Tropical Storm Chris is nearly stationary, nearly 150 miles off the NC coast, and is expected to meander off the coast, over the warm Gulf Stream until drifting northeast Tuesday and Wednesday. Chris will stay over water, but tropical showers and gusty winds will persist back to the Outer Banks and the Coastal areas of the Carolinas through Tuesday.
Otherwise, back west in the WBTV viewing area, we continue to enjoy a nice break from the heat, and the humidity. Our low on Monday morning was 59 degrees and was the coolest morning since Thursday (59 degrees) and not far from the record of 57 degrees set way back in 1891.
Highs will be in the upper 80s this afternoon with the air still pretty dry, before 90s and humidity return for the midweek period. Right now, storms are forecast to return beginning late Wednesday (20 percent chance) and the chance will increase - but to only to about 40 percent - on Thursday as another front moves in.
Hope you have a great week!
