The high temperature has been 78 degrees for the past three days and there is a good chance that Monday will make it four days in a row. High pressure centered well to our north has kept us in generally sunny weather since late last week and today will be no exception. Look for a high in the upper 70s and a few fair weather cumulus clouds.

There seems to be a lack of coordination in Tuesday's forecast. A storm is developing off the coast of Georgia today. The National Hurricane Center believes it has the potential to reach tropical storm strength as it dumps a lot of rain on the Outer Banks of North Carolina before it heads out to sea well southeast of here. However, our local National Weather Service Office forecast discussion calls it a coastal low without any mention of a tropical storm and keeps the storm much closer to the city. Very odd.

No matter what the storm is called we are in for a cool, cloudy Tuesday with a high only around 70. If the local NWS office is right we could be in for a breezy Tuesday afternoon and evening with an increasing chance of showers as the day progresses. The temperature is expected to rebound to the upper 70s on Wednesday and possibly 80 on Thursday before a cold front arrives to end the month with a few showers or thunderstorms.

Clear skies are expected behind the front but it is going to be cool on Friday with a high only in the lower 70s. Labor Day weekend will see some warming with a high in the mid 70s on Saturday and near 80 on Sunday, although Sunday could be spoiled by a bit of rain.
