Forecast Last Updated at Wednesday, August 31, 2016 at 7:08PM

Still Warm, Shower Chances Increase

An approaching front will drum up widely scattered PM showers and thundershowers Wednesday evening and again Thursday as it passes Thursday night. However, the front's southward progression will be slowed by tropical storm Hermine. Friday is cooler, but clouds hang tough through the day. It will become breezy and scattered showers are expected on the western fringes of Hermine. Labor Day weekend is about as good as it gets, ample sunshine and refreshingly crisp air holds until early next week.

Forecast Discussion

Wednesday evening's discussion starts with the Tropical Atlantic. Tropical storm Hermine will strengthen on its way to North Florida, arriving there early Friday. It then crosses into SE Georgia during the day. The cyclone is now expected to track a little farther inland, crossing the South Carolina Midlands Friday night and Raleigh metro area on Saturday. Most modelling keeps it as a tropical storm prior to landfall; however, a period of time as a Category 1 hurricane is not out of the question. Hermine is expected to become either “sub-tropical” or “extra-tropical” during its trek across the Carolinas. However, it’s hybrid nature will maintain a strong low pressure system even if the well inland track verifies.

Widely scattered showers and thunderstorms will linger a while into Wednesday evening, followed by partly cloudy skies.

The front passes through Thursday night contributing to another afternoon of widely scattered thundershowers. The front stalls just to our south Friday as tropical storm Hermine is in the process of roughing up the deep south. Based on the more inland track, we'll keep cloudy skies and the mention of a passing shower Friday. We'll also increase northeast winds into the breezy range later in the day.

It's smooth sailing this weekend as modified Canadian high pressure takes control. Lower humidity and noticeably cooler days prevail until early next week. This is the Labor Day weekend forecast you dreamed about. The downside, rain chances aren't promising in the foreseeable future (beyond Friday) and unseasonably warm air begins to return Tuesday.
