Forecast Discussion

A stalled front to our northwest will inch southward tonight and a little further southward Friday. The front combined with warm and humid air mass will help generate showers and thunderstorms; especially in the PM hours through tomorrow. The front will be stretched across NC Saturday creating cloudy skies and occasional rain and thunderstorms.

The front gets kicked east by another cold front to our west Sunday afternoon as we should clear out some Sunday afternoon but there could be leftover showers Sunday morning. The cold front to our west moves through early Monday and gives us two nice days on Monday and Tuesday. The front stalls along the east coast Wednesday and low pressure forms along it to our south, creating more clouds and rain Wednesday. Temperatures look to be slightly above average through much of the period.

The tropical Atlantic remains quiet by this year's busy standards... However, Tropical Storm Josephine developed and was named earlier today. Josephine is located about 1000 miles east of the Leeward Islands.
