A stalled front along the coast has apparently decided to do the Wilson Times area a favor and drift farther eastward into the Atlantic than expected.

The result is a suddenly reduced chance of very heavy rainfall here compared with the weather models’ outlook when the podcast was recorded.

Now, except in isolated areas, rainfall totals Tuesday afternoon and overnight are more likely to be in the 1 to 1 ½-inch range. Showers and thunderstorms will then become the more typical summertime variety through Saturday, with more sunshine. That had been the forecast for areas closer to the Triad.

Afternoon high temperatures are still expected to hold well below normal, getting only into the mid- to upper 70s Tuesday and Wednesday and then the mid-80s through Saturday.

A return to more typical summertime conditions starting Sunday may well be followed by the heat index reaching 100 degrees Tuesday afternoon.
