Forecast Discussion: The comfortable temperatures and low humidity will become more of a memory since the wind has switched back to the south. A weak front approaches on Labor Day. We will likely dodge most of the rain showers associated with this incoming system, however the instability may result in a few stray showers Monday afternoon and evening. We’ll be back to normal summer time humidity by Monday and Tuesday ahead of showers and storms that are set to arrive Wednesday. Heat indices will return to the 90s but unlikely we get back to those triple-digit readings in this forecast.

Tropical Update: Larry is currently a category 3 hurricane and is forecast to remain a major hurricane over the next several days. Larry will stay north of the Leeward Islands, curving northwestward toward Bermuda this weekend. The Carolina Coast won’t receive major impacts but Rip Risk will be high Wednesday, Thursday, and likely Friday. We are also monitoring a disturbance in the Gulf which has a 30% chance of development this week.
