High pressure off to the north will dominate our weather keeping it warm and dry. Hurricane Maria will pass to the north well off our coast, but will spin some clouds our way. The swell from the storm will result in rough surf and a high risk of rip currents today. As the hurricane moves off to the north, ocean conditions will improve Tuesday into Wednesday. Temperatures will remain warm for the first week of fall with highs climbing into the lower 90s by midweek. There will be less clouds and more sunshine Wednesday into Thursday. A cold front will head our way late week bringing the chance for isolated showers and storms Friday into Saturday. Behind the front, cooler and less humid conditions arrive making it feel more fall-like.
Tropics: Hurricane Maria will continue to slowly weaken as it moves north and then eventually northeast. The storm will remain well offshore of the Lowcountry but may get close to parts of the eastern NC coast midweek, which is where tropical storm watches and warnings are in place. Coastal communities should expect rough waters and rip currents for a few more days. Hurricane Lee is out in the central Atlantic and is no threat to land.
