There will be a north-northeast breeze again this afternoon. The breeze, along with warm sunshine and low humidity will make for a very nice afternoon.

After a pleasant evening, clouds will gradually increase overnight, and it won’t be as chilly with lows in the 50s.

More clouds will filter into the region Thursday, but rain chances will remain very low. With more clouds and gusty breezes, Thursday will be cooler with highs in the low to mid-70s.

A First Alert has been hoisted for Friday and Saturday, but it’s not a washout. As a storm system rides north through the central Carolinas, our rain chances will gradually pick up as we move deeper into Friday. Afternoon temperatures will hold in the low to mid-70s Friday with the best chance for rain coming late Friday and Friday night.

As the storm pulls away, more sunshine is forecast for Saturday, but a few scattered thundershowers may linger as highs rebound to near 80 degrees.

At this point, it looks like Sunday will be a pretty nice day with partly sunny skies and afternoon readings in the middle 80s, and just a stray afternoon thunderstorm forecast.

Hope you have a great hump day!
