Good afternoon everyone. I'm WRL. Meteorologist mike maze in the WRL severe weather center. With your digital forecast for this thursday afternoon, wow, what a day Blue sky Here to look at Durham, the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. The Durham Bulls will be playing the Memphis Cardinals later this evening. They've had some fine weather for the past two games, but whether this evening looks pretty good as well, the dew points are dropping this afternoon. So at it already, you right now. The two points 59 57 for Roxborough and South Hill. That's the measure of the moisture in the atmosphere, but some of our southern counties still in the Dew Points range sixties and seventies, so not all that less humid there. But hopefully by the end of the day the humidity drops. Fear locations as well, temperatures out there with the new points. There you go. 59 is the Dew point at R. D. U. 64 at Fayetteville 71. And clinton temperatures not that bad, 81 at Goldsborough 81. Clinton 83. Right now in Durham 79 at Roxborough. The Durham Bulls forecast mostly clear sky if not completely clear this evening 82 by 7 78 by eight o'clock. And again with low humidity, should feel pretty good. Overnight is quiet. We had a low this morning of 62. We expect about 63 in the morning, partly cloudy skies to begin our friday. We made it to the end of the work week. Now the weekend kind of iffy, especially for the day. On saturday, we still have our stationary front at the coast. The focus of the moisture is offshore, but we have an upper level trough over the plains and you can see the trough from about Dallas up to ST louis to Omaha that will move to the east and that's what's going to be here on saturday. By the time we get to sunday will be on the backside of the trough where they're sinking air. So sunday looks like a pretty good day, but saturday, not so much, especially the first part of the day. Tomorrow looks pretty good, 87 88 fade. We'll start to see increasing clouds by the end of the day and a chance for a shower or storm overnight tomorrow night. But especially for the day. On saturday, Here's a look at future cast. We have a 60% chance for showers and thunderstorms at least through noontime. Then drop into a 40% chance in the afternoon and Saturday night may end up being dry 80 for the high in Raleigh 83 and Fayetteville down east of Wellington about 84. Now, this is just a snapshot of what it could look like at noontime tomorrow. So heading down east toward the coast, you say, Hey, not a whole lot. This will eventually get there in the afternoon. So our coastal areas will have showers and storms in the afternoon. So tonight it's pleasant 63 in Raleigh 64. Fayetteville 58 at Roxborough. Tomorrow. Here is your planner 68 by eight a.m. 83 at lunchtime 87 by four o'clock. And by that point there's about a 10% chance for a shower is about a 40% chance for a shower or storm heading into the evening. Tomorrow and tomorrow night. It will be a warmer day tomorrow, mid to upper eighties, the highest 85 clinton 84 Goldsborough 87 here in Raleigh, your three day forecast 80 on saturday with showers and storms likely sunday, 20% chance for shower are high at 89 sunday should be a little less human. Now. Coming up before on WRL News on Fox 50 Cat Cable is going to show you what's happening in the tropics. The system we're watching yesterday that about 40% chance of developing is now up to 70% chance. So it's looking like a depression will form. May even see tropical storm fred cat. We'll be tracking that in the four o'clock hour. I'll have more about that. Coming up at five o'clock. We'll have a look at future cast for the day, saturday show you how you can plan around the rain. That's all starting at 4:00 on WRL and at five o'clock we will be on WRL. But again at four o'clock it's on Fox 50 due to the olympic coverage. I'll be back around nine o'clock tonight with my next digital forecast. I'll see you then have a great afternoon and take care
