Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, September 16, 2021 at 6:44AM

More Clouds; Scattered Mostly AM Showers

More clouds are with us today as moisture continues to stream in from the southwest and southeast. Addtionally, expect a few scattered showers, although light, during the morning hours with less coverage by this afternoon. Mostly cloudy skies are expected on Friday with widely-separated showers, maybe a thundershower during the afternoon. The weekend does not look bad at all with partly to mostly sunny skies. It will be warmer with less clouds and a widely-separated PM shower or thundershower is possible on Saturday with more isolated activity for Sunday.

Forecast Discussion

On the weather map, Nicholas continues to die out over the southeastern US today. A ridge of high pressure sits off the East coast. A moist tropical flow continues to feed in from the southwest(some moisture from Nicholas) and from the southeast around the ridge. This keeps a fair amount of clouds around today with scattered showers for the mainly the morning hours. By the afternoon, we expect the coverage of showers to thin out and become more widespread to isolated. Bottom line, the afternoon hours are better than the morning hours. More of the same expected on Friday with a fair amount of clouds and a few scattered showers. A thundershower is also possible in the afternoon. But again, we'll have plenty of dry hours, but outdoor activities will need an eye to the sky,

Over the weekend, high pressure will begin to re-assert itself. That means a drying trend will commence. Widely-separated PM showers & thundershowers on Saturday become more isolated on Sunday. Temperatures will be warmer with less clouds. More of the same is expected as we head into the start of next week. A front approaches and passes on Wednesday bringing our next chance of more widespread showers and thundershowers.

Taking a look at the tropics, none of the active tropical systems directly affect our weather in the next seven days, but here's the current situation. The remnant of Tropical Storm Nicholas is raining itself out in Louisiana. A tropical low is strengthening north of the Bahamas as it moves north. It will stay off the Carolina coast. It will remain offshore as it turns NE and follows a track parallel to the North American Coast. Another strengthening system is about halfway between Africa and the Eastern Caribbean. It continues a westerly course and will be near the northeast Caribbean in 5 days. Both of these strengthening system probably become named tropical storms in the next 48 hours. The next two storm names are Odette and Peter. To completely the story, a new tropical wave has just moved into the Atlantic from the West African Coast.
