The remnant wave that used to be Tropical Storm Bonnie continued
to spin along the Carolina coastline during the day Tuesday,
throwing moisture into portions of the mid Atlantic United States.
Early morning fog, especially in the valleys, quickly heeded to
abundant sunshine by mid day, with temperatures approaching and
exceeding 80 degrees for most. Wind remained calm at the surface.
A few downpours and rumbles of thunder began to form across the
eastern slopes of the appalachians in portions of northwest North
Carolina and far southwestern Virginia around noon, and continue
to soak the few areas where development has occurred.
The remnants of Bonnie should slowly move northeastward along the
South Carolina and North Carolina coastlines during the next
several days. A cold front will cross over the region Thursday
night into Friday, removing this tropical moisture...and leaving
us with a bit cooler and drier conditions for the weekend.
