Friday Rain

Unsettled weather will continue today as front number two of the week approaches from the north.  Several storm cells are already starting to pop up on radar and just like yesterday, heavy rain is expected.  Precipitable water values are approaching 2″ right now, which is pretty high.  As a result, localized flash flooding is a good possibility for those areas that are prone to it.  On a similar note, one of the CoCoRaHS stations in Caldwell County is reporting 3.28″ of rain in the past 24 hours.  That’s pretty crazy.

The front will move through the region by the early evening hours tonight, bringing a general end to the shower/thunderstorm activity by midnight.  Partly sunny skies and very warm, humid conditions tomorrow mean scattered afternoon thunderstorms are possible.  It should be pretty nice out there though.

High pressure begins to build into the region on Sunday, lasting into the first half of next week.  Southeasterly wind flow will result in very HOT temperatures.  Highs will be in the low 80’s for most areas.  While it will be somewhat less humid than this week, it will still be pretty muggy.  Humidity levels the past few days have been consistently in the 90 percent range, so anything less than this will be a welcome relief.  Afternoon scattered storms will be possible, but this is typical for July weather.  Enjoy your weekend!
