A strong cold front (for late August) moves through tonight prompting a good round of ongoing showers and thunderstorms persisting through this evening. However, there is light at the end of this tunnel. It's sunshine, and low humidity! And plenty of it! Starting Wednesday, the cloud coverage will start to decrease and continue to do so into Thursday. After this cold front pushes through, it will give a slight relief as the temperatures dip below 80 degrees for a couple days this week. Overall, the middle and last half of the work week will be nothing short of pleasant. I know I'll be taking advantage of these cooler sunny days.

A cold front moves through tonight. Come Wednesday morning the cold front will be making its way through Central North Carolina continuing to head East into the Atlantic. Behind this front, high pressure builds and is posed to blanket the Eastern US and become the dominant factor over the weather pattern for the next week.
Today will be the most active day with showers and thunderstorms that will impact us through the evening hours. There is a possibility that some of the storms could be severe, however that's not a huge concern. Afterwards, Mother Nature is giving all of us a taste of early Autumn Thursday through Saturday. As temperatures cool for both the daytime and nighttime, humidity will decrease and the clouds will be few and far between. Looking ahead to next week, temperature start to head back into the Summer category and looks to remain that way for a while.
