Warmer, humid Wednesday before storms roll in tonight


A slow-moving cold front approaches Wednesday night bringing the threat of severe weather north and west of the city. The storms will drift toward the city, but it will be much weaker by the time it arrives. The front will linger around on Thursday, keeping the risk of showers around. By Friday, a storm well offshore could bring a few additional showers before skies finally clear out for the weekend. 

The early evening hours of Wednesday night will remain dry for the coastal sections. Heading into the overnight hours, a line of scattered showers and storms will approach the coast and it could linger around. By the time it arrives, it does not look like it will be on the severe side, but a few brief heavy showers cannot be ruled out. Temperatures will be in the upper 60s to around 70 degrees.

The front that is bringing in the showers Wednesday night will slow down, keeping it on the unsettled side on Thursday.  It will be a generally cloudy day and while It is not going to be a washout, the risk of occasional showers will be on the table. It will be cooler with temperatures in the mid 70s.

The National Hurricane Center is monitoring a disturbance well off the coast of Florida that has the potential a becoming a tropical depression within the next few days. Regardless of whether it will further develop or not, it will drift north toward the Carolinas before heading out to sea. Even though it will pass well east of our area, it could interact with an area of high pressure to our west and bring a few showers around on Friday. Temperatures will be around 80 degrees.

Beyond Friday, we are looking at what will be a tranquil and warm stretch that may linger into next week. 
Skies will clear out on Saturday as temperatures climb into the lower 80s. Sunday looks to be a warm sunny day as temperatures climb further into the mid to upper 80s.

High pressure will stick around early next week keeping up in the dry pattern intact. Temperatures will also remain above normal, but not necessarily on the very warm side. Highs will hover at around the lower 80s.
