The extreme rainfall is slowly receding into memory, and the rivers have all finally receded back into their banks around the area. The weather will continue to allow drying out for the next several days. The dry, warm, and now humid stretch of weather continues.
Moving forward, a blocking high pressure pattern continues. The jet stream winds are directing storms to the northwest of us for the next several days. Plenty of sunshine will continue through the weekend and for the King Apple Parade on Sunday. However, while our weather has been quiet, the tropics have been very active as Hurricane Florence tracks toward the southeastern coastline.
Hurricanes and other stronger tropical systems tend to slow up the overall weather patterns over the United States, and weaken incoming weather fronts from the west; one reason why we are expecting dry weather to continue through to Monday.
