With a high pressure system building nearby, our skies will stay partly to mostly sunny over the next two days. Highs will reach the upper 80s to low 90s with no rain expected until Friday.
Labor Day weekend is looking partly to mostly sunny with a slight risk of a shower or thunderstorm on Friday and Saturday. Temps will be in the middle to upper 80s. Winds will become northeasterly Friday into the weekend.
As of early Wednesday, Tropical Storm remains over the far eastern Atlantic Ocean. Fred had sustained winds of 50 mph. It is moving to the west-northwest at 13 mph and is moving away from the Cape Verde Islands in the far eastern Atlantic Ocean. It will continue this west-northwesterly track through the rest of the week.
Fred is likely to fade away by the weekend as it moves into a less favorable area for maintaining strength.
Fred is currently about 3200 miles from the Carolina coast. There is a very low chance of Fred making it across the Atlantic. Consequently, little or no impact from Fred will be felt along the East Coast.
It does not appear any significant tropical systems would impact our Labor Day Weekend.
