WEATHER

Little Change This Week...

An upper level ridge of high pressure should build slowly over our area
during the next few days. This high will tend to suppress the

restricted to the afternoon hours.

Bertha is now a category three hurricane but should stay well east of the
U.S. mainland as it remains over the open Atlantic.

Triangle Forecast...

Today....Partly cloudy and hot with a 20 percent coverage of
thunderstorms. Highs in the lower 90's. Winds south to southeast at 3-
14 mph.

Tonight.....Mostly fair. Lows in the middle 70's. Winds south to
southeast at less than 5 mph. No rain expected.

Marine Forecast For Tuesday.....

Winds.....S/SE 5-16 knots.
Seas.......2-3 feet.
Bays.......slightly choppy.
Water temp.....87.
Weather....Partly cloudy with isolated thunderstorms possible.
