With a tropical depression off the North Carolina coast, we will continue with a cool northeasterly flow of winds and this will keep us cooler than average for this time of the year. After starting off with clouds on Sunday morning, we will have decreasing clouds and increasing sunshine on Sunday afternoon. Afternoon highs will once again be below average. but with more sunshine, we will have warmer temperatures. The Upstate will climb in into the middle 80s while the mountains will climb to around 80 degrees. This tropical depression likely will become Tropical Storm Chris by Sunday and will eventually move away from the North Carolina coast and out further into the Atlantic Ocean. Thus, few impacts other than rip currents and rough seas will be felt along the United States coast. .
Early next week, the dry weather sticks around for the most part as afternoon highs return to summertime normal values – upper 80s to low 90s. With a more typical summertime pattern developing by Wednesday, we will develop more humid conditions and chances for afternoon showers and thunderstorms each day from mid-week into the weekend.
Separately in the tropics, Beryl continues in the Atlantic, posing no threat to the United States. You can get the latest tropical information here.
