Temperatures soar ahead of a cold front for a good portion of the state, and the 70s return for Eastern and Central areas. Happy Sunday, North Carolina! A mid-level short wave and an occluded front will bring widespread showers and even some embedded thunderstorms to most of the state through early to mid-afternoon; coverage will be 80-90% of the state. I expect the vast majority to get wet. The best chance to see rain will be from early this morning until early afternoon; a dry slot will work in from the southwest and push eat through the afternoon, shutting of the rain from west to east. We should all be dry by mid to late afternoon, most areas west earlier. Highs will soar into the mid-upper 60s and low-mid 70s for all areas. An isolated strong to severe storm will be possible. It will also be a very windy day regardless, so tie down the light objects. Wind gusts up to 45MPH are possible in spots even higher across the mountains.
