FRIDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy with scattered downpours returning more so towards dawn. Lows: 68 to 72 inland, 70 to 74 beaches. Southeast wind 5 to 10 mph.

SATURDAY:  Mostly cloudy with periods of rain. Tropical downpours likely. Highs: 80 to 84. Southeast wind 5 to 10 mph.

DISCUSSION: We start August off on a wet note. Friday we saw record setting daily rainfall amounts for both New Bern and Beaufort. While New Bern saw close to 2” of rain, the Crystal Coast saw at least 3” or rain. Both these cities also saw waterspouts early Friday morning.

Our weather pattern this weekend and into early next week will be very similar to what we saw on Friday. Thus, the entire area is under a Flood Watch until at least Sunday evening.

We will again see tropical downpours during the late morning and through the mid-afternoon hours on Saturday and Sunday. An additional 2 inches or more of rain could fall both afternoons east of Highway 17 with an additional inch or more possible each day for inland spots.

Waterspouts could also be possible from rain cells developing over the coastal waters and moving towards shore.

Finally by early next week the Bermuda high pressure out in the ocean will push westward and change our weather pattern to more typical summertime afternoon scattered t’storms and return our temperatures to near average (90 degrees).

TROPICS: Tropical Storm Bertha continues to move through the Windward Islands. It has encountered southwesterly wind shear and dry Saharan so the storm has continued to struggle to intensify as it moves to the northwest at near 20 mph. The storm is being guided by the Bermuda high pressure in the central Atlantic Ocean. The storm will continue over Hispanola on Saturday and towards the Bahamas early next week. As of now the storm is expected to recurve and stay east of Eastern Carolina. But it does appear that by Tuesday or Wednesday of next week a tropical system of some moderate strength will be passing between Hatteras and Bermuda with minimal impact to us. Be sure to check back often as we continue to track the progress of this system.
