RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — A cold front moved through central North Carolina early Saturday morning, lowering humidity a bit for the first weekend of August. That cold front will move toward the coast on Saturday morning and high pressure will build in from the northwest. This will allow the humidity levels to drop and mostly sunny skies to build in across central North Carolina. Any shower or storm threat should stay along and near the coast on Saturday.
With the high pressure nearby on Saturday night, skies should be clear and temperatures will drop in the lower to middle 60s. The humidity will increase on Sunday as skies will become partly sunny. With the flow returning of the Atlantic Ocean, a late-day shower or storm will be possible.
A warm front will lift north on Monday, followed very quick;y by another cold front Monday night into Tuesday. This front will have a lot more moisture with it, so scattered showers and storms will be around on Monday. Some of those storms could be strong to possibly even severe. That front is expected to stall on Tuesday, so a few more showers or storms will be possible on Tuesday through next Thursday.
