Locally, we are going to have some great weather over the next few days. As promised, we started this morning with some cool temps. They were mainly in the 50s and 60s. Today we have a cool front stalling out to our south. High pressure is building in.
Dew points have dropped to the 50s to near 60. So it feels very dry and comfortable outside. We’ll have lots of sun today with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s. There will be a nice breeze out of the northeast. The weather looks pretty good for the ECSC today and tomorrow. Waves will be to 2 ft. Just wish the sets would clean up a little. We’ll see.
Tomorrow the front will bump north just a little bit. This should have little effect on the area’s weather. However, it could bring an isolated shower to the Outer Banks. Otherwise, tomorrow should have more nice weather across the region. We’ll be partly cloudy with highs in the low 80s. That boundary will fall apart by Sunday. So we’ll have quiet weather. Skies will be partly cloudy. high temps will be in the upper 80s. Sunday will still be fairly dry. However, the heat and humidity will build up into early next week. Highs will push back up to the low-mid 90s.
Things are still quiet in the Atlantic. There is a weak disturbance coming off of Africa that will have a low chance for formation over the next few days as it moves west. However, hurricane Lane continues to bring heavy rain and flooding to the Hawaiian islands.
The forecast keeps the strongest winds offshore of the island chain, but they will continue to get some occasional strong gusts. They will also have high waves and some beach erosion. Lane was a category 3 hurricane as of this writing, but it is forecast to weaken as it curves more to the northwest today. Flooding has already been a big problem, and that will likely be a worsening problem there today. Stay tuned for updates.
