Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast
Showers today, soggy this weekend… We will see a mix of partly to mostly cloudy skies today with an isolated shower possible. Highs will return to the mid and upper 70s, just a couple degrees above normal for this time of year. It will still be breezy today with ENE winds at 5 to 15 mph, 10 to 20 near the coast.

It is looking like a gloomy and soggy weekend. Rain chances will increase through the day Saturday and decrease through the day Sunday. The biggest rain chances will be Saturday night. Highs will linger in the mid 70s with mostly cloudy skies. Persistent east to northeast winds will trigger some minor level tidal flooding.

We will be back to a drier and warmer weather pattern next week. Highs will warm to the upper 70s and low 80s with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies.

Today: Mix of Clouds, Isolated Showers. Highs in the upper 70s. Winds: ENE 5-15

Tonight: Mix of Clouds, Isolated Showers. Lows in the upper 60s. Winds: E 5-15

Tomorrow: Mostly Cloudy, Rain, Windy. Highs in the mid 70s. Winds: ENE 10-20

Tropical Update
An elongated area of low pressure located more than 150 miles off the coast of South Carolina is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms well to the east of the center of circulation. Strong upper-level winds should prevent any significant tropical or subtropical development during the next day or two. By Sunday environmental conditions could briefly become marginally conducive for some subtropical development of the low. By early next week, the low is expected to interact with a frontal boundary, which should end the opportunity for any subtropical or tropical formation. Regardless of development, the low is forecast to meander just offshore the Carolinas for the next few days, occasionally bringing locally heavy rains and gusty winds to eastern portions of the Carolinas through the weekend.
* Formation chance through 48 hours: Low (30%)
* Formation chance through 5 days: Low (30%)
