.DISCUSSION...
BERMUDA HIGH PRESSURE WILL LOOSEN ITS GRIP AS THE WEEK PROGRESSES...
ALLOWING ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO DEVELOP
MID AND LATE WEEK. THE RIDGE WILL BUILD BACK ACROSS THE EASTERN
CAROLINAS FOR THE WEEKEND...LESSENING THE RISK FOR RAINFALL AND
INCREASING THE HEAT.

FOG POTENTIAL FOR TONIGHT...LOW TO MODERATE.
