A cold front will continue press into the region tonight. We’ll have a thunderstorm in some places this evening then the rest of tonight will be partly to mostly cloudy and still a bit humid with lows in the 60s. This front is going to stall close to the area Friday and Saturday. We’ll have a fair amount of clouds each day with some showers and drizzle around each day. It’s not going to rain all of the time but you may want to carry the umbrella. Highs will be in the lower to middle 70s on Friday and then will likely not leave the 60s on Saturday.
The remnant moisture from what once was Tropical Moisture Gordon will link up with this front and that is going to help spark heavy rainfall from parts of the Midwest into our area. A steadier rainfall will develop on Sunday and will likely become heavy for Sunday afternoon into Monday morning before tapering to showers late. This rain is going to keep us quite cool on Sunday with highs in the 50s to the lower 60s. We will also have areas of fog. Temperatures will likely not leave the 60s on Monday either. It’s still real early but there is a potential to have several inches of rainfall which will cause some flooding issues after coming out of the wettest summer on record. Showers will still be possible on Tuesday with more clouds than sunshine. Highs will be in the 70s. We’ll turn warmer on Wednesday and Thursday with a mix of clouds and sunshine along with just the chance for a shower. Highs will be near to just above 80 each day. By Thursday there may be a breeze that develops as Hurricane Florence approaches the east coast. That is something that we will continue to monitor as we head through the upcoming weekend and early next week.
