Nice Weekend, Hot

The "Dog Days" continue this weekend with a frontal boundary stalled over the Piedmont keeping most shower activity in the central and eastern part of the state. However, expect isolated afternoon thundershowers again Sunday providing some temporary heat relief. Coverage of afternoon showers begins to increase Monday and the trend continues as the week progresses.

Forecast Discussion

As many of us long for less heat and humidity we are reminded that it is only mid-August and there's still plenty of summer left. Let alone hurricane season. A front is draped across the middle part of the state and it stays there over the weekend before fading out to some extent early next week. (A weak surface trough is left.)

There will be a thundershower or two around again Sunday afternoon, but many of us stay dry. Better coverage of showers and storms ensues Monday and ramps up towards the middle of the upcoming week. The culprit is a slow moving front that gets in here Thursday. The cooling effects of afternoon showers will be welcomed.

Question marks are introduced into the forecast Friday. Does the front get far enough south to preclude a shower mention or not? That is the question. I leaned towards a drier and less humid Friday for now.
