SUMMARY: A storm system developing across the southern United States will eventually cut up through the southeast US this afternoon bringing with it a good push of moisture and scattered showers. E/NE winds will pick up to around 15-30 mph, as well. In the wake of this storm system you should expect cooler and drier conditions by Wednesday afternoon and evening.
DETAILED FORECAST FOR TODAY: Mostly cloudy skies through the first half of the day will give way to unsettled conditions for the afternoon. Highs will manage the lower to middle 60s. Scattered showers will become likely late in the day along with gusty E/NE winds of 15-30 mph.
FORECAST FOR TONIGHT: Cloudy skies remain in place along with some steadier rainfall and those breezy east winds. Lows will bottom out in the 40s and low 50s overnight.
LOOKING AHEAD: Our latest low pressure system will continue to work out to sea on Wednesday meaning showers will be likely for the first half of the day. However, drier and cooler weather will arrive for the afternoon. Total sunshine will return to the east and coastal plains by Thursday.
