COLUMBIA, S.C. — The weekend is ending off on a good note here in the Midlands. We will be seeing a bit more sunshine on Sunday. Winds out of the north will keep our temperatures around ten degrees lower than average. Conditions look to stay dry with no rain in the forecast going forward.
We are expecting a reinforcement of cooler air on Monday here in the Midlands which will lead to our coolest day of the week. Even with partly cloudy conditions, highs should be in the middle and upper 60s.
Things look to remain dry and cooler for most of this upcoming week. High pressure will allow temperatures to climb into the lower 80s Thursday and Friday before a cold front brings us into cooler weather once again this coming weekend.
The National Hurricane Center is tracking a 70% chance of tropical development off the African Coast. Thankfully, this system looks to pose no threat to land as of right now. There is also a 20% of tropical formation with a separate wave heading towards the southern Caribbean. We will need to keep a close eye on this wave but as of right now it poses no threat to the US.
