May 6: Calm Start To The Week



The weekend brought us scattered storms and even some minor damage, but it was far from a total washout…and the new work week is starting off with a stretch of calm weather. We’ll see a mix of clouds and sunshine today, with highs almost exactly normal for early May:

The humidity will be noticeably lower too — the combination of clear skies and lower humidity will allow temperatures to drop to the upper 50s by early Tuesday morning:

The warm air returns on Tuesday, with highs climbing back to the lower half of the 80s:

The humidity will creep upward by Wednesday, bringing a slight rain chance back into the picture. The best chance will be north of the Triangle, along the Virginia state line:The next decent chance of rain for everyone will hold off until the weekend…the specific timing is still really up in the air. The American GFS model moves some showers and storms into central North Carolina already by late Friday — here’s that model’s simulation for Friday through Monday:But the European forecast model (typically more-accurate, but it’s not perfect) is much slower, keeping Friday dry — but both models do show an unsettled weekend overall:I don’t think Saturday or Mother’s Day will be a total washout, but be flexible with any outdoor plans. We’ll also keep a close eye on any severe weather potential — it’s just too early at this point for any significant concerns.
