Summer’s Back

After our brief interlude from the summer heat and humidity, it will return for an extended stay, starting today. The weather pattern will also be a mostly dry one, lasting through the weekend. We expect plenty of sunshine each day, but some afternoon cloud build-ups will yield isolated late-day showers and thundershowers.

Forecast Discussion

Monday and Tuesday were more pleasant days, with a drier and cooler air mass overhead. Yesterday, persistent cloud cover kept temperatures down. Today, we expect more sunshine to bust through sending temperatures higher. Only an isolated afternoon shower or thundershower is expected.

A dome of high pressure at the surface and aloft will promote above-normal late-summer warmth through the forecast period. Sunshine will prevail over clouds each day, but there will be sufficient afternoon instability to promote a couple of hit-or-miss showers or thundershowers around western North Carolina. A weak front slips into the area by Saturday, but it will have little sensible weather impact on us.

We are keeping an eye on a strong tropical wave that is moving to the north of Hispaniola today, and it could become a tropical depression or storm as it moves across south Florida late this weekend. While the ultimate track and intensity of this system remains speculative, it could have some impact on our weather toward the middle of next week. If it gets a name, it would be called Hermine.
