Forecast Discussion: A couple of showers continue to move through Southern ENC Monday night. A few more showers are expected in the southern counties Tuesday but more coverage of storms is anticipated on Wednesday and Thursday. Behind the front that pushes those storms through is more comfortable air so our temperatures will again dip.

Tropical Update: Larry is currently a category 3 hurricane and is forecast to remain a major hurricane over the next few 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.

Monday Night

Partly cloudy and warm with lows down to 72. Wind: W 5-10.

Tuesday

Mostly sunny and hot. High of 87. Wind: NE 5.

Wednesday

Muggy with a few storms. 40% rain chance with a high of 88. Wind: SW 10 G15.

Thursday

Few storms possible. Rain chance of 30% and highs in the mid-80s. Wind: SW 5.
