The fair may be over, but the temperature rollercoaster is still open for business with plenty of ups and downs in this week’s forecast. So, strap in, and get ready for a steep drop!

Warmer for much of the week, but more cool weather to come

/ November 3, 2019 at 10:22 PM

After a very refreshing weekend of below-normal temperatures, we will be headed back into the 70s for a few days starting Monday. (For what it’s worth, highs in the 70s are normal for early November.) However, another round of unseasonably cool weather is on tap for the weekend.

Fall goes on hold for Halloween

/ October 27, 2019 at 5:03 PM

While much of the nation will close October out with fairly cold temperatures, a sliver of warmth will hug the East Coast, keeping temperatures closer to late September/early October normals for the work week. Upper-level disturbances will keep the weather rather unsettled as well, with rain chances Tuesday-Friday before a cold front ushers fall back into the picture for the weekend.

The week ahead: An end in sight to Eternal August

/ September 30, 2019 at 5:00 AM

Our abnormally warm and dry September will roll into the first few days of October as strong high pressure aloft remains anchored over the southeast U.S.

Changes are coming, though, and I suspect many of you will be OK with them.

Fall may be beginning, but summer won’t let go

/ September 22, 2019 at 11:59 PM

By the time some of you read this, the autumnal equinox will likely have passed (3:09 am), ushering in astronomical Fall. (It’s been meteorological fall since September 1.) Don’t tell that to Ma Nature, though. High pressure aloft is re-establishing itself, ushering us back into what is effectively a very summer-like pattern for the upcoming week.

The week ahead: A hint of cooler weather in store

/ September 15, 2019 at 11:45 PM

A warm start to the work week will give way to a taste of fall to close it out. (I mean, my goodness, 82° and fair skies on Thursday? Pinch me!) Plus, no worries about the tropics for the foreseeable future, either. Here’s a look at the week ahead…

The week ahead: Warmth continues, far fewer hurricanes

/ September 9, 2019 at 1:24 PM

The week ahead will continue to feature a late-summer heat wave, especially as we kick off the new work week. Temperatures in the 90s will feel closer to the 100s with humidity with just a slight chance of an afternoon shower or storm to cool things off. Thunderstorm chances kick up as we head into the weekend as a tropical disturbance (more on that in a sec) is set to move through Florida, enhancing moisture in our neck of the woods.

Hot start to the second half of 2019

/ July 1, 2019 at 9:34 AM

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.)

Another warm, dry week ahead

/ May 20, 2019 at 8:05 AM

Summer-like weather will continue this week. The heat will really turn on by the end of the week, as we look to flirt with mid-to-upper 90s temperatures across much of the area. Unfortunately, very little heat relief in the way of thunderstorms appears probable after Tuesday.

Spring’s last gasp?

/ May 13, 2019 at 8:09 AM

Today we find ourselves between two fronts: one that will be pushing off the coast (but perhaps not before kicking off a shower or storm or two) and another that will provide what may very well be Spring’s last gasp.
