  • * Seasonable Temperatures
    * Break From The Humidity
    * Weekend T-Storms Return

    After a nice July summer day on Wednesday with tolerable heat *and* humidity, the pattern remains favorable today and perhaps through Friday as well.

    Afternoon temperatures will remain very consistent in the seasonable upper 80s right through the end of the week and into the weekend. Rain chances for most of the WBTV viewing area will remain low through Friday, though a few thundershowers in western sections - mainly the mountains - can't be ruled out.  

    The weekend will be a different story. We will become more unsettled area-wide and a wetter pattern will set in that will take us into the middle of next week. A large Bermuda High will set up and push warm, muggy air back into the Carolinas, resulting in a return to humid conditions and higher chances for showers and storms over the weekend and deep into next week! 

    Most of us are in need of rain, so, on the surface, this is good news.  But if the pattern unfolds as we think it will, there would likely be several episodes of heavy rain through the middle of next week and so concerns over flooding could be raised.

    Enjoy your Thursday!
