THE PLEASANT WEATHER CONTINUES FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS… A SLIGHT COOL DOWN IS EXPECTED ON THURSDAY… METEOROLOGISTS ARE GOING TO BE WATCHING THE AREA OFF THE SOUTHEAST COAST AS A LOW PRESSURE IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP AND MEANDER IN THAT AREA

The weather this time of year can be so beautiful. Humidity levels can be still low enough that we can enjoy temperatures in the 80’s. That will be the case today (Tuesday). A very slow moving backdoor cold front will be approaching the area on Wednesday. This front will eventually wash out as it moves through the southern Mid-Atlantic States, but there will be enough of a northeast breeze behind the front on Thursday to lower our temperatures in the afternoon to the 70’s instead of the 80’s as we are seeing today. There may be a shower in some spots but widespread rain is not expected with this weak frontal passage. The highest chance of rain will be to our north… Meanwhile, a low pressure system is expected to develop off the Southeast Coast on Wednesday. Exactly where this system eventually goes is not certain at this time. Some models have it drifting northward and then they turn it westward into the GA or SC coast. It is even possible that the low pressure system attains tropical or sub-tropical storm characteristics, but that is not a very high probability at this time. Either way, it is expected to kick up the surf, especially in the coastal waters off NC and points south. As far as the storm’s impact on our weather, meteorologists do not believe at this time that we will see any direct impacts from it. However, keep in mind that this forecast can change if the low pressure area moves further north. So, stay tuned… Hurricane season begins on June 1st in the North Atlantic Basin, so it’s not that far off… Thanks for reading and have a great day!
