Temperatures will dip into the low 70s overnight with scattered showers that  will carry into Thursday morning.

The front will stall over North Carolina. We will start Thursday with clouds and showers. Clouds will start to clear and rain chances will drop through the day. Cooler air will move in behind the front. High pressure will build in which will dry us out. Expect highs in the low 80s tomorrow, so much more comfortable.

Partly cloudy and dry to end the work week. Highs will top out right around 80 degrees. Enjoy the cooler weather, because we’re cranking the heat up.

Saturday will be warmer with highs in the mid 80s under mostly sunny skies. Sunday will be even warmer with temperatures warming to near 90.
