Fall officially arrives at 8:54 this evening but this weekend will feel more like the middle of Summer!
A ridge of high pressure over the Carolinas will help limit moisture over the region this weekend. Drier air will continue to filter into the region and most locations south and east of the I-59 corridor will remain dry with only isolated rain areas with the exception of a higher moisture content area in the northern and western counties.
The weather pattern should remain the same through tomorrow with only a slight increase in rain chances by the end of the weekend. A shift to a more southerly wind flow in response to a deepening area of low pressure will replace the basically dry air mass over the state by Monday. Scattered or even numerous showers and storms can be expected on Monday and Tuesday. Rain chances continue increasing Wednesday and Thursday as a frontal system approaches from the north and west. However, a ridge of high pressure to the south will prevent any frontal passage and therefore cooler, drier air until at least Thursday. Get set for more steamy conditions for the first days of Autumn.
