Better Looking for Memorial Day

Numerous showers that developed Sunday (thanks to tropical moisture from tropical depression Bonnie) taper this evening as drier air wraps around the backside of the storm. For Memorial Day, we have a better story to tell; pleasant, with more sunshine and just a slight risk of a PM shower or t-shower. Temperatures were a good bit cooler today but will be warmer again by tomorrow. Enjoy!

Forecast Discussion

Tropical Storm Bonnie made landfall along the southern South Carolina coastline Sunday and has since been downgraded to a tropical depression. It’s been a rather weak storm, but its position has been close enough to western NC to envelope us within its shield tropical moisture, resulting in numerous showers throughout the day Sunday. Expect showers to taper this evening leaving us with mostly cloudy skies tonight.

The rest of the forecast is comparatively easy-going. Tropical depression Bonnie will take a slow journey up the Carolina Coast over the next several days. High pressure builds on the backside of the storm to give us fantastic weather conditions for Memorial Day. Rain chances are not zero for the mountains and foothills, but coverage will be less than today and limited mostly to the PM hours.

Low level moisture ramps up towards the middle and late part of next week ahead of a cold front slated to arrive Friday. After a relatively quiet Monday and Tuesday, expect increasing chances of PM shower and thundershower activity Wednesday through Friday.
