Scattered Showers and T-showers

Lingering showers and thundershowers are clipping SW North Carolina early Sunday morning. We'll have several dry hours before daytime heating re-fires afternoon and evening showers and storms. Warm weather continues Memorial Day with widely scattered (mostly) afternoon thundershowers. The coming week will be drier overall until late-week.

Discussion

Scattered Showers and T-showers

High pressure centered in the Eastern Gulf is pumping warm, moist air into the Southeast. A frontal boundary stretches from Northern VA across the Ohio Valley to Missouri. It is making slow progress southward. Another front is pressing east into the Mississippi and eventually Tennessee River Valleys.

After a warm and mostly dry Saturday, storms formed in the afternoon in Tennessee and moved east into North Carolina.

Sunday, warm temperatures continue. Shower and storm coverage will be greater but still "scattered". Memorial Day looks drier with only isolated thundershowers.

Tuesday through Friday, a frontal boundary will be just to our south. Details of it's location are unknowable at this time. We'll have seasonal temperatures and tons of dry weather; however, I cannot completely rule out an afternoon thundershower any of these days. Hopefully, we'll be able to be more specific as time draws closer.
