Forecast Last Updated at Tuesday, August 16, 2022 at 6:34AM
Lots of Clouds; Occasional Showers
The atmosphere is stuck in a pattern which will provide similar weather each day for the foreseeable future. That weather consists of mostly cloudy skies, occasional periods of showers and thundershowers with slightly below average temperatures. Rain will occur mostly in the afternoon but there is a chance rain could fall anytime of the day or night as weak systems move through. Morning fog is likely as well.

A stalled front to our south with waves of low pressure riding along it will bring periods of showers and thunderstorms each day through Friday. The timing of the waves are difficult to pin down as they are relatively weak. Showers and storms should occur mostly in the afternoon but with this pattern, rain is possible anytime during the day or night. Morning fog is likely as well especially if we get a bit of clearing overnight. High pressure to the north will keep temperatures slightly below average.
By Saturday, the front will begin to move northward as a warm front. Since we will be closer to the front, the coverage of rain and storms will increase and be confined mostly to the afternoon. Temperatures will warm a little and it will be more humid for the weekend. By early next week, another cold front will approach from the northwest so western NC will be in a squeeze play between two fronts.
