Week Ahead Weather: Cooler, Cloudy In Charlotte

CHARLOTTE, NC — Keep your umbrella close this week because there’s a chance for rain every day in the Queen City region, sadly, all the way through the Labor Day weekend.

The National Weather Service’s prediction comes as eastern North Carolina braces for a tropical storm watch that was issued for the coast of North and South Carolina Sunday evening.

As of Aug. 27 at 5 p.m., the potential cyclone was stationary off the Georgia coast about 110 miles south of Charleston with a wind speed of about 35 miles per hour. NWS meteorologists expect the storm to turn into a tropical depression or storm during the evening of Aug. 27 or Monday, Aug. 28.

The expected trajectory is to move north east up the coast of North Carolina and back out into the Atlantic Ocean, according to NWS predictions. (Get Patch real-time email alerts for the latest news in Charlotte — or other neighborhoods. And iPhone users: Check out Patch’s new app.)
