A disturbance is approaching from the south and west, and this will bring some showers to the area this evening. Much of the lightning has been staying in North Carolina, so our threat for seeing thunderstorms is fairly low. Locally heavy rainfall and some gusty winds are possible. There will be some breaks in spots, so not all areas will have prolonged periods of rain. The chance of showers and isolated storms will linger until after midnight. It will be humid tonight with lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s.
Skies will be variably cloudy on Saturday. There is the chance of a shower in the morning, but scattered storms will be more likely in the afternoon and evening. It will stay humid with highs in the low to mid 80s, but some areas to the far northwest may not get out of the upper 70s. Once again, locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds will be possible. A few storms will be around Sunday, but the chance of rain will be lower. Highs will be in the low to mid 80s.
A system to our west will increase the chance for storms on Monday, but most areas should be dry and hotter Tuesday. Scattered storm chances return for the middle and end of the week.
