The Unsettled Weather Pattern Continues NC 7-2-13

The soggy conditions of June are going to carry over into the first part of July.  The upcoming week features more unsettled weather with the daily threat of heavy rain.  Unfortunately, it looks like our nation's birthday will be a soggy one.

A Bermuda high in the western Atlantic currently extends into the eastern part of the country.  An upper level trough has become stationary over the Ohio and Tennessee River Valleys.  This is allowing for huge amounts of tropical moisture to enter the region.  Several upper level disturbances will be the catalyst for storms over the next several days.  In fact, today, tomorrow, and Thursday will all see widespread showers and thunderstorms.  Heavy rain is possible and I'm expecting flash flooding to be an issue.  Most of the western NC region is currently under a Flash Flood Watch through tomorrow morning.

The upper trough to our west will weaken by the end of the week.  Showers are still expected on Friday but they will be more scattered in nature.

The Bermuda high will assert itself and extend further west over the weekend.  Saturday and Sunday will see warmer temps and a decent amount of sunshine.  Precip chances will still be there but they will be low.  Basically, the weekend will feature typical summer conditions.  Monday looks like more of the same.
