Hot Tuesday before more rain and a big cool down
Tue, 13 Aug 2013 12:21:12 GMT —
One last day of hot and humid conditions thanks to high pressure off of the East Coast and a cold front slowly approaching the area. Temperatures will peak in the 90s area wide with heat index values around 100°. The cold front will be slowly moving through late tonight and through the day tomorrow. The chance for a few showers and storms scattered will be around in this afternoon and overnight, but rain chances will be up for the rest of the week. You can always track the storms on First Alert Live Doppler 15000 or if you have an iPhone or Android make sure you download or app!
The front will stall across the Coastal Carolinas through the end of the week and into the weekend. Periods of heavy rain and storms will remain in the forecast through the weekend and temperatures will drop into the low to mid 80s with the increase in rain and cloud cover. Inland areas will see temperatures struggle to even hit 80° on Thursday.
A weak disturbance in the Caribbean is showing a low potential for development over the next 2 days. It is forecast to head into the Gulf of Mexico by the end of the week.. Get the latest tropical updates during hurricane season at our Hurricane Central page.
