After a pleasant and warm Sunday afternoon, rain chances return to start the week. Parts of the Lumberton area are already starting to see some of those earlier batches of storms.
We’re looking at a Monday with a mix of sun and clouds and the chance for a few isolated showers. Storms will develop in the afternoon and into the evening, some could be strong. The main threat for severe storms is in the Pee Dee with the main threat being damaging winds.
Heading into the Lumberton area, there is a chance for places to see half-inch size hail as well as lightening strikes. Strong winds, heavy downpours and hail can be expected; and an isolated tornado can’t be ruled out.
Along with rain chances, temperatures will also be increasing again with higher levels of humidity. Heat index values could reach the mid-90s on Tuesday. We’ll continue to see more chances for rain through mid-week with a cold front moving through late on Wednesday.
Storm chances move out for the second half of the week and temps drop to below average Thursday and Friday. We’ll see lots of sunshine for the weekend as temperatures start to rebound, back into the 80s by Sunday
