A warm front to our south will continue to move north tonight with waves of low pressure riding along it. The warm front will remain close enough to bring periods of showers and storms through Sunday. Areas of fog will be persistent as well. The rain could occur anytime of the day or night and not just be focused in the afternoon, although, most of the rain should occur in the afternoon. Sunday looks wetter than Saturday. Temperatures will be slightly below average.
By Monday, the warm front is stalled over NC while a cold front moves in from the northwest. The front will move through from the northwest Tuesday but it will stall not too far to our south. Monday will be a mostly cloudy day with periods of showers and storms. Drier air works in for Tuesday but with the front still close by, we can't rule out a few showers or storms Tuesday through Thursday. Those days will be much drier than Monday and have more sunshine. With more sunshine, temperatures will be a little warmer but near average overall.
