August Cooldown Set to Spill Across Carolinas

It has been rather hot and humid lately, and fortunately that will come to an end, temporarily. Saturday will be a very nice day, with highs not getting out of the 80s and not as humid for most. Think about that compared to consistent days in the 90s.

Saturday morning lows are shown above as official NWS lows. The air will also be drier, and it will feel better compared to the humid days we’ve had.

This happens every so often in August, normally, since more autumn-like airmasses are just starting to work their way in. It’s not autumn air by no means, but it starts to show the first signs of any temperature changes in September.

Unless, of course, we have a heatwave in September. Early September is not unusual around here. But temps have been near normal, so we’re not expecting any kind of strange heat anomalies this year.

Enjoy and get outside!
