GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - High pressure east of New England is maintaining control of our weather, with little change expected through Labor Day. Our seasonably warm and humid weather will continue. Outside of a few popup isolated storms, the pattern remains generally quiet until a cold front moves into the region from the northwest Tuesday and Wednesday, bringing our highest shower and storm chances in the upcoming week.

A couple of popup showers or storms will be possible Sunday and Labor Day, particularly along the coast. Moderate rip risk continues for all of coastal ENC Sunday, so stay alert and use caution at the beaches.

The Tropical picture includes two named systems, Danielle and Earl. Danielle is far east of Bermuda and tracking to the northeast. Earl is east of the Leeward Islands and slowly tracking to the northwest. Earl in the weaker system, but may become a hurricane over the next 5 days. There are no weather worries for the U.S. though, as the system is expected to eventually recurve and remain well out in the Atlantic.

The forecast from the National Hurricane Center takes the storm west-northwest and just misses the Leeward Islands and Puerto Rico this weekend. The system is then expected to turn northward then northeastward and stay east of the Bahamas and the United States. Interests in Bermuda should monitor the future track of Earl.

At this time, for ENC it appears that at most Earl may produce higher swells and high rip currents later in the week.
