June 8: Back To Summertime Reality


It's baaaaaaaaaack. The humidity, that is.

And now that it's back, it's not going anywhere for a while. Dew points will stay in the upper 60s throughout the day, which is close to "gross" territory on the muggy meter:

Temperatures will warm up to the upper 80s this afternoon, with the humidity making it feel like 90+:

More of the same this weekend -- be prepared to perspire if you're heading out to the Pimento Cheese Festival in Cary on Saturday:

Just a very slight chance of a shower today, with a few more showers/storms possible on Saturday, and a better chance by Sunday afternoon. It won't be a washout, so I wouldn't cancel any outdoor plans -- just be flexible, and have an indoor alternative in case Mother Nature decides to throw some storms your way. The highest storm chance will arrive to start the new work week on Monday:

The cold front that will bring the highest storm chance will get "stuck" nearby Tuesday and Wednesday, so we'll keep a decent chance of rain in the forecast for both days. The Weather Prediction Center's 5-day rainfall forecast shows that most spots across central North Carolina can expect at least an inch of rain, with some spots possibly getting close to two inches: I'm cautiously optimistic that the forecast will dry out a bit by the end of next week.
