Drier Air Settling into the Region

AM Headlines:

  • Tropical Storm Bill formed off East Coast
    • No direct threat to U.S. mainland
  • Mild Start
  • Less humid with seasonable temps through mid-week
Discussion:
Drier air will filter into the region today. Highs will still be a bit above average, reaching the upper 80s this afternoon. High pressure will keep rain chances at bay with temps back to seasonable highs Wednesday. Less muggy with sunny skies through Thursday. Tropical moisture will be streaming into the region late in the week with temps reaching the low 90s again Friday. Rain and storm chances will increase this weekend. How much rain we see will be dependent on this low in the gulf and where exactly it tracks.
Tropics Update:
Tropical Storm Bill has formed off the North Carolina coast. It is moving off to the northeast at 24 mph and won’t cause direct impacts from the U.S. mainland. This storm will likely dissipate as it hits colder water off Nova Scotia late Wednesday. Still watching for the development of a low in the Gulf. This will likely become a tropical depression late in the week. Regardless of development it will likely bring rain and storms to the northern gulf coast by Friday and could be bringing rain to the Carolinas by this weekend. A third area off the African coast is also being monitored.
