A few afternoon storms / Watching Florence

Posted: Sep 12, 2018 5:09 AM -04:00 Updated:

Good Wednesday.  After a really comfortable day yesterday we will see the humidity creeping back up this afternoon, and temps will be a couple of degrees higher as well.  Look for highs in the mid to upper 80s this afternoon with a few afternoon storms popping up during the late afternoon and evening hours.  The chance for storms this afternoon is 30%.  

Late tonight we will be partly cloudy with temps dropping into the low 70s.  Thursday will be much the same, though a little warmer as the high reaches about 90 degrees.  I think we will see a few pop up showers and storms Thursday as well.

Friday through Sunday will be about the same.  Highs will be near 90, it will be muggy, and we won't see much in the way of rain save a stray shower or two.

Florence is expected to make landfall on the east coast Thursday night, bringing 10"-20" of rain to the coast of the Carolinas through the weekend.  By Monday the remnants of Florence may bring us some showers and storms.  We may even see some lingering into Tuesday.
