Summer's Last Stand?

Average high temperatures for this time in September are in the lower 70s. We're not even in the ballpark the next couple of days as warm high pressure remains in control, but that changes beginning Sunday. Once again Friday is seasonably warm with only a stray PM thundershower mention. A front approaches from the west Saturday leading to scattered late afternoon and evening thundershowers (remaining warm beforehand). The front stalls across the region Sunday and Monday generating ample cloud cover, showers, and finally cooler temperatures.

Forecast Discussion

Damage from Florence in SE NC is tremendous. It will take months, if not a year for many locations to recover. It's generally the same area that was hit so hard by Matthew two years ago. For several years, I have relied on Charity Navigator to research worthy charities to help in situations like this. Please join me in donating to relief efforts in the wake of Hurricane Florence.

The weather story through the end of the work week is rather straightforward- warm with stray PM thundershowers.

Here's the setup beginning this weekend:
A front crosses the nation's midsection Friday and Saturday, stalling over the southern Appalachians Sunday and Monday. The stalled front is reinforced Monday as high pressure briefly wedges down the mountains. Tuesday, the front retreats northward only to be followed by a stronger, yet more progressive frontal passage late Wednesday or Thursday.

The sensible results:
Scattered thundershowers develop ahead of the front Saturday afternoon and evening. However, it remains on the warm-side Saturday until then. Sunday is generally cloudy with scattered light showers and is noticeably cooler. Under the full wedge influence, Monday is overcast, another notch cooler, and showery. Showers remain in play Tuesday though rainfall is much more intermittent as the front lifts north.
