Forecast Last Updated at Sunday, August 28, 2016 at 6:36PM

Endless Summer

Warm temperatures with abundant humidity and a barely-worth-mentioning threat of afternoon showers and storms--that's the story through Wednesday. Thursday a front moves through increasing coverage of afternoon and evening showers and storms, but even those showers will be just a brief interruption. Looking for relief from the warmth? Think Friday. In a plot similar to a Monty Python "No I'm not!", the low that would be "Hermine" still demands attention--see the Forecast Discussion for details.

Forecast Discussion

With no fronts to speak of in the Eastern U. S., we are in a rather amorphous weather pattern that includes a persistent easterly flow. The result through Wednesday will be warm, humid weather with the a renegade shower or storm possible each afternoon.

Finally a front from the northwest arrives Thursday. With the front, we'll have somewhat increased PM shower/storm coverage, but still plenty of dry hours and warm weather.

A break from the warmth is expected Friday as high pressure wedges down the Appalachians and a tropical low will be somewhere to our southeast. The result will be clouds with spotty light showers and cooler temperatures. Clouds with cooler temperatures linger with a few showers possible Saturday. But don't get used to the cooler temperatures--warm weather overall will last well into Fall.

Tropics... Gaston is a hurricane well out in the Atlantic, not a threat to any land mass. The remnant low of Fiona is still out there just east of Bermuda. The low we have been watching for almost a week is now in the Florida Keys. Finally today, we have a bit more clarity regarding this low. It will continue to drift west into the Gulf through mid-week slowly strengthening. It probably gets a name within the next 48 hours (Hermine). Most model guidance then has Hermine moving northeast into northern Florida by Thursday or Friday. From there, it could make a run up the Southeast Atlantic Coast. We have more clarity, but details by mid-week remain fuzzy. At this time, this system does not appear to affect the Southern Appalachians; however, we always need to be mindful of a tropical system in the Gulf.
