Wet Weekend Ahead

There will be increasing clouds tonight and clouds continue to thicken on Friday, with rain beginning early Friday morning and then overspreading the Foothills around midday. Rain, heavy at times, continues Friday night into Saturday before tapering off late. Rainfall amounts of 2-4 inches will be common with Ian, with locally more across the northern Foothills. Improvement can be expected for Sunday as Ian’s remnants lift north and unravel.

Forecast Discussion

Ian has exited the Space Coast of Florida and restrengthened into a Cat. 1 Hurricane sitting about 240 miles due south of Charleston, SC. It will track across the Atlantic coastal waters before making a second landfall in the vicinity of Charleston toward midday Friday as a Cat. 1 Hurricane.

From there, Ian will track inland on a NNW heading, reaching western North Carolina on Saturday before unraveling. Rain will overspread the region from southeast-to-northwest on Friday, with the core Ian rains coming late Friday into Saturday daytime. Even though it has been dry for the past few weeks, some flooding will still be possible. Winds will be gusty out of the north and northeast late Friday and Friday night.

Residual tropical moisture and an upper trough will keep a few showers around Sunday and Monday, but the bulk of the heavy rainfall will be over by then.

We return to a high-pressure dominated weather regime for Tuesday and Wednesday with plenty of sunshine expected.
