High pressure moving across the region is the reason for this spectacular late July day. It will remain partly cloudy and pleasant tonight and tomorrow…although it will be a bit warmer tomorrow. On Friday, skies will be partly cloudy and it will become a bit muggier. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible during the afternoon as a frontal system drifts northward and westward from the Carolina Coastal area. Warm and muggy conditions with possible thunderstorms will be the weather story throughout the weekend.
