**Above is today's edition of the Carolina Weather Video. Scroll down in the post for the Tropical Weather Video for today.**

Our area of low pressure came ashore overnight not far from Myrtle Beach, and it continues to move WNW through South Carolina today. We will see occasional showers today and tonight. It is still pretty breezy today, but those winds will greatly subside tonight.

Our weekend will feature the chance of a couple of showers, especially during the afternoon hours, but all in all, not a bad weekend. Highs will be in the low to mid 70s Saturday and upper 70s to lower 80s Sunday.

our next cold front is still pegged to move through here Tuesday or Wednesday next week, and I still anticipate a nice push of chillier air behind it. Some of the modeling is backing off on the amount of colder air for our area, but I am not as of now. We will see.

Kyle will head for a landfall in New England of the Canadian Maritimes late this weekend or early Monday. It could be a hurricane upon landfall.

Here is today's edition of the Tropical Weather Video.

Everyone enjoy the weekend. For fans of SEC football, this weekend is a good one. Match-ups include Georgia-Alabama, Tennessee-Auburn, and my Mississippi State Bulldogs at LSU. Then the Panthers host the Falcons Sunday in a big NFC South divisional match-up....should be fun.


Kyle has formed....but not along the coast.....

Our low pressure along the coast has still yet to me declared an official tropical system by the NHC, in spite of it having an eye-like feature at times and warmer temperatures in the eye than in surrounding sections of the system. The NHC maintains that the system is not really tropical in nature and is still associated with a frontal boundary.

Like I have been mentioning, official declaration or not, this will look and feel like a strong tropical storm along the Carolina coast as it makes landfall.

Our disturbance north of Puerto Rico has been declared Tropical Storm Kyle...the official track takes it into the Canadian maritimes.



**Above is today's edition of the Carolina Weather Tropical Weather Video today....all is discussed in the Carolina video. Give it a watch.**

All eyes remain on the area of low pressure strengthening and approaching the Carolina coast today. The wind field with that low is very impressive, and we will continue to see windy conditions through the day with gusts possible exceeding 40mph at times today and tonight.

Along the coast, this will look and feel like a strong tropical storm with high winds, significantly increased surf, lots of rain, and beach erosion issues.

In terms of rain, we will see areas of rain settle in as today unfolds, and I anticipate periods of rain tonight and tomorrow. Highs today and tomorrow will only be in the low to mid 60s.

The weather improves for the weekend with only some lingering showers Saturday and a dry forecast Sunday.


Quick hit...

Nasty low pressure wrapping up off the coast. The NHC has not classified this as a tropical or subtropical system as I am typing this, but make no mistake, this will be a nasty storm for the coast of North Carolina and the upper coast of South Carolina.

Like I mentioned in the videos this morning, this will look and feel like a significant tropical storm, whether it gets classified or not.


Coastal Low to Bring Rainy, Windy, Cool Weather

**Above is today's edition of the Carolina Weather Video. Lots to discuss this morning, so give it a watch. At the end of this post is the Tropical Weather Video....the big topic is the coastal low pressure.**

Lows this morning were cool and crisp with widespread 50s and even some 40s. Pleasant, but breezy conditions will unfold today around the Piedmont with highs in the 70s. Winds will gust to 25 or 30mph this afternoon.

All eyes are on a developing area of low pressure off the Carolina coast. That low will strengthen over the next 24 hours, and frankly, this will likely look and feel like a strong tropical storm for coastal portions of North Carolina. Seas will be rough, it will be very windy and rainy tonight and tomorrow, and there will be some beach erosion issues. See the Tropical Weather Video below for details.

Around here, we will see rain arrive tomorrow, and it will be a chilly, occasionally rain, windy day. Highs for the Triad will struggle to make the lower 60s with mid 60s at best likely for Charlotte.

And, I still think we could see a nice push of colder air by mid to late next week.


Nice Fall Weather!...Tropical Issues....

>> Tuesday, September 23, 2008

Here if today's edition of the Tropical Weather it I discuss the area of low pressure developing near the Carolina coast as well as our tropical disturbance down in the Caribbean.

Fantastic weather will unfold today and tomorrow with highs in the 70s and lots of sun. It will be breezy both afternoons however, with northeast winds gusting to 20 or 30mph.

As the coastal low moves back westward, we will see rain chances arriving later Thursday and Friday. The clouds and rain will also keep temperatures down even more with highs likely in the 60s everywhere Friday. In fact, the 0z NAM printed out 59 for a high in the Triad Friday!

Still indications of a nice shot of colder air by mid to late week next week.

I discuss all of this in detail in the Carolina weather video below. Give it a look....


Tropics....Interesting weather week in the Carolinas

>> Monday, September 22, 2008

Sure looks like we will see our next tropical system soon in the Atlantic Basin. Here is today's edition of my Tropical Weather Video...see it for lots of details.

We will enjoy excellent weather through Wednesday with highs today close to 80 and highs tomorrow and Wednesday in the mid 70s for most. Lows will be in the 50s. Autumn officially arrives at 11:44am, and it will feel like it over the next few days.

An area of low pressure will develop off of the coast today and tomorrow, and the pressure gradient between it and a high pressure over the New England states will make for breezy conditions Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons.

That coastal low will drift inland later in the week, and we could see some rainy conditions later Thursday through Friday.

I also think we could see a good push of cooler weather later NEXT week, and the overall theme in the weather pattern seems to support additional shots of colder air around the eastern US through the beginning of October.

Below is the Carolina Weather video....See it for more details....
