Weather update from WTOC meteorologist John Wetherbee

We say goodbye to Alberto, now post-tropical and passing the North Carolina coast. The next 2012 storm name is Beryl, but there's nothing brewing out there right now.

What's next for us? Still more locally heavy, late-day storms. A weak cold front crossing Georgia will stall and dissipate over our area tomorrow and Thursday, which keeps the storm risk in place both afternoons.

A sea breeze will push a front inland this afternoon. Scattered showers and storms will develop, and some cells could become severe with damaging winds, hail and locally heavy rainfall.

It will be drier, warmer and muggier for the holiday weekend.
