Cooler air is here, and here to stay for at least a few more days. This push of cool air is quite rare for the month of July, and is making it feel more like mid-September rather than what is typically the warmest time of the year for North Carolina.
The Jet Stream has plunged southward into the Carolinas. This is allowing cool, low humidity air to plunge into the Tar Heel State. We'll see our low dew points continue today, tomorrow and into early Thursday before changes take hold.
More moisture will begin to return to our forecast by Friday. This will increase clouds, and eventually bring back the chance of rain for Friday into the weekend. Scattered showers and even thunderstorms are a good bet those days. While it will be humid, temperatures will be held back thanks to the extra clouds and showers.
The normal high is 88, and the normal low is 69.
