A low pressure system will stall near our coast through midweek. With it, expect cool, wet and unsettled weather. Said low will likely move just to the northeast of the Carolinas late this week and allow for a period of still cool but slightly less rainy conditions.
MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY FORECAST: Expect clouds and scattered to, at times, numerous soaking rain showers. Total rain amounts of 2 to 3 (locally 4+) inches are possible. Temperatures: mainly 60s. Winds: mainly northeast 10 to 20mph.
LATE WEEK AND WEEKEND: Expect variable clouds and shower chances lower than earlier parts of the week - but still in the 10 to 30% range. Temperatures will generally fall to the upper 50s for nighttime lows and climb to the lower to possibly mid 70s for daytime highs.
TROPICAL OUTLOOK: Tropical depression Karen has dissipated, but some of its moisture will contribute to our local showers. Elsewhere: a tropical wave of low pressure about 500 miles southwest of the Cape Verde Islands has a 30% chance of developing over the next 5 days.
