Tropical air heading to the Carolinas, will bring scattered thunderstorms

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -
  • Tropical Air In Place Now
  • Fuel For Showers / Storms
  • Humidity Takes Mid-Week Break

A cold front, currently over the Ohio Valley is moving toward the Carolinas. Because of that, we are in a warm and humid air mass. We are also more unsettled than the past few days. There is a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms across the area on Tuesday, with the best chance coming during the afternoon and evening hours. Before any rain comes to town, afternoon readings will jump back up to near 90 degrees again with the heat index pushing the upper 90s.

There will be a few changes by Wednesday. While afternoon readings will still approach 90 degrees, both the low rain chance and humidity level will lower. Dew points will scale back to the low to mid 60s for a few days, not bad for late July in the Carolinas. 

Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s Thursday through Sunday. Rain chances do look to go back up by over weekend as another cold front approaches the region.

Hope you have a terrific Tuesday!
