Weather Summary:

We are tracking a weak disturbance in the StormTrack 12 Weather Center. We will remain partly cloudy and mainly dry overnight. The humidity will be slighter higher than what we have seen the past few days. Lows will be near 70° inland an in the low to mid 70s at the coast.

High pressure has been the main feature for the past few day. We will continue a similar patter with partly cloudy skies and only a 30 percent chance of a shower or thunderstorm in eastern Carolina. Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s at the beaches and near 90° at inland locations.

Partly cloudy and warm conditions will stick around for Tuesday night. Any daytime showers should dissipate after sunset. Lows will be in the low 70s inland and mid to upper 70s along the coast.

High pressure will continue from off the mid-Atlantic coast into the Ohio Valley on Wednesday. This should keep us mainly dry, with partly cloudy skies. Only an isolated shower or thundershower chance at best. Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s at the beaches and low 90s inland.

StormTrack 12 meteorologists are tracking the high slowly shifting to the west. This will continue the partly cloudy skies and only isolated shower chances on Thursday. The temperatures will warm slightly more that normal.

A large area of low pressure is located over the eastern Gulf of Mexico, across north Florida and into the Atlantic. This will slowly push moisture to the north for the mid to late week time frame.

On Friday, the high will have drifted more westward and allow a cold front to slide southeast. The cold front and the moisture from the south will increase our shower and thunderstorm chances. Friday will see a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms.

The models are a little inconsistent in placing the front south, after it passes through the area. Saturday will keep a 30 percent chance for showers and thunderstorms. However, if the front stalls a little more north than expected, the shower and thunderstorm chances will increase.

The front will try to drift north, before washing out, on Sunday. We have a 40 percent chance for Sunday and then a typical 30 percent chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms on Monday.

Highs will be in the upper 80s to low 90s Thursday through Monday. Lows will in the low to mid 70s Wednesday night through Monday night.
