Above Average Heat
Another beautiful morning to start the day with current temperatures (as of 7:30 am) in the mid 60's. We are seeing some patchy fog that has developed this morning, so be careful and give yourself a little extra time in some spots.
If we flip our attention back to the Tropics, an additional wave on the coast of Africa has a chance to develop. Latest guidance suggests this could work west through this week bringing trouble down the road. Of course, things are still very early and many changes are likely. As for the two named systems, they will head in a northward trajectory and weaken over the next few days. Lastly, an area of potential lies near Bermuda. As we mentioned yesterday, this cluster has an opportunity (30%) to organize in the next 48 hours before pushing westward. This one specifically could bring impacts to the Carolina's in the days ahead.
As humidity values climb back up through the day, shower activity will begin to spark back up as well. Things should stay mostly dry today around the area but a stray shower is possible on the eastern side of the Smokies. For the remainder of us, sunny skies with high's around 90. We'll see the chance for afternoon showers Thursday and Friday before better chances arrive through the weekend. A slow moving front will stall out across the region bringing cooler air and the likelihood for scattered showers each day next week.
With high's the next couple of days expected to be 6+ degrees warmer than average, make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day. Heat indices are expected to be in the low to mid 90's for some so account for this if you are frequently outdoors.
The weather is constantly changing. People should be prepared in any season. I don't mind having a rainy season, but I hate cold weather. I love how summer feels on my skin. I like the tan color on my skin. Summer lets me wear light and comfortable clothes. While winter makes me chill and makes me remember old and sad memories of my past. But with what's happening all around me, I can't complain anymore about the weather.
