Thursday: A windy and unsettled day

/ April 10, 2024 at 9:07 PM

Thursday will be a busy weather day as showers and thunderstorms move across the area in association with a cold front. It’ll be a breezy day — expect gusts approaching, if not exceeding, 40 MPH at times especially on bridges and overpasses. We’ll have a Wind Advisory in effect starting at 8am as a result.

Rain will likely greet us in the morning and should be around for much of the day. Embedded thunderstorms will be possible as well, and if enough instability can be realized, a few damaging wind gusts will be possible. The better risk for severe weather will stay to our south, though, where more quality moisture will be available. Still, even without severe storms, wet soils may allow for some tree damage at lower wind speeds. Sporadic power outages could be an issue, so be ready just in case. Before it’s over, we can generally expect an inch to an inch and a half of rain in most spots, with locally heavier amounts possible.

Temperatures will be quite mild and muggy; expect to start the day in the upper 60s with highs peaking in the mid-to-upper 70s, tempered by rainfall.

Showers and thunderstorms should exit by evening, and the weather will continue to improve from there, with a nice stretch of sunny and increasingly warm weather for Friday and the weekend.

Tuesday’s forecast: A few more clouds, a little warmer

/ April 8, 2024 at 11:07 PM

Tuesday will turn a little warmer as winds continue to blow southerly on the backside of high pressure. We start the day in the mid-50s, warming to around 80° in the afternoon as clouds mix in more prominently into the sky character. No rain, though we will likely see some evening coastal flooding once again with high tide around 9:34 PM thanks to the recent new moon and continued onshore flow.

Thursday: Improving weather heading into Easter weekend

/ March 27, 2024 at 9:56 PM

Showers will be coming to an end Thursday morning, yielding a quiet and increasingly warm period for Good Friday and Easter weekend. We should see the rain exit the area by midday, and from there, cloud cover will diminish. It’ll be a cool day in the wake of a cold front; expect highs to only top out in the mid-60s in the afternoon. The breeze will kick up at times as cooler air moves into the area behind the front as well, but it shouldn’t be too terribly gusty, either.

Tuesday’s forecast: Cooler temperatures just in time to start astronomical Spring

/ March 18, 2024 at 9:52 PM

After the past couple weeks of warmth, Tuesday might come as a bit of a shock as lows dip into the upper 30s across a good bit of the metro to start the day as cool high pressure builds in throughout the day. Temperatures will only get into the low 60s, far below normal for mid-March (the normal high for March 19 is 71°). At least the sun will be out, and the March sun angle should make these cooler-than-normal temperatures feel pretty decent.

Sunday: One last day of 80s before rain moves in

/ March 16, 2024 at 9:04 PM

We have one more rather warm day ahead for St. Patrick’s Day, but changes are coming as a front moves into the area late Sunday. Showers will kick up along with this front, and while we’ll get much of Sunday in rain-free, the risk for showers increases later in the afternoon through the evening. Temperatures on Sunday start in the upper 50s, warming to the low 80s despite increasing cloud cover ahead of the unsettled weather.

The front will clear the area early Monday morning, leaving behind much cooler temperatures in its wake. Tuesday may be particularly chilly as highs only get to the low 60s, but we’ll rebound quickly for the second half of next week (though staying well south of the 80s).

Picture-perfect Thursday, but an unsettled weekend at times

/ March 13, 2024 at 9:11 PM

Thursday looks like an excellent weather day across the Lowcountry, something out of the late-April playbook but in mid-March. We’ll start the day around 50° once again, warming to the low 80s in the afternoon with maybe a few clouds amongst otherwise clear skies as ridging aloft strengthens briefly for the day. Expect winds generally in the 5-10 MPH range, picking up a little in the afternoon in the wake of a sea breeze. Enjoy!

Tuesday’s forecast: Getting springier

/ March 11, 2024 at 7:44 PM

After one more somewhat chilly night — expect low 40s across much of the metro, with mid-to-upper 30s possible further inland — we start a warming trend that’ll get us into the 80s by the end of the week. Tuesday looks rather delightful: expect highs to top out in the low 70s away from the locally cooler coastline. Comfortably dry air will be in place with relative humidity bottoming out around 30% in the afternoon, and we’ll keep a solid amount of sunshine throughout the day. Winds will start to swing more southwesterly in the afternoon and kick up to around 5-10 MPH. Not bad!

Sunday: A nice day ahead

/ March 9, 2024 at 8:43 PM

After the cold front that helped instigate quite a busy morning of weather gets offshore, we end up with a rather nice Sunday as cloud cover clears out, leaving mostly sunny skies in its wake. Temperatures will start in the low 50s and warm to the upper 60s to around 70° in the afternoon. The only fly in the ointment will be the breeze: expect gusty conditions throughout the day as high pressure builds in, with winds 10-15 MPH perhaps gusting to 25-30 MPH at times.

Saturday’s forecast: An unsettled day with the potential for strong thunderstorms and flooding

/ March 8, 2024 at 7:34 PM

After one round of thunderstorms moved through Wednesday, a second round of unsettled weather, featuring potentially flooding rains in the morning and severe thunderstorms in the afternoon, lies ahead on Saturday.

Sunday’s forecast: More warmth, some fog, and maybe some showers

/ March 2, 2024 at 10:04 PM

Clouds will continue to hang around on Sunday with the specter of a shower or two remaining in the forecast. We’ll likely start the day with patches of potentially dense fog at times, so be ready for low visibility in the morning. The fog’s expected to mix out shortly after daybreak, leaving behind generally overcast to mostly cloudy skies for the remainder of the day. It’ll be a warm start, with temperatures in the upper 50s yielding to highs in the low 70s in the afternoon. As mentioned, a few showers are possible, but it’s quite possible that much of us get the day in rain-free. Still not a terrible idea to keep rain gear handy, though, just in case.
