Tiny Tropical Troubles

We welcome the possibility of some rainier skies overnight as newly-formed "Claudette" moves across the southeast. We remain at the northern edge of the system's likely track, but some moderate rains could be on tap. Weather improves for late Sunday and Monday with exception of the usual afternoon thundershowers, with more organized rain likely Tuesday along a weak cold front; things dry out a bit into next weekend.

Forecast Discussion

Lower pressure courtesy a newly-formed "Claudette" approaches tonight with some potential for heavier rains depending on its exact track for Sunday. Right now it looks as if it will compete with a ridge to the north, leaving for a well-defined but uncertain gradient of rainfall just around the southern NC mountains/foothills.

Ridging returns briefly, with the usual warm and juicy thunderstorm potential for Monday, with a weak larger-scale front approaching from the northwest into Tuesday; this should usher in more persistent rainfall before departing into the evening hours

The remainder of the week looks quiet, with a slightly cooler and drier outlook. Things get a bit more humid going into the weekend, however, though nothing well defined seems to be apparent as of now.
