CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - A few showers with warm and humid high temperatures will continue for Sunday! There’s a moderate risk for rip currents through the next few days so stay out of the waters if possible. A cold front will move through late Monday and ahead of it some scattered rain is possible, but again we are not expecting a washout. Cooler temperatures will settle in Tuesday. Highs mid week will peak in the low to mid 80s with morning temperatures in the mid/upper 60s!
In the tropics there are no areas of immediate concern for the Lowcountry, however it’s important to stay aware this time of the year. Here’s what we re tracking:
- DISTURBANCE 1: This area is in the central Gulf and will drift southwest closer to Mexico. This is no concern to the U.S.
- TROPICAL STORM SALLY: This area will move over the Gulf of Mexico and will make landfall along the northern Gulf Coast by Tuesday or Wednesday;
- HURRICANE PAULETTE: Paulette will move closer to Bermuda on Sunday and move near or over Bermuda into early next week. A trough will push this storm away from the U.S.
- TROPICAL DEPRESSION RENE: Rene will continue to weaken into a remnant low in the next few days.
- TROPICAL DEPRESSION 20: This area is tracking west through the Atlantic and has a likely chance of becoming a tropical storm in the next few days. This system should move NW in the next few days before moving more north into the Atlantic. No issues for us right now.
- DISTURBANCE 3: Cluster of showers and storms near the Cabo Verde Islands will migrate west/northwest and has a medium chance of development within the next 5 days.
SUNDAY: Warm and humid, isolated shower or storm possible, HIGH: 87.
MONDAY: Still humid, slight chance, HIGH: 88.
TUESDAY: Cooler and less humid, HIGH: 83.
WEDNESDAY: More comfortable, HIGH: 84.
