WEATHER SUMMARY: A powerful low pressure system is pushing into the Carolinas on your Sunday. The system will bring about a wintry mix for the early to mid morning hours followed by a transition to heavy rain, strong winds, and the possibility of a few stronger storms along the coast. Also along the coast, minor to moderate flooding is expected due to high winds coinciding with high tide Sunday AM. Sunday will be a very dangerous day all around, but as we move into next week the forecast looks a bit brighter, drier, and more “normal” for this time of year. It is extremely important to remain weather aware and up to date on the latest forecast. Watch the video below for more details.
FORECAST FOR TODAY: A gloomy and unsettled Sunday ahead. Temperatures will get to the 50s, slightly warmer along the coast. A “Weather Alert Day” remains in effect as we continue to track a multitude of hazards and impacts. The biggest overall hazards to consider with this event will be freezing rain, sleet, and light snow early Sunday morning changing to showers along with strong, gusty winds and maybe even an isolated tornado into the afternoon and evening mainly along the coast. Minor to moderate coastal flooding is likely along with over-wash and beach erosion. Heavy rainfall is expected across the region with 1″-3″ likely. Lastly, we cannot rule out isolated to scattered power outages especially closer to the coast. Remain weather aware and keep your alerts on loud throughout your Sunday.
FORECAST FOR TONIGHT: Showers and thunderstorms will continue throughout the evening hours, beginning to calm into the overnight hours. Temperatures will dip down to the 30s/40s with breezy conditions gusting anywhere from 20-40 mph. By daybreak Monday, clear skies and dry air will be upon us.
