Thickening Clouds; Showery Sunday

Saturday kicks off the holiday weekend in fine fashion with continued warm temperatures and a dry daytime expected. But tropical moisture increases from the southeast as Tropical Depression 2 inches towards the South Carolina coast. The result will be increasing clouds today, giving way to maybe a few showers after midnight tonight. Sunday will have more clouds with widely scattered, mostly daytime showers and thundershowers. For Memorial Day, we have drier, sunnier conditions returning along with much warmer temperatures. All in all, we have great holiday weekend weather, despite the slight Sunday hiccup.

Forecast Discussion

The two weather features coming in to play this weekend are the Bermuda High pressure system located in the western Atlantic and the much talked-about Tropical Depression 2 (TD2), which formed near the Bahamas yesterday.

Today, the Bermuda High remains the dominate feature, and in fact will be strengthened by subsidence (sinking air) found around the periphery of TD2’s circulation. So expect no trouble in the weather department today; just some increasing cloudiness and continued warm temperatures. But things change tonight as TD2 shifts NW and approaches the South Carolina coast. We expect its shield of tropical moisture to overspread western North Carolina to give us maybe a few showers, most likely well after midnight.

Tomorrow looks “iffy” with differing model solutions adding to some confusion. Does the tropical depression move inland or hug the South Carolina coast before slowly moving up the North Carolina coast early next week? The difference could have some implications on our weather, primarily for Sunday. But the main point is that the bulk of tropical moisture stays well to our southeast. So we expect isolated to widely scattered showers and thundershowers Sunday before tapering off west to east Sunday evening and night as the depression moves northeast.

Memorial Day returns us to very nice weather with very warm temperatures. The theme next week will be continued warm with increasing humidity. The chance of showers and thundershowers go up late in the week as a cold front approaches from the west Monday.
