Warm weather continues

Changes on the way, though

Wednesday’s forecast. Still looking pretty warm. Tidal flooding remains in the cards for noon travel. Source: National Weather Service

Same old song and dance — weather will remain warm under the influence of high pressure for Wednesday. Highs will challenge the record of 87 at the airport, set in 1980.

No rainfall is expected through Friday.

Tidal flooding through Thursday

We’ll still be contending with some tidal flooding through Thursday, generally for the midday high tides. Be alert for flooded roads and possible closures. Remember, salt water is terrible for your car!

The tropics

Invest 99L may become a tropical system of some sort in the next day or so. While the last system classified 99L eventually became Hermine (and a gigantic pain in #chswx’s butt), this 99L has quite a different fate ahead.

Yep…it looks to be quite a non-factor for #chswx and for the east coast of the United States overall. (And thank goodness for that!)

The next seven days

Fall will be back and it will stop flooding, I swear. Source: National Weather Service

Our next rain chance arrives with a cold front on Friday, after which we will see temperatures get well below normal with highs in the low 70s through Monday as cool high pressure builds into the area. It’s going to feel great and will be great relief from what seems like a summer that just doesn’t want to let go.

The lack of salt water on the roads? A bonus!

Enjoy your Wednesday, everyone.
