NC WEATHER: Hotter Thursday before cooler weekend

Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

The month of August has had plenty of storms and very few really hot days, that trend will reverse Thursday and Friday.

The Triangle failed to make it up to 90 again this month Wednesday afternoon.  The high in the Triangle was 89 while Fayetteville made it up to 92 Wednesday.  The Triangle has still only hit 90 once so far this month.  The record for fewest 90 degree days in a month at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport is one in 1971.

Except for a slight risk of an early evening shower or storm, overnight will be partly cloudy and muggy with overnight lows around 71.

Thursday will be the hottest day of the week.  With a light westerly flow and a warm front to our north, central North Carolina will reach the mid 90s in many areas.  Skies will be partly sunny and precipitation chances will be very low.  Although a stray shower or storm can't be ruled out, most areas will stay dry.

Friday will still be hot as all fronts stay to our north.  With a mixture of clouds and some sun, highs will reach into the lower 90s.  A couple showers and storms will be possible in the afternoon and evening.

By Saturday a cold front will approach central North Carolina, and with it a couple showers and storms will be possible.  Skies will have a mix of clouds and some sun, but highs will drop into the 80s.

On Sunday, the front should settle to our south and drier air will start to build in from the northeast.  Skies should be partly sunny with highs around 83.

Monday and Tuesday are looking nice, with mostly to partly sunny skies and highs in the lower to middle 80s.
