Rain Chances Down, Temps Up This Weekend
HIGH RAIN CHANCES RETURN EARLY NEXT WEEK
We’ve seen scattered showers and thunderstorms throughout the area over the past few days courtesy of an upper-level low pressure system pinwheeling through the Carolinas. That low should loosen its grip on our weather today and tomorrow, but with it still nearby, we’ll see isolated showers and storms. With the low pressure around, highs will only reach the 80s today and tomorrow before warmer conditions take hold for the weekend.
A brief dry spell is in store for the Father’s Day weekend, as rain chances will temporarily be out of the picture. As a result, highs will soar into the lower to middle 90s. Lows each morning will be in the upper 60s to lower 70s.
Moisture will be on the increase next week as southerly flow intensifies out of the Gulf of Mexico, bringing a typical early summer forecast of scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s with more cloud cover around, and overnight lows will be warmer with the added humidity, in the 70-75 degree range.
