Expect seasonably warm temperature and humid conditions (heat index approaching 90 oF by noon) on Friday with a chance for pop-up afternoon/evening showers and thunderstorms. Saturday and Sunday will be mostly sunny and seasonably warm. More showers and thunderstorms will be possible Sunday evening. By early Monday, a warm core, tropical low could be making landfall across the Carolinas. Depending on when/where the system makes landfall (National Hurricane Center has indicated an 80% chance of development) and how it interacts with upper air dynamics, rain could work its way into the Mid-Atlantic region on Monday/Tuesday. More details on this system will be posted as they become available.
