The "lingering low" as we'll call it remains overhead continuing to provide lots of rainfall for parts of North Carolina today. Throughout the day today and tomorrow the low will shift and push north and east as a trough from the west begins sliding in. Shower chances remain limited today (similar to yesterday) with the bulk of rainfall for northeastern TN.
We will touch on the all important Memorial Day forecast, but first, Friday will likely be a wet one for most of the region. Widespread shower activity is likely the first half of the day before some clearing takes place overnight. To start Memorial Day weekend, partly cloudy with afternoon shower activity a bit more likely Saturday than on Sunday and Monday. Nonetheless, we are going to see a very summer-like pattern with warm and MUGGY conditions, which will likely lead to afternoon convection -> afternoon pop up showers & thunderstorms. Keep in mind chances look to be a bit more organized for Saturday than Sunday but any shower activity should only be during the daytime hours.
Getting a glimpse at the weekend, warm temperatures are expected to return. With winds and the general flow coming from the south, warm and humid temperatures will be around through early next week. Sunday high's could feel closer to the lower 90's when we account for the humidity.
Another round of scattered showers will arrive the first half of the day tomorrow before a better shot at sunshine sticks around for the weekend. More details can be found below:
