Above-normal temps for now, cooler by end of week

Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -

Good evening, everyone! I'm First Alert Chief Meteorologist Jerry Jackson. Here's your forecast:

TONIGHT:  Hot, humid conditions have created an unstable atmosphere tonight. However, without a "trigger" (such as a cold front or storm system), thunderstorms will have a hard time developing. Expect partly cloudy skies with a 20% chance of overnight thunderstorms and lows in the 70's.

TUESDAY:  The weather pattern will remain unchanged tomorrow, so expect sunshine and heat- along with a 30% chance of summertime thunderstorms. Highs will reach the 90's inland, 80's at the coast.

A LOOK AHEAD:  An approaching cold front will bring a slightly better chance of afternoon storms by Wednesday and Thursday. A second front will arrive by the end of the weekend, bringing autumn-like temperatures for early next week. The chance of rain will increase by Sunday and Monday.

TROPICS: Tropical Depression #5 has formed in the southern Gulf of Mexico. The system will likely remain weak and head for Mexico. Elsewhere, tropical storm formation is not expected in the next 48 hours. For an even more complete update, visit the WNCT 9 First Alert Hurricane Center by clicking HERE.
