Nestor Rains

Tropical Storm Nestor was coming ashore in the Florida Panhandle this morning and will spread a large shield of rain northward across the western Carolinas this afternoon and tonight. For those wanting to get outside and do stuff, do so this morning before steady rainfall arrives this afternoon and continues tonight. Sunday will become partly sunny and it will be noticeably milder for the afternoon.

Forecast Discussion

Nestor was making landfall near Apalachicola, FL and will be tracking quickly to the northeast across south Georgia, the SC Low Country, and then to a position near the Outer Banks by midday Sunday. Steady rain will arrive this afternoon and continue tonight before ending before sunrise. Rainfall amounts of around an inch will be possible.

Sunday will become partly sunny, which will allow temperatures to climb noticeably for the afternoon.

Monday looks mild and partly sunny preceding a strong cold front that will move through early Tuesday. Showers will arrive Monday night and continue into Tuesday morning, followed by clearing skies.

Temperatures will be seasonably cooler behind the front, and skies will be generally clear for Tuesday night through Thursday. Another front will provide our next opportunity for rainfall at the end of next week.
