Keep an umbrella nearby today! As a the remnants of Nicholas circulated to the SW, some scattered showers will be possible through your Thursday. It definitely won’t rain all day long, but just prepare for a shower at any time. Besides the rain chances, temperatures will be at bay this afternoon in the 80′s with overcast and cloudy skies.

Similar conditions are expected to carry into Friday where rainy periods will be possible with it feeling muggy out in the 80s. This unsettled weather pattern isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. It will be humid through the weekend and into next week with chances for rain possible on a daily basis. There has been some model guidance suggesting that a cold front could push in by the middle of next week which could allow for drier are to move in. This scenario isn’t set in stone at this time, but it’s something we will keep a close eye on.

Out in the tropics, there is a high chance for development for a disturbance located a couple hundred miles off the Carolina Coast. This doesn’t look to pose much of a threat to the East Coast other than rough surf since it will likely curve off to sea over the coming days. The NHC is also monitoring 2 other disturbances out in the Atlantic. One has a high chance for tropical formation over the next 5 days while another has a low chance.
