First Warning Forecast: Tracking seasonable temperatures to start the week

Posted at 11:39 PM, Sep 11, 2016

The First Warning Storm Team is tracking seasonable temperatures and less humid conditions.

Showers and storms move out tonight as a cold front stalls over the Carolinas, followed by partial clearing. Lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Heading into the start of the workweek, expect mostly dry conditions under partly cloudy skies. Temperatures will be seasonable with highs in the lower 80s. Dewpoints have dropped behind the cold front, which means less humid conditions.

We’ll even get a bigger break from the heat as a secondary cold front makes its way across the region on Wednesday and Thursday. The cold front will bring a chance for showers and storms, as well as temperatures in the mid to upper 70s.

Overnight: Partly cloudy and less humid. Lows near 70. Winds: NE 5-10 mph.

Monday: Partly cloudy. Highs in the lower 80s. More comfortable. Winds: NE 10-15 mph.

Monday night: A few clouds. Lows in the upper 60s. Winds: E 5-10 mph.

Tropical Update

We are keeping our eye on an area of low pressure located about 1000 miles east-northeast of the Leeward Islands. Shower activity with this system has become a little more organized and a tropical depression is likely to form overnight or on Monday. Upper-level winds will likely become less conducive for development if and after a depression forms. The low is expected to move norwestward at 10 to 15 mph over the central Atlantic Ocean during the next few days.

Formation chance through 48 hours…high…80%

Formation chance through 5 days…high…80%

Cloudiness and showers associated with a disturbance is located near the central and southeastern Bahamas. There are no signs of a closed surface circulation. Conditions do not appear conducive for significant development.

Formation chance through 48 hours…low…10%

Formation chance through 5 days…low…10%
