Good afternoon! Shower activity remains limited again this afternoon with pop up showers/storms possible. Looking at the current surface map, two features stand out. A low pressure system to the west will settle as a tropical system on the coast of South Carolina moves north. We will see shower activity from both systems tomorrow and Friday before clearing takes place this weekend.
As the official start of hurricane season draws near, we are already seeing a very activity Atlantic. The second tropical storm of the year has been named (Bertha). This tropical system, off the coast of South Carolina, will meander north the next few days. Impacts here at home will be limited to scattered showers Thursday and Friday.
As Bertha moves north, moisture will begin working in for Thursday. These showers will be scattered on and off with increased chances Friday. Jumping into the weekend, a cold front will swing through early Saturday bringing sunshine the second half of the day and into Sunday. Cooler and less humid conditions arrive for Sunday with highs in the mid to upper 70's. Overall, this weekend, especially the second half, should be a beautiful one!
That will conclude today's forecast but if you can make it through the next few days, this weekend looks great!
