High pressure takes the wheel and turns up the heat

/ April 22, 2019 at 8:01 AM

High pressure remains in control of the forecast through Thursday, yielding several quiet weather days. (That sound you hear is the collective sigh of lots of Charleston-area meteorologists who spent much of Friday doing battle with spin-up tornadoes.)

We’ll maintain seasonable conditions through Tuesday as high pressure gradually slips offshore. Southerly flow around the back side of the high turns on the heat pump for Wednesday and Thursday, with highs expected to top out in the upper 80s for the first time this year. A cold front will then approach on Friday, bringing a chance for showers and thunderstorms to the area. Some chance of rain lingers through the weekend, but it’s nothing to toss your plans over.

Unseasonable chill and much-needed rain in store

/ at 12:43 AM

No fooling: It’s not going to get out of the 50s on Monday. (Nor will it on Tuesday.) The good news is that we may actually see something resembling substantial rainfall across much of the area for the first time all year. Will it be enough to bust the drought?

A (mostly) good-looking weekend lies ahead, but changes are coming

/ March 28, 2019 at 11:06 PM

A nearly flawless Spring Break week (weather-wise, anyway…) will close with a nice warmup as temperatures surge into the upper 70s and perhaps the 80s to end March. Changes are coming, though — the transitional season of Spring is not through with us yet.

Mostly quiet week ahead, but watch the tides

/ March 17, 2019 at 11:34 PM

Weather-wise, we have a pretty tranquil week ahead (save for maybe a shower or two overnight Wednesday into Thursday morning). We’ll just need to keep an eye on tides with a full moon in perigee (“Supermoon!”) this week.

Chilly interlude — but spring returns this weekend

/ March 6, 2019 at 8:33 AM

We’re off to a very chilly start this morning in the Lowcountry as Arctic air has once again taken residence in the eastern half of the country. But as it goes in March, just wait five minutes and it’ll change.

A stormy Sunday night approaches

/ March 2, 2019 at 6:13 PM

Sunday may represent our first good shot at thunderstorms so far in 2019. However, a few of those could be on the strong side with gusty winds, especially for those of you who are a little further inland (think Berkeley and Dorchester counties). Let’s dig in…

Forecast for February 27, 2019 from the National Weather Service.

Today marks the beginning of an unsettled period for the Lowcountry, as rain chances will remain with us for much of the next seven days. This will be some much needed rain, though, as we are running a little behind for the year thus far.
