Thursday Afternoon Update 4:01 PM

Our weather continues to look very nice! We will have a mostly clear sky tonight and this will allow us to cool into the lower 50s. After another cool start tomorrow, afternoon temperatures will rebound into the lower to middle 80s. You can expect lots of sunshine for tomorrow, with a partly sunny sky on Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures will remain very pleasant during the day, with cool nights.

A strong area of low pressure continues to pound away at the Carolinas. This system will be tracking inland towards the Appalachians. This may bring us a few more clouds over the weekend, with a north wind. This system has brought 60 mph wind gusts to the east coast. Also, Tropical Storm Kyle just formed north of Puerto Rico. Kyle is expected to track northward and strengthen into a hurricane and the forecast track keeps this system just off shore as it passes New England.

The low pressure area over the Carolinas will help to carve out a trough over the eastern U.S. We will have partly cloudy skies developing by Tuesday, with a few showers possible. A cold front will drop in as the trough opens the gate to colder air. Showers will be possible next Wednesday followed by a cool down into the upper 40s Wednesday night.

I was back on the road today visiting a fun group of kids at Cottondale Elementary School. Today I visited the second grade bulldogs! I will have some video tonight on the news and this will be posted later on our kid’s page.
