Forecast for Tuesday: Clouds and Storms Across the Carolinas
The daily forecast for Tuesday is packed with clouds and instability. Clouds will build Tuesday morning, starting in the south and building northward throughout the day. These clouds will help to keep temperatures down, and I wouldn’t be surprised if my high temperatures are actually too high (especially if the clouds cover spread faster than anticipated). Besides keeping temps low, these clouds will also be
associated with widespread thunderstorm activity. Areas in South Carolina will have the most widespread storm activity. The mountains, as well as along the NC/VA border, should see the least activity although a storm or two is still possible.
The persistent rain across South Carolina will be an omen of things to come. As a tropical disturbance continues across Florida, it is expected to move over warm coastal waters before impacting the Carolinas. The only thing we can say for sure is that there will be a great deal of rain to come by the end of the work week.
