Forecast Last Updated at Friday, September 30, 2016 at 6:16AM
The weather crew here at Ray’s Weather get a little break as we enter the first weekend of October. Before we get to that, we hang onto a chance for showers and maybe a thundershower until mid-afternoon. Skies become clear tonight, and you'll notice a cooler difference in the air mass. Saturday and Sunday feature bright sunshine along with slowly moderating temperatures. Dry conditions continue next week.

An upper level low pressure system spinning over Kentucky this morning will begin to lift northward today. Meanwhile, a stationary front that has been stalled across central North Carolina will begin to make a move to the east. Shower and thundershower chances will remain with us into the afternoon before skies clear. In the wake of these features, high pressure will regain control of our weather, and will be with us most (if not all) of next week.
So, we get to put this thing on cruise control for the foreseeable future. The weather through the weekend will be generally sunny. Daytime highs will be quite pleasant, and lows will be quite refreshing, giving those A/Cs a long overdue break.
There’s not much change as we move into next week. Expect status quo conditions with the following caveat: High pressure may take on more of a wedge configuration, leading to an increase in cloud cover.
Potent Hurricane Matthew continues westward through the central Caribbean. We expect a northward turn over the weekend, likely impacting a portion of Cuba, Haiti or maybe even Jamaica. The Bahamas will be affected as we move into next week, and maybe the Carolina coast thereafter.
