AM Rain Coastal Areas. PM Sun West. Windy. Matthew Leaves US…

Synopsis:

The combination of Post-Cyclone Matthew moving off the Outer Banks of North Carolina and a cool front along the coast will result in an area of rain that will mainly cover the I-95 corridor Southeast to the coast today.  It’ll rain in these areas through the morning.  North and West it’ll be cloudy but mainly dry.  As the storm and front continue to move East the rain will  taper off from West to East this afternoon (FutureCast Cloud Cover & Radar above).  The skies will brighten and the sun will return inland. It’ll be windy with strong high pressure moving into the Great Lakes and the departing storm.

A dry stretch is in the making for the majority of next week with high pressure reigning supreme.  It’ll be sunny and cooler than average to start the week.

Hurricane Matthew has lost it’s characteristics and is now post-tropical and moving off the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  Record rain fell in North Carolina and winds did gust above hurricane force at the coast.  The storm will continue to weaken and move out to sea.

Today:

Rain along the coast this morning.  Cloudy inland. The rain will taper off from West to East this afternoon at the coast.  Increasing sunshine is expected inland.  Windy.  North wind at 15-30mph with gusts to 40 at the coast.  Highs in the lower 60s.

Tonight:

Becoming mostly clear.  Breezy and much cooler.  Lows in the upper 40s in the City, the lower 40s inland.  North wind at 15-25mh.

Monday:

Mostly sunny, breezy and cool.  Highs in the lower 60s.  The average high is 66º.

Tuesday:

Sunny with readings in the lower to mid 60s.

Clouds For Saturday. Spot PM Shower. Sun Returns Sunday PM…

Synopsis:

The weekend forecast is looking semi-decent.  We are watching two players: a cool front and Hurricane Matthew. The FutureCast radar and cloud cover for this afternoon (map above) depicts mainly cloudy skies. A few spotty showers are possible in the afternoon and at night.  Matthew will stay well to our South and East.  Sunday will start off with clouds and maybe a few hours of coastal rain, but the day will eventually turn mostly sunny.  It’ll be breezy and cooler.

A dry stretch is in the making for the majority of next week with high pressure reigning supreme.

Hurricane Matthew’s winds have decreased to 75mph. The hurricane is hugging the coast of South Carolina and has made landfall just Southeast of McClellanville, SC at 11am.  Hurricane force wind gusts are likely from for Coastal South Carolina today. Hurricane Warnings are up for coastal South Carolina North to Surf City, North Carolina. Matthew will continue to slowly weaken. The storm is now moving Northeast and will be on or just off the coast of North Carolina through Sunday.  A Flooding event in unfolding in Northeastern SC and and Central and Eastern NC.  A possible loop of the Matthew will occur well off the coast into early next week as it weakens as a tropical storm.

Today:

Mainly cloudy.  A spotty afternoon shower is possible.  Highs near 70º.  East wind at 5mph.

Tonight:

Cloudy with spotty showers. A more organized area of light rain may brush coastal areas late.  Lows near in the mid to upper 50s in the City, the lower 50s inland.  Winds becoming North and increasing late at 10-20mph.

Sunday:

Morning clouds.  A bit of light rain may skirt the coast in the morning.  Becoming sunny during the afternoon from West to East. Breezy. Cooler with highs in the mid 60s.

Monday:

Sunny with readings in the lower to mid 60s.

Sunny, Warm Close to Workweek. Matthew Along Florida Coast…

Synopsis:

An area of high pressure will sit over the Northeast today.  Sunny and pleasant conditions are expected. Temperatures will be above normal- in the 70s.

Hurricane Matthew is category 3 storm with winds of 115mph. The hurricane continues to parallel the Northeast coast of Florida, just offshore.  Hurricane force wind gusts are likely from Daytona and to the North as the hurricane makes its closest approach the coast. Hurricane Warnings are up for the East coast of Florida from Cocoa Beach, Fl, North to Surf City, South Carolina. Matthew will continue to slowly weaken. The Western Atlantic high pressure will keep the hurricane from going out to sea for Florida .  But once it’s at the latitude of Georgia it will start it’s curvature to the East.  How sharp of a curvature will determine if the Georgia through North Carolina coast line will see hurricane force winds or tropical storm force winds.   The storm will affect this region over the weekend.  The trough never looked sharp enough to have Matthew ride up the Mid-Atlantic or Northeast coast. A possible loop of the hurricane will occur well off the coast.

