Hot & Humid Today, Continuing to Track Isaias

Hot, hazy and humid today with temperatures reaching into the low 90s this afternoon inland, 80s at the beaches. With the high humidity levels we will feel even warmer. If you are heading to the beach today, a moderate rip risk with elevated surf expected. Partly cloudy and humid overnight with lows staying in the 70s. Some patchy fog possible.

Tomorrow we begin to feel impacts from Isaias. Some scattered rain showers expected through the day with heavier bands of rain coming through later in the day, overnight and into Wednesday morning. As of this morning, the heaviest of rain is expected well to our west. Most of our area should pick up .5-1″ of rain in that time frame, lesser amounts farthest east. Winds will peak overnight into Wednesday morning, up to 40-50MPH at times which could lead to power outages. Also concerns for our coastal locations with high surf and dangerous rip currents. Some storm surge and coastal flooding will be possible. A TROPICAL STORM WATCH has been issued for our entire area.

While Wednesday will start with some rain and wind, we should see improving conditions quickly. We will be back into some sunshine later this the day with highs in the mid to upper 80s. A pleasant stretch of weather expected for the remainder of the 7-day forecast. Some spot showers possible Friday in an otherwise dry forecast.
