Forecast Last Updated at Monday, September 1, 2014 at 6:39PM

Warm & Humid Labor Day Evening; More Unsettled for Mid-week

For the remainder of your Labor Day, expect warm and humid conditions with a few afternoon thunderstorms, although we expect it to be predominately a dry evening. A similar story goes for Tuesday with some patchy morning fog, but it will be a touch warmer. The coverage of showers and storms goes up a bit by the middle of the week along with a slight drop in afternoon highs.

Forecast Discussion

Over the next several days, an upper level high will basically stay locked in place across the southern US. A front marching across the northern US will try to drop south into the Carolinas, but the high will make it tough. By the weekend, though, the high may break down enough for one of the fronts to finally make it further south into the area. Until then, summer weather continues with above normal temperatures and isolated to scattered afternoon/evening storms.

Expect some areas of patchy fog for Tuesday morning, followed by similar conditions to today but just a bit warmer.

One of the fronts mentioned above will make a run at WNC Wednesday. It may reach northern NC before quickly lifting back to the north. Regardless, due to its close proximity, we expect a higher (ie. scattered) coverage of showers and storms, especially in the afternoon and evening hours.

The rest of the week looks like more of the same with typical, summer-time afternoon/evening storms. As mentioned above, a front may be able to penetrate further into North Carolina late in the weekend and this may be accompanied by a greater coverage of storms. Too early to know for sure just yet, though.
