waking up this morning to a little bit of rain that's pushing into western north Carolina so far this morning, we've seen some showers from salisbury back down towards charlotte as this looks like it's moving northward. We're not seeing the northern extent actually advancing. So the flow is coming out of the southwest in the south, but it's not really pushing that much more rain farther north, so it's unlikely that we're going to see very much rain out of the system this morning, but we will have the potential for thunderstorms later this afternoon. There's seven a.m. On future cast. You can see those showers coming and going back to our west by lunchtime. Some of this may start to skirt our western counties. So we'll be talking about Roxborough Durham, maybe down towards Siler City in southern Pies and then later in the afternoon, depending on how much sun we see breaking through, we could have a few isolated thunderstorms that pop up will continue to see the influence of a coastal low bringing some moisture in, but it's also not likely to have a big impact on us. We take a look at our buggy meter, which is way up there and steamy tropical. It's right there on the border line, so it definitely feels sticky. The center of circulation from uh the remnants of Yeah of Nicholas are way down there in uh Louisiana right now and we're seeing a lot of moisture that's streaming up from that, but the center of circulation is well away from it. We're also looking at that low that's sitting offshore and that low of course will continue to stream northward whether or not it becomes a tropical depression, it won't really matter. The impact will be the same, which will be just a few scattered thunderstorms this afternoon. You can see that they're on future cast And then the low moves up the coast with some heavy surf and some high rip current danger. But most of the rain with this system stays offshore. A little breezy, little blustery. We may see a little bit of wind tomorrow, especially in our northeastern counties. There's 5 30. We have the chance of a few scattered thunderstorms and then that begins to pull away. It's not going to take our tropical moisture with it though, it's still going to be rather muggy through the weekend. So today and tomorrow we're looking at recurrent danger moderate to high risks and high surf on the coast and so on and off showers and storms. But we're really not looking at a flooding threat headed to the beach is over the weekend. You want to watch out for that rip current danger all the way through sunday as a system moves off, we have a slight chance of afternoon storms, typical summer weather mid seventies to mid eighties, mid seventies to mid eighties in the mountains to and also typical summer weather there, it'll be on the warm side and we'll have a chance of afternoon and evening storms today will raise our best chance of storms all week at 40%. It drops back to 30% friday and saturday and then 20% sunday. And then after that it looks like we may end up with some much nicer weather a little drier, little cooler. We start to lose our humidity a bit. By the time we get to say Tuesday and Wednesday soon it should feel a little bit more like fall. Of course we still have a very active tropics or watching another system that is on the verge of becoming a tropical depression and most likely a tropical storm, it's off the coast of Africa. We have updated computer models to share with you on tv this morning about where it could be headed.
