More Clouds than Sun; Few Scattered Storms Today

GREENVILLE, N.C. - Good Wednesday to you! I'm First Alert Meteorologist Patrick Ellis. Here's your evening forecast:

TODAY: A frontal boundary is tracking through the region this morning producing a few showers and thunderstorms for the morning commute. Not everyone will get wet through today as the clouds will linger with a few breaks here and there. Scattered storms will flare up on the order of 30-40% for the afternoon hours. Highs will manage the mid-upper 70s to around 80 degrees.

A few leftover storms will be possible as a wave of energy works through the area during the afternoon hours; most will diminish by the latter portion of the evening. Overnight lows will dip into the low-mid 60s inland; upper 60s and lower 70s at the coast. Patchy areas of dense fog may be realized.

THURSDAY: Low clouds and fog will break for partly sunny skies for the most of the day. We'll hang on to the chance for a passing shower but not much more than that. Highs will stay comfortable, in 70s in all areas.

LATE WEEK:  An autumn-like pattern will stay with us Thursday through Sunday. Due to an onshore flow, we can partly, to at times mostly cloudy skies with highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s with a chance for rain, primarily for the coastal areas by late Saturday and Sunday, though as of now, it doesn't look to be a washout.

A warm push of southwesterly wind by the late period ahead of another frontal boundary that will slide into the region by Tuesday or Wednesday. Temperatures look to take a dive as Canadian high pressure looks to settle into the Great Lakes region just as we enter the fall season.

TROPICS: Hurricane Edouard peaked as a Category 3 hurricane Tuesday. The system continues to weaken, and will never threaten the East Coast of the United States. For a complete tropical update, visit the WNCT 9 First Alert Hurricane Center by clicking HERE.
