Lead Forecaster Daniel Crawley
The stagnant, moist and stormy pattern of July and the first week of August is coming to an end!
Water Vapor imagery shows a distinctive cold front dropping to the southeast. By this weekend, a trough will settle in across the Eastern US setting up a less humid weekend for the Carolinas.
We will have one last day of scattered to numerous coverage of thunderstorms. Some activity might get off to an early start. As with the past several days, locally heavy rainfall and isolated damaging winds is possible.
Once we get to Friday some less humid air will start to filter in and will expand on Friday Night. While daytime highs will remain in the mid 80’s it will be the nighttime lows that will be noticeably cooler. Upper 50’s are possible in the Foothills by Saturday morning.
The less humid air will last all weekend with only slight moderation going into early next week.
