With clear to mostly clear skies, nighttime temperatures will be considerably warmer than previous nights, with lows in the upper 60s and lower 70s for
Many of us. On Tuesday, the heat and humidity will continue to build up in the region, bringing high temperatures to most in the region in the mid-90s. Combined with high humidity, it will feel over 100 degrees, which is close to the threshold for heat warnings (105 east of Blue Ridge, 100 to the west). With the high temperatures on Tuesday afternoon, we could see some showers and thunderstorms in the hot and humid air. Any storms should subside quickly with the loss of daytime heating and give way to a mostly clear sky overnight.
Wednesday will pretty much see a copy of what we see on Tuesday so I’ll be watching to see if any heat warnings are issued. The only difference may be that the areal coverage of storms may be slightly higher than on Tuesday. On Thursday, a cold front will be heading for the area concurrently with the remains of Elsa moving north through the Carolinas. Uncertainty remains as to the exact orbit of Elsa, but many of the predictive models assume the storm will remain mainly south of the region. Regardless of Elsa’s course, temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than on Wednesday, as showers and thunderstorms limit warming during the day. On Friday there will be another round of showers and thunderstorms before high pressure builds up in the region at the beginning of the weekend.
Tonight: clear skies. Lows in the 70s.
Tuesday-Wednesday: Partly cloudy with isolated to isolated thunderstorms. High in the 90s.
Thursday-Friday: Partly cloudy, with isolated to isolated thunderstorms. High in the 80s
Saturday: Partly cloudy. Heights by 90 degrees.
Sunday: Mostly cloudy with a few T-Showers. Highs in the upper 80s.
Monday: Partly cloudy with a few T-Showers. Highs in the upper 80s.
Have a nice rest of the day!
