Isaias is approaching and should make landfall this evening on the upper coast of SC. Possibly as far south as Georgetown or as far north as Cherry Grove. If Georgetown, closer to 7 pm, if Cherry Grove, between 10 and midnight. Max winds on the coast may touch near 70, but most of the time will be between 40 and 50 mph. Rainfall of 3-5 inches. The storm will move more quickly overnight and will already be in SE Virginia by 8 am tomorrow. Max winds at that time down to near 65 mph. After that time, all of our communities in eastern NC will see rapid improvement and a beautiful Tuesday.
Here in the Piedmont, we got rain today from a stationary front, not the tropical system. Later tonight when the tropical system passes through NC, we will actually see our rainfall decrease. Most rain with the tropical system will stay near and east of Raleigh. A stripe of 3-6 inches in eastern NC.
The rest of the week looks pretty typical, but not as hot. Highs in the 80s, lows in the upper 60s. Only a 20% chance for a shower tomorrow, 40% on Wednesday and then back to 60% on Thursday and Friday. High pressure will drop in for the weekend giving us more sunshine and smaller chances for showers and thunderstorms. Coverage will drop to 30% each day. HIghs in the upper 80s.
