June 12: Cool And Showery...For ONE Day


Yesterday's storms produced over a dozen wind, hail and lightning damage reports in central North Carolina:

While those storms are long gone, we'll still be dodging off-and-on showers throughout the day. The HRRR model's radar simulation shows the best rain chance south of the Triangle, but keep the umbrella handy no matter where you are:

The cloud cover will be tough to shake, which will keep temperatures well below normal for mid-June: That's a dozen degrees below-average for the Triangle, but NO WHERE CLOSE to record setting -- the June 12 record for "coolest high temperatures" is a meager 59 degrees, back on June 12, 1913.

This break from the sticky weather is just a one-day thing -- beginning tomorrow, it's back to the three H's of summer: haze, heat and humidity. High temperatures will climb to near 90, with just an isolated storm chance in the afternoon:

Another ripple in the atmosphere will bump up our storm chances a little bit on Thursday, but the overall forecast won't change much from tomorrow through the weekend: hot and humid every day, with a typical summertime 20-30% storm chance:

A more substantial heat wave looks to settle in next week -- low to mid 90s Monday and Tuesday might be a conservative estimate.
