We're firmly back into the heat and humidity here in the Triad. Temperatures are on the rise through the rest of the week which will be a hot one, and mainly dry one across the Piedmont.
A good deal of moisture remains parked over Eastern North Carolina along a stationary front. Here in the Piedmont, our humidity has increased, but any organized rain showers have not headed our way. While we stay dry tonight we'll start to watch a cold front approaching us from the north.
This front is a weak one, so as it slides toward us on Tuesday it won't bring many showers or storms with it. We'll expect a lot of sunshine early on Tuesday with temperatures quickly warming into the 90s. Highs will soar into the mid 90s, with a bit of humidity. By the late afternoon and evening at least a few showers or storms are possible, but the chance is only about 20%.
Our best chances for rain this week will come on Thursday and Friday as a system approaches us from the west. Still though, our storms will be hit or miss with many of us missing out on the needed rainfall.
The normal high is 87, and the normal low is 69.