Only a few scattered showers are expected around here late Saturday with the trough swinging through with its accompanied cold front.  Fall will be in here in full force Sunday with cooler and breezy conditions.

Sunny Stretch Through Friday. Matthew Heading Toward Florida…

Synopsis:

An area of high pressure will sit over the Northeast for the rest of the week.  Sunny and pleasant conditions are expected through Friday. Temperatures will be above normal- in the 70s.

Hurricane Matthew is a catastrophic category 4 storm with winds of 140mph. The Northwest Bahamas will feel the wrath of Matthew through Friday and very likely a damaging scenario is will occur for the island chain (map below).  The potential track continues to take the storm to the coast of Florida and the Southeastern States North to North Carolina Thursday through Saturday.  A direct hit in any of these states remains to be seen. But nonetheless, Hurricane Warnings are up for the East coast of Florida from Ft. Lauderdale North to Edisto Beach, South Carolina. This area has a high chance of seeing damaging winds.  The Western Atlantic high pressure will keep the hurricane from going out to sea for Florida . The trough never looked sharp enough to have Matthew ride up the Mid-Atlantic or Northeast coast.  Nearly all the computer models have the storm making a sharp right hand turn out to sea or swing it back around doing a loop to the South Sunday into early next week. Only a few scattered showers are expected late Saturday with the trough swinging through with its accompanied cold front.

Today:

Sunny, warm.  Highs in the mid 70s.  Northeast to Southeast wind at 5mph or less.

Tonight:

Clear and Chilly.  Lows around 60º in the City, the lower 40s inland.  East wind at 5mph or less.

Friday:

Sunny.  Highs in the lower 70s.

Saturday:

Partly Sunny.  A spotty late day shower is possible.  Highs in the upper 60s.

Sunday:

Mostly sunny, breezy and cool with highs in the mid 60s.

Monday:

Sunny and cool with readings in the mid 60s.

Sunny Stretch Through Friday. Tracking Matthew…

Synopsis:

An area of high pressure will move in from Eastern Canada for the rest of the week.  Sunny and pleasant conditions are expected through Friday.

Hurricane Matthew is now a category 3 storm with winds of 120mph. The Bahamas will feel the wrath of Matthew into late week-a prolonged and very likely a damaging scenario is setting up for the island chain (map below).  The hurricane could strengthen once again to category 4 status. Will the storm strike the East coast?  The potential has increased that the storm will most likely graze the coast of Florida and the Southeastern States North to North Carolina Thursday through Saturday.  A direct hit in any of these states remains to be seen.  The Western Atlantic high pressure will keep the hurricane from going out to sea. Once it get to the latitude of the Outer Banks will it turn out to see or will in continue up the coast?  As I’ve been stating all along; the trough never looked sharp enough to have Matthew ride up the Mid-Atlantic or Northeast coast.  Nearly all the computer models have the storm making a sharp right hand turn out to sea or swing it back around to the South Sunday into early next week.  The threat of a coastal front setting up is slight at best and the thinking now is only a few scattered showers are expected late Saturday with the trough swinging through with its accompanied cold front.

Today:

Sunny.  Highs in the upper 60s.  Northeast wind at 5-10mph.

Tonight:

Clear and Chilly.  Lows in the mid 50s in the City, the lower 40s inalnd.  Northeast wind at mph.

Thursday:

Sunny, warm.  Highs in the mid 70s.

Friday:

Sunny.  Highs in the lower 70s.

Saturday:

Partly Sunny.  A spotty late day shower is possible.  Highs in the upper 60s.

Sunday:

Mostly sunny, breezy and cool with highs in the mid 60s.

Clouds, Some Sun Tuesday. Spotty Drizzle…

Synopsis:

An area of high pressure will move in from Eastern Canada today.  With the onshore flow there maybe some low level moisture that could lead to areas of drizzle in the morning, but some sunshine is expected.  It looks as though the atmosphere will dry out as the high dominates mid to late week with partly sunny to mostly sunny skies.

