StormTrack 12 Planning Forecast
Fairly quiet weather the next few days. My updated vlog talks about our weekend forecast. http://youtu.be/0Q9CK0Dcuz0
THURSDAY: Mostly sunny and seasonably cool. Highs: 78 to 82. Northeast wind 5 to 10 mph.
THURSDAY NIGHT: Mostly clear and comfortably cool. Lows: 58 to 66 inland, 66 to 70 beaches. Light northeast wind.
FRIDAY: Mostly sunny and continued seasonably cool. Highs: 78 to 82. Northeast wind 5 to 10 mph.
DISCUSSION: Finally a tranquil weather pattern. Lots of sunshine and comfortably cool temperatures will be around the next couple days thanks to a Canadian high pressure. But this high pressure isn’t settling in over us, it’s moving toward New England. This is creating a northeasterly flow over us.
This pleasant weather will last into the weekend. But the weekend forecast gets tricky as I’ll be tracking an area of low pressure developing off the southeastern U.S. coast. This more than likely won’t become a tropical system where we’d need to be worried about wind, but it will be something we need to track as it could mean a cloudier day at the beach. I expect the system to remain offshore, but I also foresee a distinct line in the sky as you go inland as to where it will be cloudy and where it will be sunny. Right now I’m thinking areas east of Highway 17 will have more clouds and maybe a spotty shower due to the coastal system and areas inland will see more sunshine.
TROPICS: Hurricane Edouard is heading towards the Cape Verde Islands, but will gradually dissipate this weekend. There are no other areas in the tropics that I am worried about development within the next week.
MARINE: Northeast wind 10 to 15 knots. Seas 2 to 4 feet near shore. Surf temp: 80 degrees.
