Temperatures will stay mild through next week with scattered rain possible on Tuesday and more widespread rain possible Wednesday through the end of the week.

For the Piedmont, morning low temperatures will start off in the 60s with afternoon high temperatures in the mid to upper 70s. The mountains can expect low temperatures in the 50s, with highs in the low to mid-60s.

Tropical Storm Eta will move across Cuba overnight into early Sunday and pass near or over the Florida Keys and South Florida, late Sunday into Monday, moving slowly offshore, and up the Gulf Coast side of Florida.

Meanwhile, high pressure will move offshore of the Mid-Atlantic while a cold front slowly approaches from the west Wednesday into Thursday. All these systems combined will create a river of tropical moisture getting transported into the Southeast United States and Carolinas, leading to prolong rain chances.

At this point, there is still a lot of uncertainty with exactly how much rainfall we will receive and how widespread the rain will be, or even how long rain chances will linger. However, with the potential for widespread, prolonged periods of rain, which may lead to flooding issues, a First Alert has been issued Wednesday through Saturday of next week to bring to everyone’s attention the chance for impactful weather.

Depending on how everything develops, there may be a few strong thunderstorms that develop as well.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and stay weather aware for the week ahead.
