After warm Sunday, storms, cooler temps on tap for Monday

Posted August 6

— Sunday's warm and pleasant will be disrupted this week as humidity rises along with a chance of storms, according to WRAL meteorologist Aimee Wilmoth.

"Rain in on the way this week," Wilmoth said. "Our rain chances are going to be pretty high Monday and Tuesday. It won't rain all day, but we have a 60 percent chance of getting rain those days and then the chance drops a bit."

Storms are likely on Monday, when the chance for activity rises to about 60 percent.

"We'll have a small risk of severe weather in the evening with some localized downpours and damaging winds possible," WRAL meteorologist Mike Moss said.

Temperatures will be milder on Monday and the days to follow with highs in the low to mid 80s.

There is a risk for storms again Monday night as a cold front comes into the area.

"It is going to be a busy week in the weather center with so many storms," she said.

Temperatures will remain warm all week with highs in the mid 80s.

"That actually looks pretty nice for mid-August," Wilmoth said.
