Saturday August 18th, 2018

Tuesday begins on a dry note across the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry, with a less than 20% chance of a pop-up morning shower.

Temperatures are rain-cooled, in the lower to mid-70s, following yesterday's downpours. But, it won't last long. Temps warm to near 90° by noon; topping out in the low to mid-90s between 2 and 4 p.m. Beaches should stay just shy of 90°.

As we heat up, clouds grow taller and a few will become showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. Rain is forecast to remain isolated, to widely scattered, today.

However, whatever develops will produce heavy rain and frequent lightning.

A normal summer weather pattern remains in-place through Friday. It'll be hot each day, with high temperatures in the low to mid-90s. It will feel even hotter, though, with an afternoon heat index between 102° and 106°.

Isolated to scattered showers and storms are possible each afternoon.

A greater shot at rain enters the forecast this weekend as a cold front attempts to stall in the vicinity of the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry. We'll keep you updated!

Best,

Cutter


 

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue moving in from the west late this afternoon into the evening, which could impact your evening plans. A strong storm or two will be possible with brief damaging wind and heavy rain. Make sure you have alerts turned on in the WTOC weather app!

Lingering showers continue into the mid-evening, but we will begin to dry out overnight into Sunday morning. Scattered thunderstorms return Sunday afternoon, with the potential for isolated severe storms that could once again produce brief damaging wind in addition to heavy rain.  I am not concerned about flooding at this time.

Monday will be drier with highs in the lower 90s. Although coverage will be low, an isolated strong storm will still be possible during the afternoon, but these are typically short-lived in the expected atmospheric conditions expected on Monday.

The rest of the week's forecast looks much wetter after Tuesday. This is all dependent on the location of a stalled front, which as of now, appears as though it will bring us elevated rain chances for the second half of the work week. We could also see dew points drop a few degrees Thursday and Friday, meaning the air will be more comfortable and less sticky.

I also believe our daily isolated severe threat will decrease Wednesday through the end of the week.

Due to increased rain chances, our afternoon highs have the potential to dip back into the upper 80s versus lower 90s heading into next weekend!

Stay tuned for updates in the WTOC weather app.
