Turn Clocks Back 1 Hour Saturday Night Before Going to Bed….Fall Back to Standard Time
A strong area of low pressure over the Great Lakes will move southward over the next 24 hours and further intensify off the Carolina Coast late Saturday night. As a result, cloudiness in advance of this system has overspread our area and isolated showers will be possible after midnight.
Right now, we think only isolated showers will possible before sunrise tomorrow. But during the day tomorrow, scattered showers will become more likely and northerly winds will increase in speed. Temperatures will be 10-15 degrees below average. Showery and breezy conditions will continue into Saturday night. As the intensifying coastal system moves northward, on Sunday, and high pressure starts rebuilding over the area, we expect to see a mostly sunny, windy and chilly day across the entire region. A modest warming trend will begin on Monday.
