Forecast Last Updated at Wednesday, September 19, 2018 at 10:18PM

Mostly Warm and Pleasant

The main forecast takeaway for tonight and the next two days should be warm and pleasant; however, a stray afternoon shower or thundershower is not impossible (barely worth mentioning tonight, isolated Thursday, slight chance Friday). Enjoy sunshine, warm afternoons, and pleasant evenings. The next front from the northwest approaches early next week adding clouds and scattered showers, also lowering daytime highs.

Forecast Discussion

Damage from Florence in SE NC is tremendous. It will take months, if not a year for many locations to recover. It's generally the same area that was hit so hard by Matthew two years ago. For several years, I have relied on Charity Navigator to research worthy charities to help in situations like this. Please join me in donating to relief efforts in the wake of Hurricane Florence.

It's great to hear of people helping in hard-hit areas to our east. I was on the phone last night--one person told me about taking food stranded residents near the coast--the first hot meal they had had in days. Another person's wife was working to rescue animals in Eastern NC. Kudos to all who are helping.

Our weather is far from severe for the foreseeable future. Today through Friday is mostly warm and pleasant with high pressure in control. Each day has the slightest chance of a stray afternoon shower or thundershower because of daytime heating. Thursday appears to have the greatest coverage, but that's only isolated at most.

A front arrives late Sunday or early Monday and stalls just to our south. As the front approaches, Saturday afternoon/evening has scattered showers and thundershowers with warm temperatures. Sunday and Monday have more clouds, gradually cooler temperatures, and scattered mostly light showers. Scattered showers remain in play Tuesday. We'll have plenty of dry hours each day.
