Friday Evening, August 17th, 2018

Lots of sun to start our afternoon but showers and storms are expected to develop.  Widespread severe storms are not expected but locally heavy rain and gusty winds are certainly possible.  Highs 88-93.  The storm threat should quickly decrease after sunset and we will be dry overnight with daybreak temps in the low to mid 70s.  Saturday and Sunday will see more of the same with highs 88-93 and scattered afternoon showers and storms developing.  In the tropics Ernesto’s quickly moving to the northeast over much cooler water and is expected to become extratropical later today.  Invest 99L in the southern Atlantic Ocean continues to very disorganized.  The National Hurricane Center only gives a 10% chance of development as it moves into the Caribbean Sea.

-Turley-

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
