Steamy and stormy pattern continues

Weather

Widespread storms Monday afternoon resulted in numerous severe thunderstorm warnings, and even some wind damage across parts of central North Carolina.

Today’s storm chances will be a bit lower during the day, but there’s always some chance of a pop-up storm in this kind of hot and humid weather pattern. Highs will reach the low 90s again, with heat indices running close to 100°. A better chance of storms will develop late this evening and early tonight, possibly lingering into early Wednesday morning.

Scattered storms will still be possible tomorrow and Thursday, back to our normal summertime pattern — popping up by mid-afternoon, with the highest rain chances in the late afternoon and early evening.

Toward the end of the week, we’ll see a better chance of showers and storms as a cold front approaches. Rain chances go up Friday and Saturday, with lingering showers and thunderstorms still possible Sunday and Monday. Highs will drop into the 80s starting Friday — the humidity will drop somewhat as well over the weekend, but there will still be enough moisture to fuel the lingering showers.

The rest of today will have a mix of clouds and sun, with a few isolated storms in the afternoon. Spotty to scattered showers and storms possible this evening and overnight. The high will be 92, winds will be southwest 5 to 10 mph. The rain chance will be 30 percent before sunset, 40% by midnight.

Wednesday will have a mix of clouds and sun after some early morning showers. Scattered showers or storms will develop again in the afternoon and evening. The high will be 91, after a morning low of 72. The rain chance will be 40 percent.

Thursday will have a mix of clouds and sunshine, with scattered showers and storms developing. The high will be 92, after a morning low of 72. The rain chance will be 40 percent.

Friday will have more clouds than sun, with a good chance of showers and thunderstorms. The high will be 87, after a morning low of 72. The rain chance will be 60 percent.

Saturday will be mostly cloudy, with a good chance of showers and thunderstorms. The high will be 84, after a morning low of 71. The rain chance will be 70 percent.

Sunday will have a mix of clouds and sun, with scattered showers and storms still possible. The high will be 83, after a morning low of 68. The rain chance will be 50 percent.

Monday will have a mix of clouds and sun, with lingering showers and storms possible, especially south of the Triangle. The high will be 83, after a morning low of 67. The rain chance will be 40 percent.
