Good Morning Folks! We kick off the holiday weekend in style today with plenty of sunshine across the region and warmer than normal temps as they push into the mid 70’s – upper 80’s depending upon elevation. An isolated shower or thunderstorm is possible today but the majority of the region will remain dry as the bulk of the action develops along the highest ridgetops. It will however be a bit muggy as moisture slowly ramps up across the Southeast, to the point where there will be more clouds than sunshine tomorrow. As we move past sunset and into the overnight hours we will find temps dipping into the upper 50’s – mid 60’s depending upon elevation with minor cloud cover passing overhead; patchy fog around sunrise.
Sunday adds more cloud cover to the mix and this will help temps keep to the low 70’s – mid 80’s which is only slightly above normal for this time of the year. With increasing southerly flow throughout the day we expect scattered light – moderate showers to develop after midday and continue into the early evening hours, eventually scaling back to isolated coverage for the rest of the night. Most locations stand a chance at picking up a tenth – quarter of an inch and the heavy ran threat seems to be fading as the amount of available moisture is not as high as previously forecasted. Temps will dip into the low – mid 60’s overnight into Labor Day and mostly cloudy skies... click here for more
