Very warm for our first weekend of fall! All the while, we’ll be tracking Maria as it heads north between the U.S. and Bermuda.
Saturday will be mostly sunny and warm with highs ranging from 86 in the Upstate to 82 in the mountains. Normally highs range from the upper 70s to low 80s, so it will be a bit warmer than average.
A few pop-up storms have been able to form from daytime heating in the mountains, which will also be possible Sunday afternoon.
Otherwise, Sunday is looking sunny and warm with highs staying in the low to upper 80s.
We’ll be closely watching Maria, but right now it doesn’t appear to be a big player in weather on the coast of SC and NC. It should move between the U.S. and Bermuda through next week, posing only small threats to the coastline like erosion, high surf and rip currents.
Lee re-strengthened into a tropical storm Saturday morning, but does not and will not pose a threat to any landmasses as it continues to spin over the central Atlantic.
Next week locally will be QUIET weather-wise. Sunny skies and highs in the 80s will be the rule, then we may see a pretty significant cooldown into next weekend. Stay tuned for that!
