Tuesday Forecast

Good Tuesday morning everyone!

Meteorologist Ryan Michaels showing the Satellite and Radar picture this morning.

It's a much quieter start on radar this morning, but not completely rain free. We'll have these smaller tropical downpours dotting the landscape along the coastline this morning, to light showers possible up to Hwy20. Most will not make it north of Hwy20 through the morning hours. However, across Hwy20 and north is where we'll expect to see afternoon scattered storms develop. While rain chances will be very hit or miss today, just go ahead and keep the umbrella near by because if you do encounter a shower it could briefly come down pretty heavy, especially for the inland afternoon storms.

Otherwise, temperatures are warm and humid in the mid to upper 70s out the door so dress comfortably. Highs today return to the upper 80s near 90 degrees.

Our area of low pressure and trough still sits in place around the Southeast this morning creating the lift needed to get these showers and storms going. However, it's weakening and heading out to the Mid-Atlantic states, the reason why we only have several smaller scattered showers this morning and not the big banding deluge type storms from yesterday.

As this low continues to weaken and move away over the coming days, we'll go back to a more typical summery pattern of relying on the sea breeze and daytime heating to create those scattered hit or miss afternoon storms. So rain chances won't completely go away, but you'll definitely find more dry time during the days ahead in the forecast.

Bottom Line...
For today, mostly cloudy skies with a few spotty downpours possible south of the Hwy20 corridor in the morning, afternoon scattered storms north of Hwy20 in the afternoon. Highs today reach the upper 80s to near 90 degrees. Your 7 Day Forecast has rain chances back down to our typical summery trend of hit or miss afternoon storms for the rest of the week.
