Tuesday, September 2

Tuesday night: Partly cloudy with a chance for some storms early this evening mainly in the Sandhills and perhaps the Triangle then a stray shower overnight is possible. Lows in the upper 60s-lower 70s. It was a sultry afternoon with Heat Index Values moving well into the 100s and making it feel miserable. The awesome news is, we likely won't be experiencing this kind of heat tomorrow. Temperatures this evening will easily remain in the 80s then cooling into the 70s by daybreak. Winds will be light.

Wednesday, September 3

Partly to mostly cloudy with showers and storms more likely this afternoon and evening. Highs in the upper 80s-lower 90s. We have been tracking a cold front for the past few days and this afternoon it makes its way into North Carolina. As mentioned before, it appears the momentum in the atmosphere will not be strong enough to carry the front through the state. With the front stalling upon the state, it is likely increased cloud cover and storm coverage will keep temperatures in check for the next few days and excessive heat will not be something we will experience. Sunrise: 6:48 a.m., Sunset: 7:39 p.m. Wind: SW at 5 m.p.h. Wednesday night: Partly to mostly cloudy with showers and storms this evening and perhaps a stray shower overnight. Lows in the upper 60s-lower 70s. Winds will be light.

Thursday, September 4

Mostly cloudy skies with showers still likely. Highs in the mid-upper 80s. Our front is expected to remain stalled across the region today which should keep clouds in place and a chance for showers really at any time. Sunrise: 6:49 a.m., Sunset: 7:37 p.m. Wind: SW at 5 m.p.h. Thursday night: Mostly cloudy with some showers and possible storms. Lows in the upper 60s. Winds from the south at 5 mph.
