Humid with a few showers today, then some steadier rain tomorrow

There is the potential for some localized flooding since we may be dealing with tropical downpours in parts of the state. That's up from 67 percent just last week. Coastal Maine is now in a full-on drought.

Friday marks the 24th straight day without rain for Charlotte and most of the WBTV viewing area outside of the mountains.

While the storm threat will be low, there could be a rumble of thunder over the next few days.

Tuesday: Clouds give way to a bit of sunshine with warm temps. A line of showers will push through New England in the morning into the early afternoon.

Tuesday will have clouds and sun with a shower possible.

Wet weather moves in late Saturday as a cool front moves across the area. Sunday the strong ridge to our east will steer "Nate" through MS and Alabama. The more east and south you are, clouds will hang tough longer leading to highs "only" in the upper 60s & low 70s.

Warm weather during the second half of September and so far this month has slowed the progress of fall color.

Much of the afternoon will be dry, flawless for Columbus Day weekend festivities.

The best color is over western ME and part of NY this weekend. By next weekend, we will have sunny skies with temperatures in the mid to upper 80s.

FRIDAY NIGHT: Clear conditions will be enjoyed for most of the night but low clouds may return late. Highs: Upper 70s to low 80s. This ushers in more warmth and humidity.

Sunday will be mostly cloudy with a few showers possible. The day's record high in Burlington is 77°, our forecast high is 80°.

A weak disturbance will approach the area later Wednesday into Wednesday night, likely accompanied by some scattered rain showers.

Thursday will be drier, but skies will remain mainly cloudy with highs in the low 70s. Skies will become partly cloudy for Tuesday and Wednesday with a chance for afternoon showers and thunderstorms. The storm is caught between strong low and high pressure.
