monday will be 89. Behind the front, much cooler and drier air will move into the Piedmont and much of the East Coast starting Tuesday. Tuesday through Thursday, high temperatures will remain in the low 80s and overnight lows will be near 60.

Our normal high is 88, and our normal low is 69.
