Winds will remain on the breezy side today as we head throughout the day. Cooler & drier air will continue to work into the area, providing for a lovely afternoon as we finally get some sunshine back in here.
Highs this afternoon will be held in check into the upper 70s to lower 80s. The worst of the weather will get out of here by 8-9 AM today and conditions should improve for any Thursday afternoon plans.
With all of the rain we picked up last night, we do have rivers that will climb into flood stage. Both the Pee Dee rivers are forecast to crest Sunday & Monday in moderate flood stage. The Waccamaw River at Conway is currently forecast to stay below minor flood stage through the rest of the day today.
While flooding and rivers will be a talking point for today & the morning commute, our forecast turns quiet and comfortable for the end of the week and into the weekend.
Highs will remain in the lower 80s for the weekend with morning temperatures in the 50s and 60s! Low humidity to kick off September is exactly what we deserve after Idalia.
