THIS EVENING: Quiet, dry evening with plenty of clouds to start but eventually they slowly erode through the evening. Temperatures will fall through the 60’s quickly.
MORNING: Morning sun and still quite feeling like a fall chill as lows once again tumble to the mid 50’s.
TOMORROW: With still plenty of cooler air aloft, clouds will once again bubble up in the afternoon mixing with sunshine. Only an isolated threat for a shower or thunderstorm late in the day as a spoke of energy swings through the upper level trough that hangs around over the east coast. Highs will continue well below average in the mid to upper 70s.
OUTLOOK: A weak cold front looks to slide in and dissipate Thursday and while it will be weakening it could still trigger an isolated shower or thunderstorm. Highs will be a tad warmer as winds shift more southerly bringing us back to the lower 80’s. Frontal boundary that pushed off the coast Sunday night is stationary for much of the week and looks to inch closer to the coast which would set up a return flow. More moisture streams up from the south-southeast Friday into the weekend while the upper level trough starts to open up. Humidity will go up and temperatures should remain in the low through Sunday. Our storm chances, while only about a 30 to 40 percent chance will be possible Friday through the weekend. Monday and Tuesday temperatures warm slightly more to the mid and upper 80s as ridging tries to build in. Rain chances are minimal at this point.
TROPIC UPDATE: We’ll be watching in the coming days the development of our next tropical system which would be Bertha. Models have it approaching the Carolina coast in the middle to late part of next week!
