Scattered showers overnight, clouds may be around for a while this week


Tracking a coastal low late next week...

TONIGHT: Stray shower or storm overnight. Low 64.

MONDAY: Mostly cloudy and mild. Scattered light showers (especially morning). High 78.

TUESDAY: Mostly cloudy, stray showers. High 75.

Today was warm and dry with high temperatures near 80°! One round of showers and even a few thunderstorms rolled through late this evening. Another batch of moisture arrives tonight through early Monday morning. Even with this second round of more steady rain we only expect a tenth of an inch or less of total rain for the locations that see it.

Monday through Wednesday feature periods of cloud cover, but the best chance for steady rain is likely early Monday morning. Then recurring chances for some light showers and drizzle are possible with temperatures remaining in the low 70s during the day.

By the end of the week and next weekend a coastal low and moisture should be just to our south over the Carolinas. At this time we don’t expect any major impacts with the moisture likely not moving far northward. Some model guidance suggests any coastal impact from rain locally will hold off until this upcoming weekend- possibly by Sunday. The timing of this rain has been hard to pin down, so this is not a very confident forecast for next weekend and could improve with time.

We can definitely bank on some cloudier periods of weather Thursday-Sunday with a better chance of showers by Sunday. We will keep track of the changes in the weather pattern and post updates online, plus the latest 7-day on-air.
