Muggier air moving in...

>> Thursday, May 21, 2009

Above is today's edition of the Carolina Weather Video.

Instead of northeast winds, our winds have now shifted out of the east and eventually southeast, ushering in a muggier airmass from the Atlantic Ocean. So we began the day with temps in the 50s and 60s instead of the 30s and 40s.

Highs today will top out in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees with a partly cloudy sky. Lows again tonight will drop in the upper 50s.

We are still watching an area of low pressure spin up down in the Gulf of Mexico, but at least for the next few days, the tropical rains from that low will remain south and west of us. So, we are looking at a primarily dry forecast through the holiday weekend with a partly cloudy sky, highs in the low to mid 80s, lows in the 60s, and fairly muggy conditions. I can't rule out a chance of an isolated PM shower or storm each day, but most spots will likely remain dry through the weekend.

When and/or if we eventually get into the moisture from whatever is left of the Gulf low remains a question mark. Some modeling (Canadian, European) says we will by Monday or Tuesday....others (GFS) say we won't until at least Wednesday or Thursday.
