A Dry Week Ahead NC 9-3-13

After today, we're looking at a dry week ahead of us.  That hasn't been said too often, if at all, this summer.

A cold front will sweep through today.  We're not expecting anything in the way of precipitation, but there will be increased cloudiness as a result.

High pressure and drier air moves in behind the front on Wednesday, producing some superb weather.  We're talking plenty of sunshine and highs in the 70's without the chance of afternoon showers and storms.  That's pretty perfect!

In general, high pressure will dominate for the rest of the week, save for a weak front passing through from the north late on Thursday that isn't expected to produce any precip for us. Thursday and Friday look similar to Wednesday in that blue skies will prevail.  More clouds will be prevalent on Saturday thanks to an upslope, easterly wind flow but it still will be pretty nice.

Showers and storms don't return to the forecast until Sunday when an upper disturbance brings back the chance of scattered afternoon convection.
