Holiday travel will become increasingly difficult as a low pressure system develops in the Gulf of Mexico and heads our way Sunday into Monday, bringing heavy rainfall, gusty winds, and the threat for coastal flooding to the area.
8:30 PM:This post has been updated with the latest forecast information.
Sunday will finish with a little more warmth than we’ve had the last couple days as high pressure slips offshore and a front stalls out nearby. Clouds will be on the increase throughout the day, but rainfall is expected to hold off until overnight. Highs will top out in the mid-80s; with dewpoints in the 60s, this will feel a little warmer and more humid than we felt on Saturday.
The second half of 2019 will get off to a fairly hot start, with heat indices running in the low 100s each afternoon. Scattered thunderstorms will provide relief, particularly later in the week. (Must be July in Charleston.)
