August Normalcy Returns

With Isaias exiting quickly, our weather pattern reverts back where we started before the storm, that is, ample daily sunshine, warm and humid, with hit-or-miss PM showers and thunderstorms. Today was a relative minima in the wake of the tropical cyclone, but expect decent coverage for the rest of the workweek. The weekend is shaping up nicely with both Saturday and Sunday favoring many more dry hours than wet.

Forecast Discussion

And now, back to our regularly scheduled weather programming...

Hurricane Isaias made a category-one landfall just before midnight around Ocean Isle Beach, NC. With Isaias out of the way, the weather map gets pretty boring around here. Weak high pressure will be in command of our weather pattern going forward. A weak upper level trough of low pressure following in the wake of Isaias will promote decent coverage of afternoon showers and thunderstorms for Wednesday through Friday.

High pressure and broader subsidence, or sinking air, will take over for the weekend. We’re probably looking at no better than a 3 in 10 chance for a PM thundershower both Saturday and Sunday.

This general weather pattern will then persist into early next week, as our temperatures return to perhaps a few degrees warmer than normal. However, there won't be any crazy heat here like we could have this time during the month of August.
