Gray Days Here to Stay
Don't expect a whole lot of sunshine over the next few days.
Clouds and rain have made themselves at home in the Carolinas on this Thursday, and don’t expect the dreary conditions to move out anytime soon. The remnants of former Hurricane Nicholas have collapsed over the Southeast, leaving us to deal with quite a bit of leftover moisture. While the next few days won’t be washouts, they certainly won’t be stunners, either.
Expect mostly cloudy skies and scattered showers through the weekend, as temperatures struggle to get out of the 70s and lower 80s. Portions of the High Country may be stuck in the 60s over the next few days, as well. Some clearing is possible during the afternoons and evenings in the Piedmont, which may allow for localized “hot spots” around the viewing area at times. A cold front may arrive by Monday, which could flush out some moisture for next week.
The National Hurricane Center (NHC) continues to monitor an area of storms just off the Carolina coastline. Right now, the NHC is giving this area a 70% chance of development over the next two days. While impacts should remain minimal at the beach, the rip current risk will remain high through the weekend.
