We’re tracking an area of low pressure moving out of Florida and up the east coast. It will join forces with another low that will develop along the mountains and intensify off the Carolina coast. Those will bring us wet weather on Thursday and wet, windy and cooler weather on Friday.
Scattered showers are possible throughout Thursday, but especially in the afternoon. And a stray thunderstorm is not out of the question. Expect high temperatures in the upper 60s, on average.
As that low cranks up off the coast, we’ll see our winds increase late Thursday and through at least early Friday. Expect a blustery northeast wind at 15-20 mph, with some higher gusts. That will help keep temperatures down into the upper 50s and lower 60s.
But that storm system will move out just in time for the weekend. We’ll expecting plenty of sunshine both days with highs in the low-to-mid 70s. And it looks like we’ll be warming into the lower 80s early next week.
