Clouds; PM Light Showers

High pressure situated along the Mid-Atlantic coast continues to wedge southward along the eastern slopes of the Appalachians, providing a moist, cool, southeasterly flow while the remnants of briefly named Tropical Storm Bertha moves northward today into Central North Carolina. The result is for a few mainly light showers this afternoon and tonight. The low moves to the north on Thursday and a southerly flow takes over as we break out into more typical end-of-May conditions with warmer temperatures and scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms through the end of the week.

Discussion

Clouds; PM Light Showers

The remnants of newly dubbed Tropical Storm Bertha moves northward into Central North Carolina before exiting to the north later tonight. A few light showers are expected this evening as the low moves just off to our east. Some clearing is possible overnight, but any clearing would quickly lead to patchy fog.

We break out into more typical end-of-May conditions for Thursday and Friday as a moist southerly flow takes over and allows for warmer temperatures. Scattered mainly afternoon showers and thunderstorms develop on Thursday with a better concentration of showers and storms expected on Friday as a front approaches from the west. Showers and thunderstorms continue Friday night and into the day on Saturday, however I think Saturday will end up far less active. The front makes a clean sweep Saturday evening and this brings a refreshingly clear, cool air mass into western North Carolina for the conclusion of the weekend and to begin the month of June.
