On Saturday morning mostly sunny skies will give way later in the evening to clouds and possible storms ahead of a tropical depression whipping up off the coast of South Carolina.
The depression could strengthen enough in warmer waters to turn into a tropical storm named Bonnie.
WRAL meteorologist Nate Johnson said “That on-shore flow continues overnight tonight, pushes more clouds, showers and thunderstorms inland, and by (Sunday) we’ll have saturated the atmosphere pretty thoroughly.’’
The moist air will mean that slight disturbances will have the potential to squeeze out precipitation. Johnson continued “So, (on Sunday) we’re going to be dodging showers and thunderstorms off and on throughout the day. It doesn’t mean it’s going to rain every minute of the day, but it’s going to be hard to be outside very long without getting a rain shower nearby.”
The rain will continue on Monday for Memorial Day, and the chance of showers continues into Tuesday and Wednesday depending on the path of the storm. According to Johnson “We may have to up those (chances) depending on where the tropical system decides to go. At this point it looks like it’s going to try to hug the coastline, which would keep our rain chances hanging around for a little bit.”
