PH RAIN_CHANCES_1550831891569.png.jpg


First the bad news: the cool and wet weather will continue today, tonight, tomorrow, tomorrow night, and all the way into Sunday morning.

Now the good news: we’ll dry out and warm up Sunday afternoon!

And the even better news: we’ll STAY dry Monday and Tuesday!

In the short term, the forecast for today and tomorrow is pretty bleak. Widespread rain will fall most of this morning, then we’ll see a few more breaks between the showers this afternoon and early this evening. Keep the umbrella handy, though — the HRRR model’s radar simulation from 9:00am through 9:00pm shows enough shower activity to keep our rain chances around 50-50, even later today:We’ve already reached our high temperature for the day — temperatures will slowly drop, and we’ll be in the 40s areawide this afternoon:

More rain will spread across central North Carolina tonight through early Saturday. Another break from the highest rain chances Saturday is shown by the North American Model’s radar simulation, from 9:00pm today through 3:00pm Saturday:That break is deceptive — mist and drizzle will keep things damp, and dense fog will develop and stick around through Saturday night. And temperatures will remain cool all day — at best, we’ll recover to the mid to upper 40s late Saturday afternoon:

One more batch of showers will move through early Sunday. Back to the North American Model, this time from 3:00pm Saturday through 1:00pm Sunday, which shows that last round of showers losing its intensity as it moves through:

Sunday afternoon will be very breezy, but also significantly warmer:The dry weather sticks around Monday and Tuesday…and even once the shower chances return to the forecast, it’s a very slight chance Wednesday and Thursday. Just get through the next couple of wet and gloomy days…
