While a few storms may fire up later today into this evening, most areas can expect to stay dry through the rest of this Saturday. Areas most favored to see any wet weather will be north of I-64.
Claudette made landfall along the Gulf Coast and continues inland northeastward. It is expected to weaken to a tropical depression within next 24 hours. However, it is forecast to strengthen over the Carolinas tomorrow night and possibly regain tropical storm strength. As of now, it is expected to pass to our south Sunday night through Monday morning and move off the coast of North Carolina.
Some of the tropical moisture from what’s left of Claudette may push into some of our southernmost counties. This, along with a weak boundary to our northwest, will likely set us up for isolated to scattered showers and storms south of U.S. 460 Sunday and into Monday.
A cold front moves in across the region Tuesday. As it moves into the humid air mass, scattered to numerous storms can be expected.
Drier weather is in store Wednesday with lower humidity.
