Desert-like air....watching Earl closely

>> Monday, August 30, 2010

The next few days around the Carolinas will feature an airmass you would more typically see in desert regions. Look for a mainly clear sky, pleasant nights, and hot, low humidity afternoons. Highs today will be in the lower 90s...look for mid 90s tomorrow and Wednesday.

I will mention a few clouds Thursday for the Piedmont as Earl makes its closest pass to North Carolina (more on Earl below), then sunshine and low to mid 90s Friday.

Delightful Labor Day weekend...

The first 'real' cold front of the year looks to move through in time for a wonderful Labor Day weekend forecast. Highs will back down into the 80s, humidity will be very low, and lows will be in the lower 60s...maybe even a few Piedmont spots in the upper Sunday and Monday.


Hurricane Earl is strengthening in the northeast Caribbean Islands and will likely become a Category 3 hurricane today. Earl will gradually bend to the northwest over the next couple of days and will wind up passing very close to the Outer Banks later Thursday. The exact track is still in question, but it is close enough that all interests up and down the Carolina coast need to closely monitor Earl's progress. Locations even farther northward toward the New England states need to monitor Earl as well.

Regardless of the specific track, big-time surf and rip current issues will occur all week up and down the east coast.

So it is looking as Earl is going to make a curve more towards northwest then north as it approaches the East Coast? So it won't be a threat to us here in Charlotte?

TY....I don't think Earl brings any problems for Charlotte.
