After the return of summer-like conditions Wednesday, a cold front will drop through the region Thursday from the north. We'll look for a few isolated showers and storms developing along it through this afternoon, but will we receive another cool down behind it?

  • Thursday will be a hot, humid day ahead of a cold front.
  • A isolated severe storm is possible.
  • Frontal boundary will stall on Friday. 

Thursday will feature a hot, humid day ahead of the aforementioned cold front that will push through by Thursday afternoon and evening. Although the majority of us will likely stay dry through the day with the passage of this front, a few isolated showers and storms will likely develop along it for some locations -- particularly in the mountains. Most storms should just be of the garden variety type, but an isolated strong or possible low-end severe storm may pop. Temperatures will soar into the upper 80s and low 90s for daytime highs.

Behind the front, we shouldn't get much of a cool down other than maybe a few degrees. The frontal boundary will stall just to the south of North Carolina Friday, and may provide the focus for a few more isolated showers and storms for areas nearest to the South Carolina border Friday afternoon. Father's Day weekend will feature additional small storm chances with very hot conditions for the actual day of. Highs will be in the mid to upper 90s range from Sunday to the start of the work week!
