RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — After the hottest day in the Triangle so far this year on Saturday, cooler and slightly less humid air will move in on Sunday.
The cold front that brought showers and some severe storms to central North Carolina will move to the coast on Sunday, allowing for slightly cooler air to move in. It will still be somewhat humid on Sunday, but with highs in the upper 80s it will feel much better than Friday and Saturday. With the front close to the coast, an isolated storm could develop during the afternoon and early evening hours, mainly in areas south-southeast of the Triangle.
Monday will be around normal with a high of 90. There will only be a slight risk of a storm during the afternoon.
It will be hotter on Tuesday and Wednesday with highs in the middle 90s on Wednesday. With the hot and humid weather returning, there could be an isolated PM storm possible each day. Next Thursday and Friday a front will approach the state and there will be a better chance of scattered showers and storms. That cold front will push through late Friday, so as of now, next Saturday will be a bit cooler with highs falling back into the upper 80s.
