First Warning Forecast: Warming up, unsettled pattern plus tracking the tropics

Posted at 7:07 AM, May 16, 2020

80s are on the horizon this weekend with a light breeze today. An isolated shower or storm is possible this afternoon.

A mix of sun and clouds this weekend with increasing clouds into Sunday with another chance for an isolated shower. Slightly cooler conditions on Sunday due to a nearby cold front and a northerly wind direction.

A tropical disturbance may become better organized into a named storm this weekend (Arthur). The board area of low pressure continues to form off the southeast coast in the Atlantic, where conditions are favorable for further development. This low could develop into a tropical or sub-tropical storm (Arthur), and it's expected to track to the northeast. Regardless of tropical formation, this low will bring us rough surf, a high rip current risk, and possible ocean overwash.

In addition, expect daily rain chances next week as an approaching cold front arrives and remain stationary through midweek.
