Extended Pleasantness

How long has it been for a forecast this dry? After contending with cloudiness yesterday and overnight, but no rainfall, sunshine returns today and it will be pleasant. More of the same can be expected on Thursday. Friday through Sunday feature fair, but chillier weather. There will be some more cloudiness Friday night into early Saturday, but present indications suggest rain remains well to our south during this time period.

Forecast Discussion

Low-pressure is politely exiting the South Carolina coastal waters this morning, and will keep rain well away from our area. Sunshine dominates the daytime with pleasant afternoon temperatures. Thursday will be very much like today.

A southern stream disturbance will pass south of our region Friday night and early Saturday. It looks far enough to the south to spare us of precipitation, but there will be a period of more opaque cloud cover Friday night into Saturday morning. Thereafter, we’ve got clear skies for the remainder of the weekend.

A cooler, Canadian air mass will influence us over the weekend, keeping temperatures below-normal. As this sprawling high shifts off the coast early next week, it will then have a nice modifying effect for our temperatures heading into Monday and Tuesday of next week. All the while, skies will remain generally clear from Saturday afternoon through early next week.
