Forecast Last Updated at Sunday, May 29, 2016 at 7:03AM

Showery Sunday; Pleasant Memorial Day

Expect more clouds today with periods of showers/tropical downpours at times, especially this morning through the early afternoon hours. This is all thanks to moisture associated with Tropical Storm Bonnie, on schedule to reach the South Coast this afternoon. The activity dwindles late in the day and 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 will be a good bit cooler today but warmer again by tomorrow. Enjoy!

Forecast Discussion

Tropical Storm Bonnie is located off the SE coastline and will make landfall along the South Carolina coast near Charleston this afternoon. It’s a rather weak storm, but its position is close enough to western NC today to envelope us within its shield tropical moisture. As result, we are seeing showers with pockets of embedded heavier downpours this morning streaming in from the southeast. Expect showers and an occasional thundershower to continue today before becoming more widely separated later this afternoon and tapering this evening.

The rest of the forecast is comparatively easy-going. Tropical Storm Bonnie will likely be downgraded to a depression soon after landfall and 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 much less than today and limited 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.
