Hot Start to Workweek

Sunshine and winds out of the southwest will fuel another shot of summer to kick off the workweek.

We still haven’t cracked 90º yet this September, but this Monday may have something to say about that. Expect a modest rise in temperatures this week, fueled by plentiful sunshine and warm winds out the southwest. While humidity levels will also be on the incline, conditions won’t be too uncomfortable through midweek. More rain chances return for the back half of the week as a rainmaking system slides in from the west. We’ll also need to watch the tropics carefully over the coming days.

Tropical Storm Nicholas has formed in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico. Nicholas will slowly skirt along the coasts of Mexico and Texas over the next few days before making landfall late Tuesday into Wednesday. Leftover moisture from the system could end up over the Carolinas late this week, but we may need to keep a closer eye on something north of the Bahamas. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is monitoring a potential system a few hundred miles southeast of the Carolinas, which could end up close to our coast by the end of the weekend. Stay tuned for updates.
