Mild end of the week, chance of storms Sunday

Looks like our work week ends on a springlike note! We have southerly winds around high pressure to credit for this nice day with highs almost 10 degrees above our normal 54 degree high. We're looking at 63-67 this afternoon with high clouds.
Clouds will increase this evening ahead of an approaching cold front which will pass over the state overnight with barely a sprinkle. Lows will be near 40.
Saturday is back to the 50s as high pressure, this time to our north, swings in some easterly winds and taps into a cooler airmass.
Sunday is our chance for measurable rain as a storm system from the four corners region of the Southwest US makes a beeline from Texas to Michigan and intensifies to a pretty decent storm. What that means for us is an increase in southerly winds, more moisture and warmer weather once again.
We're looking Sunday for cloudy skies, highs near 60 with developing showers and even a chance for t-storms, some of which could be strong to severe especially along and east of highway 1 (meaning a line from Henderson southward through Cary, continuing south through Sanford to Rockingham , then proceeding east from that for our area of concern). We'll continue to monitor that for you and keep you updated. Monday will have falling temps after early highs in the upper 50s.

Have a great Friday!
