Cooler and less humid… We will see a few leftover clouds this morning but overall sunshine for today. Highs will return to the mid 70s this afternoon, near normal. With lower humidity it will feel much more spring-like. We are tracking another chance for showers and storms on Thursday as an area of low pressure slides across the Carolinas.

The chance for severe storms increases for areas farther south. Rain chances will clear out early Friday. The holiday weekend is looking dry with temperatures on a warming trend from the upper 60s on Saturday to the low 80s on Monday.

Today: A Few Clouds, Cooler. Highs in the mid 70s. Winds: N/NE 5-15

Tonight: Partly Cloudy. Lows in the mid 50s. Winds: NE 5-10

Tomorrow: Mostly Cloudy, Scattered Showers/Storms(50%). Highs near 70. Winds: E 5-15
