The week ahead: Mostly quiet, seasonably warm

/ September 26, 2021 at 11:41 PM

We will close out September with a weather winning streak intact. Temperatures will gradually moderate into the mid-to-upper 80s as we get into midweek with mostly sunny skies each day. We could see a front swing through later in the week; while it will be moisture-starved, it might be able to squeeze out a storm or two. Then, back into the low 80s for the weekend, with mostly sunny skies prevailing. Not a bad way to close out the month and head into the fourth quarter of 2021 (already!).

The tropics remain active, but there are no foreseen threats to the Lowcountry. Hurricane Sam, a powerful Category 4 hurricane, will recurve well away from the continental US but may threaten Bermuda by the weekend. The remnants of Peter have a 50/50 shot of redeveloping tropical characteristics as they move well to the east of Bermuda, but there are no concerns here either. Finally, there are two other areas of interest in the eastern Atlantic that are likely to develop by the end of the week, but we will have plenty of time to keep an eye on those. The end of the month is a good time to refresh your hurricane kit if needed and review your safety plan just in case we end up needing it in October.

In the meantime, continue enjoying the great stretch of weather we’re in!
