CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Sunshine will continue with an area of high pressure overhead, keeping us dry and on the warmer side to start the week. Highs will be near 90 degrees on Monday; mid to upper 80s expected for Tuesday. A disturbance will bring better chances of thunderstorms to the area by midweek. Increasing cloud cover will bring our temperatures back near 80 degrees through the end of the week.

TROPICS: Ophelia has dissipated in the Mid-Atlantic as its remnants continue to lift north. Tropical Storm Philippe over the Central Atlantic is expected to undergo slow strengthening early this week as it prepares for a northward turn before reaching the Lesser Antilles. Another wave on the heels of Philippe could also become a tropical depression or storm later in the week. Also, a weak disturbance over the Gulf of Mexico has very low chances of developing as it migrates into the western Gulf later this week. None pose threats to our area at this time.

TONIGHT: Mainly Clear. Low 68.

MONDAY: Mostly Sunny. High 90, Low 69.

TUESDAY: Sun & Clouds. Isolated Showers & Storms. High 88, Low 68.

WEDNESDAY: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Showers & Storms. High 81, Low 66.

THURSDAY: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Showers & Storms. High 81, Low 65.
