Steady, Sunny Warm-Up Builds In

Rain chances remain few and far-between while high pressure dominates the Mid-Atlantic.

Happy Friday! We’re closing out the shortened holiday workweek on a beautiful note, as sunny skies and comfy highs prevail across the Carolinas. While the sunshine will stick around, the fall-like temperatures will not. A steady diet of winds out of the southwest will bump temperatures back above average through the first half of the weekend before returning to the 90s by the start of next week. More rain chances arrive by midweek.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is watching an area of low pressure currently located on the southeastern side of the Yucatán Peninsula. While development may not happen immediately, chances are that we’ll have a new named storm in the western Gulf of Mexico by next week. While it won’t be a direct threat to the Carolinas, we’ll need to watch carefully as we head deeper into September. The next name on the list is Nicholas.
