Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

Average daily high temperatures slip from the 80s in early fall to the 70s mid-fall and on to the 60s by late fall, and the forecast keeps in line with that. Ultimately it should be a beautiful weekend to be outside. Tropical storm and hurricane activity will be a factor along the beaches for the next several days.

*The National Weather Service has noted a high risk for rip currents for Saturday. Heed warnings from area beaches, if your plans take you to the coast.*

WEEKEND FORECAST DETAILS: The forecast for this weekend through early next week is predicated on Hurricane Maria tracking between the Carolinas and Bermuda. Expect heavy surf and rip currents amid otherwise nice conditions: sunny to partly sunny skies. Rain chances near zero and highs in the mid 80s and lows in the upper to mid 60s.

EXTENDED FORECAST HIGHLIGHTS: We’ll keep an eye on Maria and its track and impacts as it works its way to the north. Expect heavy surf and rip currents to continue. Mostly to partly sunny skies continue to sustain the daily picture. 10-20% shower chances during the week, light to moderate northeast breezes, daily highs mainly in the 80s, and nightly lows mainly in the 60s.
