After a beautiful weekend, it is time for rain to come back into the forecast. Tropical Storm Alberto was off the Georgia coast Sunday and brought rain to the Georgia and Florida coasts. It will take a turn and begin moving to the northeast on Monday. The NC and SC coast will see showers, rip currents and gusty winds the first part of the week. However, the storm shouldn't have much of an effect on the Triad.
T.S. Alberto should move to the northeast but isn't likely to strengthen. The atmosphere and ocean waters aren't helping the storm. The official National Hurricane Center forecast keeps Alberto as a tropical storm with winds 45 mph or less.
Our next weather maker is a cold front now over Tennessee. Monday, the combination of the approaching front and the heating of the day, will bring a 30% chance of afternoon and evening showers and t-storms.
The front looks to stall over North Carolina Tuesday and Wednesday, bringing the best rain chances of the week. There's a 50% chance each day. Even though it doesn't look like an all day event, there could be rain at any time.
By the end of the week and through Memorial Day Weekend, it should be dry. It will also feel like summer... the first 'unofficial weekend of summer". Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s, with sun.
