The work week rolls on with pretty standard July weather as we remain under the influence of Atlantic high pressure. We’ll stay warm and muggy with lows in the low to mid-70s away from the coastal communities (where lows likely won’t dip below 80°). Highs each afternoon will continue to top out around 90-91° — right around where we should be for this time of year. Rain chances come down a touch on Friday, with mostly sunny skies currently expected.
Overall, brief heavy rain will be possible within any thunderstorms, though storms today did show a propensity to train a bit, with 2″ of rain recorded at a gauge in Mt. Pleasant within a persistent round of thunderstorms earlier today. The strongest storms could produce sporadic wind damage, but widespread severe weather is not in the forecast by any stretch.
Rain chances stay around normal for July heading into the weekend before ramping up a bit as we get into next week.
