Forecast Last Updated at Sunday, May 3, 2015 at 4:41PM

Sweet Spring

We started Sunday with isolated valley frost, but temperatures rose quickly to "terrific". This morning is the last day we have to be concerned about frost for a while; however, climatologically speaking, the threat of frost in deeper valleys continues to roughly Memorial Day. See our Frost Information Page for details.
Wonderful spring temperatures and lots of beautiful weather are the main weather headlines for us this week. A secondary story will be stray afternoon thundershowers beginning Monday with Thursday looking like the day with greatest coverage.

Forecast Discussion

Last week, the weather map looked like winter. By the end of this week, it looks like summer.

The center of high pressure slides off the Carolina Coast today; however, it will control the Southeast east as long as the weather eye can see. The next two fronts will not be able to penetrate the Southeast, stalling well to our north before retreating. An upper-level disturbance in the Gulf moves across Florida and stalls off the Southeast Coast, spawning surface low pressure Thursday. That low will lurk off the Carolina Coast next weekend; however, it will have no direct effect on our weather other than increasing a moist flow off the Atlantic.

So what does all that mean for us? 1) Progressively warmer temperatures this week. 2) Mostly beautiful weather. 3) Increasing humidity from a southeasterly and eventually easterly flow will raise the potential for isolated afternoon showers and thundershowers. The only real forecast quandary is what day do we mention the popup thundershower potential in the forecast. We decided to include that mention beginning Monday. Thursday appears to be the day with the greatest areal coverage of PM thundershowers.
