Decent Today, Storms Tomorrow NC 7-23-13

Leftover clouds from last night's storms remain this morning.  They should thin out some as the morning wears on though and we should see a decent amount of sunshine by the afternoon.  We will have the chance of an isolated scattered afternoon storm or two, although chances are pretty low.

A cold front moves through tomorrow morning and will push to our south.  Instability will be limited with this front though, so only scattered showers and storms are expected tomorrow.

The front will be in the Eastern Carolinas on Thursday.  An area of low pressure will develop along it and create moist, upslow wind flow from the east/southeast.  At the same time, high pressure in the Northeast will push a wedge of relatively cooler air down the Appalachians.  As a result, Thursday is going to see temperatures well below normal with scattered light showers throughout the day, mainly on the eastern facing slopes.  A lot of locations probably won't get out of the 60's.  The NWS has a forecast calling for partly sunny skies, however setups like this typically yield overcast, dreary days for the High Country.

Things clear up nicely for Friday and Saturday.  High pressure moves in for a couple days, producing plenty of sunshine and some comfortable temps.  As is the case for this time of year, there is a chance of isolated afternoon storms though.  That's typical.

Another cold front moves through late Sunday/early Monday.  It could team up with a disturbance to our south and produce a good amount of rain on Sunday, with showers lingering into Monday.
