Rain Coming Tomorrow + A Tropical UpdateAugust 21st, 2014 at 9:08 am by Jeff Edmondson WAVY under Weather
We had one thunderstorm develop this morning near Edenton and Hertford. As we go into the midday hours we will see more sunshine with temperatures climbing to the upper-80s. There is a new storm system in the Midwest right now. That is expected to move closer to our area by tomorrow afternoon. Showers and thunderstorms will continue into Saturday.
The rain should begin after 2-3pm tomorrow. The storm system will move offshore Saturday and Sunday which will push in a strong northeast wind. That breeze will push in a new swell of waves for the VB Oceanfront and the OBX. That is good news for the ECSC where waves have been small all week.
Chest High + Waves may move in on Sunday. That will also mean we will see a high threat for rip currents this weekend.One of the issues will be the wind. That onshore breeze will keep the choppy conditions at the oceanfront.
I am still watching a storm system in the Atlantic, as of now it still is disorganized, but is expected to strengthen over the next 24 hours.
Past this weekend, there is still low confidence in the models. The trend has it moving towards Bermuda and staying out to sea. Remember yesterday the tracks had it near the Gulf of Mexico. I will continue to watch this storm over the next few days.
