Clouds will be on the increase tonight ahead of the frontal boundary that will move into the region tomorrow.

Tonight: Increasing Clouds

Lows: 60s to Low 70s | Wind: Light

Friday: Mostly Cloudy, Stray Showers

Highs: Mid to Upper 80s | Wind: S 4-8 m.p.h.

Saturday: Partly Sunny, PM Storms Possible

Highs: Around 90 | Wind: S 5-10 m.p.h.

The warm and dry weather will continue through this evening as a stationary front resides across North Carolina. But the front will start moving northward tomorrow as a warm front. The first effect will be an increase in cloudiness during the day tomorrow followed by an increase in humidity levels and an eventual increase in the chance of rain by late tomorrow.

On Saturday, the front will pass completely through our area returning a hot and humid air mass. This will push temperatures to the 90 degree mark and increase shower and thunderstorm chances to 40 percent. As the hot and humid air builds, it appears we will have a stretch of uncomfortably hot and humid weather with a 30% to 40% chance of daily thunderstorms through most of next week. A cold front could bring some brief relief by next Thursday. While it will get hot once again highs will remain in the lower to middle 90s not the triple digit heats we endured last week.
