CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Another comfortable day is ahead for Thursday, before humidity and chances for scattered showers and storms pick up by Labor Day weekend.

  • Pleasant for Thursday morning.
  • Slightly cooler, but stormy at times this weekend.
  • Three areas to watch in the Atlantic.

The lower humidity has moved in behind Tuesday’s cold front and will stick around through Thursday. As a result, anticipate a pleasant start to your Thursday morning as temperatures drop into the mid 60s.

Although less humid, high temperatures will still be able to reach that 90-degree mark by the afternoon hours under lots of sunshine.

Wrapping up the work week, we’ll an upward climb in humidity once again and even a stray shower or two.

Highs will reach the low 90s Friday afternoon but will only top out in the mid to upper 80s for our Labor Day Weekend. This weekend is still not looking like a washout for those of you with travel or outdoor plans, but we have bumped up our rain chances a bit.

Scattered showers and storms will be possible each day, with coverage looking most impressive Sunday and Monday. Be sure to check back in tomorrow and Friday for updated looks at that holiday weekend forecast!

Isolated rain and storms linger into midweek next week, with high temperatures in the mid 80s.

Tropical Update: There are still three areas being watched by the National Hurricane Center, two with a high chance of tropical development within the next two to five days. None of these disturbances pose a threat to the Continental United States at this time.

Fun fact: We’re closing in on the end of August, and if no storms are named by the end of the night, it will be the first August since 1997 that there were no named storms in the Atlantic Basin!
