In today's video, I take a detailed look at the tropics....both Danny and our next potential system out in the Atlantic. Also, much cooler weather is on the way for the Carolinas....see the video.
Today's weather is much different than what we have been seeing lately. We will continue to see lots of clouds with the continued chance of showers and embedded storms today and tonight. Highs will be in the low to mid 80s today with upper 60s tonight.
For the weekend, we will continue to mention the chance of a few pop-up showers or storms, especially during the afternoon hours. Highs tomorrow look to be in the upper 80s with mid 80s Sunday.
Significantly cooler air will settle in here by Monday. This is Canadian-origin air, and it looks like we will have a cold air damming scenario play out Monday and Tuesday. That will likely mean much cooler conditions with some rain at times. On one or both days, highs might not make it to 70 degrees in spots!
Danny: Danny is really struggling this morning and is a weak tropical storm. It still looks like the center will pass just east of the Outer Banks late tonight. Some rainy, squally weather is certainly possible for the Outer Banks, but at this point, it looks like this will rank pretty low in significance on the list of tropical systems we have encountered.
We are watching another tropical wave way out in the Atlantic...that stands a good chance of becoming our next tropical system over the next couple of days.
