Thursday cold front brings storms, little less heat

Updated:

90s returned to most of central North Carolina Wednesday, but a cold front will help drop temperatures and more heavy rain Thursday.

The last time the Triangle saw a high temperature in the 90s was July 15 when we hit 94. Wednesday, July 23 the high was 92 with a heat index of 98.  Fayetteville made it up to 90, which is the normal high for this time of year.

Overnight will be mostly dry with partly cloudy skies and an early morning low Thursday down to 72.

On Thursday a cold front will approach, so there will be numerous afternoon showers and storms around.  There is a slight risk for a strong gusty storm with the cold front. Otherwise it will be humid with clouds and some sun, highs will be in the upper 80s to near 90.

Drier air will try to move in behind the front on Friday and Saturday.  Skies will be partly sunny on Friday with nothing more than a stray shower or thundershower in areas south of the Triangle.  Highs on Friday will be about 2 to 4 degrees cooler than Thursday, so look for a high of 87 on Friday.  Saturday looks like the driest day, with mostly to partly sunny skies and a high near 90.

Sunday will be hot with a high around 93, skies will be partly sunny with an isolated PM storm possible.  Another cold front will approach on Monday, so look for some scattered showers and storms with highs in the lower 90s. 

Behind the front on Tuesday, skies will clear and highs will be in the middle 80s.
