Rough Surf Tuesday
Rough Surf Tuesday
Sunshine Low Humidty
Hot Wednesday Cool Thursday Friday
We had a cold front move through on Monday which lowered the humidity and now as we look ahead, Tuesday looks like a great day with plenty of sunshine, comfortable humidity and temperatures in the low to mid 80s. It would be a great day for the beach except that rough surf will develop Tuesday and last for the rest of the week. We have major Hurricane Gaston churning away and waves from Gaston are beginning to hit the coast. Additional impacts will come as the week wears on with 2 other tropical systems eventually passing offshore. Plus we have a strong high building in from the north Thursday and Friday which will add a bit of wind to the equation.
Radars are queit. They should remain so through Wednesday afternoon. Late Wednesday with the next cold front there could be a late day isolated shower or thunderstorm. After that Thursday through Sunday look great with sunshine and highs in the 70s to near 80. Nights will be in the 50s. No rain is forecast. Monday Labor Day looks dry for the time being and warmer with highs back into the 80s.
This is a nice shot of cooler than normal air that is moving in as shown by the GFS model. It might be a shade overdone but it will mean for pleasant weather conditions Thursday through at least Saturday.