Hurricane Matthew is a category 4 storm with winds of 145mph. The storm continues to move just East of North.  It will make landfall this morning in Western Haiti and then continue to the Eastern tip of Cuba later in the day.  Severe flooding and damage with mudslides is expected over Haiti.  The Bahamas will feel the wrath of Matthew mid to late week-a prolonged and very likely a damaging scenario is setting up for the island chain (map below).  Will the storm strike the East coast?  The potential has increased over the Carolina’s. The latest track has the storm closer to the coast due to the fact that high pressure continues to build in the Western Atlantic and will keep the hurricane from going out to sea. Once it get to the latitude of the Outer Banks will it turn out to see or will in continue up the coast?  Thats the million dollar question.  I’m going with a 70/30 chance of the storm coming close enough for us to feel it’s affects.  As we know with all hurricanes; they have a mind of their own.  The hurricane won’t be a anywhere near our latitude until Saturday.  Many days to watch the details unfold.  Stay tuned.

Today:

Mainly cloudy this morning with spotty showers or areas of drizzle.  Afternoon Sun is possible. Seasonal. Highs in the upper 60s. Northeast winds at 10-15mph.

Tonight:

Partly cloudy. Lows in the mid 50s in the City, the mid 40s inalnd.  Northeast wind at 5-10mph.

Wednesday:

Sunny.  Highs in the upper 60s.

Thursday:

Sunny.  Highs around 70º.

Clouds to Some Sun Monday. Spot Shower…

Synopsis:

The pesky system that has been plaguing our area for days with grey, raw and unseasonably cool conditions is finally breaking down. Today will be the transition day with the clouds finally giving way to some sun as the system loses it’s influence on our area.  A stray shower can’t be ruled out but at least it’ll be brighter.

An area of high pressure will move in from Eastern Canada on Tuesday.  With the onshore flow there maybe some low level moisture that could lead to areas of drizzle in the morning, but some sunshine is expected.  It looks as though the atmosphere will dry out as the high dominates mid to late week with partly sunny to mostly sunny skies.

Hurricane Matthew is a category 4 storm with winds of 140mph. The Northward turn has happened and the storm should be just East of Jamaica tonight.  The storm will graze the Western peninsula of Haiti early Tuesday morning and then make landfall over Eastern Cuba Tuesday afternoon. The Bahamas will feel the wrath of Matthew mid to late week-a prolonged and possibly damaging scenario is setting up for the island chain (map below).  Will the storm strike the East coast?  The potential has increased somewhat. The latest track has the storm closer to the coast due to the fact that high pressure is building in the Western Atlantic and keeping the hurricane from going out to sea.  As we know with all hurricanes; they have a mind of their own.  The hurricane won’t be a anywhere near our latitude until late next week or the weekend.  Many days to watch the details unfold.  Stay tuned.

Today:

Mainly cloudy in the morning with some sun returning during the afternoon.  A stray shower is possible, warmer with highs in the lower 70s.  Light and variable winds.

Tonight:

Spotty showers, areas of drizzle and fog. Lows in the 50s to around 60º. Light North wind.

Another Grey Day Sunday. Spotty Drizzle/Showers…

Synopsis:

The upper low over the Mid-Atlantic and high pressure to the North that has been responsible for our grey, damp and unseasonably cool days will slowly weaken today.  Since systems are moving so slow grey skies will be with us through Sunday with areas of showers and drizzle just about anytime this weekend (FutureCast Radar/Cloud Cover above).  It won’t be a washout, but not the best weather for pumpkin’ pickin’.

Monday will be the transition day with the clouds finally giving way to some sun as the system loses it’s influence on our area.

A second area of high pressure will move in from Eastern Canada and finally bring some much needed sunshine next week.

Hurricane Matthew is a powerful category 4 storm with winds of 140mph. The Northward turn has happened and the storm should be just East of Jamaica on Monday.  Landfall is likely in Cuba on Tuesday and then the Bahamas will feel the wrath of Matthew (map below).  Will the storm strike the East coast?  At this time I am leaning against it, but a low probability is there.  As we know with all hurricanes; they have a mind of their own.  The hurricane won’t be a anywhere near our latitude until late next week or the weekend.  Many days to watch the details unfold.  Stay tuned.

Today:

Cloudy with a brightening of the sky at times.  Spotty showers, areas of drizzle.  Highs in the mid to upper 60s.  Northeast wind at 5-10mph.

Tonight:

Spotty showers, areas of drizzle and fog. Lows in the 50s to around 60º. Northeast to North wind at 5mph.

Monday:

Mainly cloudy with some peeks of sun during the afternoon.  A stray shower is possible, warmer with highs in the lower 70s.

Tuesday:

Partly sunny and seasonal.  Highs in the upper 60s.

Wednesday:

Sunny.  Highs in the upper 60s.

Thursday:

Sunny.  Highs around 70º.
