Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast

Increasing clouds overnight with a slight chance of a shower, especially across North Carolina. Lows will range throughout the upper 50s and the 60s.

Humidity will start to build on Labor Day with highs in the mid 80s under a mix of sun and clouds. Most areas should remain dry as high pressure remains in control, but an isolated shower or storm is not out of the question thanks to a developing disturbance across the Outer Banks. Lows will fall into the low 70s. Rain chances will go up to a 30 percent chance on Tuesday. Humidity will be on the rise as well. Expect skies to be partly cloudy with highs in the mid 80s but will feel closer to 90 degrees with the humidity.

We'll enter an unsettled stretch of weather starting late Tuesday and it will continue through Saturday. Expect scattered showers and storms to be possible every day, with the best chance being during the afternoon and evening hours. Temperatures will trend in the mid 80s with dew points in the low and mid 70s, making temperatures feel like the low 90s.
