Isolated showers today...

>> Thursday, August 29, 2013

A cold front is pressing south through the region, and in the northeast flow behind that front, some isolated showers look possible today with highs in the 80s.

Big college football game this evening down in Columbia. The Tar Heels head south to take on the Gamecocks to kick of the 2013 college football season. It will be a bit steamy at kickoff with temps near 90, and there will be some widely scattered showers or storms down that way.

Our Friday looks dry with highs in the mid 80s. Over the upcoming holiday weekend, shower and storm chances will be on the increase, especially for Sunday and Monday, as a sharp cold front approaches from the northwest. Following that front, a cooler, drier airmass looks likely by Wednesday and Thursday.


Summertime weather...

>> Wednesday, August 28, 2013

The upcoming holiday weekend marks the unofficial ending of summer in the minds of most people, and we have summertime weather highlighting the forecast. No extreme heat in the Carolinas, but highs on many days between today and early next week will hit the upper 80s and lower 90s.

A few storms will be possible today and tomorrow, and then the scattered storm chances look to increase for the holiday weekend.

This weekend also marks the beginning of college football season, something I love. Actually, the season gets underway with several games Thursday night, including one with great local interest as the Gamecocks host the Tar Heels. There will be some scattered storms around tomorrow evening down in South Carolina, but they will be hit and miss. Highs tomorrow in Columbia will be in the mid 90s, and it could still be in the 90s at gametime if a cooling thunderstorm has not rolled through.


Back at it....

After a delightful airmass settled in over the weekend, we will continue to enjoy great weather today with sunshine and low humidity.

Heat and humidity levels will increase starting tomorrow, and we will see the return of some daily shower and storm chances as well, especially Wednesday onward.

Here are a few shots I took last week from the Carolina coast.

Here are some mammatus clouds over some coastal wetlands in South Carolina.

Here is a nice shelf cloud from the Ocracoke-Hatter Island Ferry:

And here is the storm surge display from the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher:
