Ghost of Harvey still to cause Severe and Rains! #midatlwx


Rains are ongoing in the Carolinas and the Severe weather threat is actually increasing down there due to the spin in the atmosphere. So as its final number the chance of tornadoes increased and the Severe Storms Prediction Center upped it to an enhanced chance of severe.

Rain totals over the next few days. Note that regions in SE VA and Eastern NC remain saturated so some flooding will be possible but does not look widespread.

 

Temperatures will be quite cool with highs in the 60s in the north and 70s to the south. Very humid with all the tropical moisture around. We should see improving conditions on Sunday with rain and clouds slowly eroding from the west to the east. Temps will rebound where there is sun, into the 70s and 80s. After a few days of drier weather and warmer temps, things will start to become more cloudy Tuesday through Thursday of next week as another frontal system slowly moves through. This could be the edge of much cooler air that I have been mentioning for a while. We will have to keep an eye on Irma in the long range, and, honestly, when you have Hurricanes interact with the weather, I become unsure of the outcome. So a chance of cooler weather and watching Irma is the long range outlook at this time!

 

AND, lest you forget, cooler air is starting to increase and caused Frost Advisories in upstate New York for tonight!
