90s, more storms return before Thursday cold front

Updated:

It has been one week since most of central North Carolina was in the 90s, but that changes Wednesday as most of us wait on a cold front Thursday.

While there wasn't as much rain Tuesday as the flooding rain we saw Monday, the humidity was still there and temperatures started to warm up.  The high in the Triangle Tuesday was 84 while Fayetteville made it up to 90.  The normal high this time of year is 90 and we should be very near that the next two days.

After some evening scattered showers and heavy downpours, it will be mostly cloudy and muggy with an overnight low of 72.

More sun and less rain chances will allow temperatures tomorrow to get back to the 90s Wednesday.  Look for highs around 91 and it will continue to be humid, so it will be very uncomfortable.  There will just be a chance of a spotty PM storm on Wednesday. 

On Thursday a cold front will approach, so there will be a few PM showers and storms around.  There is a slight risk for a strong gusty storm with the cold front. Otherwise it will be partly sunny and still hot with a high of 91.

Drier air will try to move in behind the front on Friday and Saturday.  Skies will be partly sunny on Friday with just a slight risk of a PM storm.  The main chance will be southeast of the Triangle.  Highs on Friday will be about 4 degrees cooler than Thursday, so look for a high of 87 on Friday.  Saturday looks like the driest day, with mostly to partly sunny skies and a high of 88.

Sunday and Monday will be near normal with highs back to around 90.  There will be a chance of a spotty PM shower or storm each day under partly sunny skies.
