CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - First Alert: Scattered storms to move through Tuesday afternoon, evening

Less humid, but hot work week ahead!

  • First Alert: Next best chance for rain arrives Tuesday
  • Hot, less humid through mid-week
  • Labor Day Weekend: Isolated to widely scattered storms, warm, and muggy

It was another day in the 90s as we approach the end of August and start of September... Overnight, temperatures will fall back to the 70-degree mark with patchy fog developing across parts of the area. Although it will be dry to start, an advancing cold front will bring scattered showers and storms to the region by the afternoon and evening hours. Not everyone will see rain, but heavy rain, lighting, and gusty winds are the main concerns for those that do.

Although we won’t notice a big cooldown behind the front, high pressure will help to usher in drier, less humid conditions for the mid-week period! Anticipate morning lows back in the mid to upper 60s as a result, despite afternoon highs near 90-degrees each afternoon.

We’ll notice an uptick in moisture by Labor Day Weekend! From Saturday through Monday, morning lows will be near the 70-degree mark and afternoon highs will top out in the upper 80s. Isolated to widely scattered showers and storms will also be possible on a daily basis. Stay tuned for frequent forecast updates as we get closer!

Tropical Update: There are now several areas to watch as we quickly near the peak of hurricane season... The one with the highest chance of tropical development is just east of the Lesser Antilles and will likely become a tropical depression by the end of the week. Although it will initially work towards the east coastline, it will eventually get steered east and away from the Continental US by the start of next week. We’ll keep you posted in the coming days as we monitor any forecast changes!
