FORECAST DISCUSSION

An incoming cold front will eventually lead to storms and downpours, but most of the day will feature mostly sunny skies and warm temperatures. Highs will reach back into the low 90s before the storms show up. The threat of severe weather is low, however it is not at zero as strong to severe thunderstorms will be present. We could see storm activity as early as 3pm, however the heaviest rain will hold off until after sunset.

Tropics
Harvey, a remnant low, continues to move northwestward off the Yucatan Peninsula. The low has a high chance of regaining tropical storm strength. We will continue to monitor the system as it is now forecasted to impact southern Texas late in the week.

A tropical wave located over the Bahamas has a low chance of becoming the next named storm. While the system could track up the east coast of the U.S., the strength of the system should be minimal. If we do see any impacts here in eastern Carolina, we won't feel them until next week.

The next 2 names after Harvey are Irma and Jose.

Tuesday Night: Mostly clear with patchy fog. Lows in the mid 70s with winds out of the southwest at 3 to 6 mph.
