Phillip’s First Alert Forecast: Patchy fog early Monday then mostly sunny and warmer
Monday will being cool, but warm nicely for the afternoon
GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - As Tropical Storm Alex moves farther away, the pressure difference between it and high pressure to our northwest will ease, so winds will relax some for Monday. Patchy fog is possible early Monday, especially for northern parts of the area.
Expect mid 80s and sunshine starting out the work week Monday thanks to a high pressure system building in from the north. Seasonal heat and humidity will build back in Tuesday through the rest of the week, but most will not go much above 90. Scattered storms are likely by Wednesday and Thursday with a couple of them popping up as early as Tuesday afternoon.
Rip threats will stay elevated for the first part of the week as Tropical Storm Alex sends waves toward our shores.
Tropical Storm Alex is over the Atlantic Ocean as it gets closer to Bermuda. Alex has max winds of 65 mph and will track just north of Bermuda on Monday. Bermuda has a Tropical Storm Warning.
Direct impacts are not expected here from Alex, however, we may experience rougher surf and an increase in rip current risk Sunday through early week. The closest the storm is expected to get to our area is Sunday when it should pass by about 300 to 400 miles to our southeast.
