A stalled frontal boundary sits across the Carolinas today with high pressure just to our north. Closer to the front, rain chances will be higher…with lower rain chances today further north closer to the ridge of High Pressure.
Otherwise, plan on cooler weather today courtesy of a persistent NE wind…with highs in the upper 70s. However, the previously mentioned stalled front will lift north late tonight as a warm front. By tomorrow, a southerly wind will dominate…warming temps to near 90° (and it’ll be muggy). There will also be a few showers (but nothing too widespread).
Then, a cold front crosses late Wednesday night into Thursday morning…and winds turn back out of the north. This means cooler weather (but pleasant) for Thursday and Friday.
One thing to note, with the prevailing winds out of the ENE today…NEAR MINOR tidal flooding is expected for this evening’s High Tide. There will also be a HIGH RISK for rip currents today. So, avoid swimming where you see the red flags flying.
