CHARLESTON, SC (WCBD) – The tropics continue to be active as we near the end of September.
On Monday, September 24th, Kirk dissipated into a remnant low. The storm had lost it’s organization but low pressure trough continues to produce showers and thunderstorms and gusty winds/ We watch the remnants as they quickly move west toward the Caribbean for potential redevelopment over the next week.
Leslie remains a fish storm. The subtropical system shifted to a easterly track on Monday. It’s expected to be absorbed into an upper level low by mid week.
Of interest to the East Coast of the United States is invest 95-L. As of Monday, it has a 50% chance of development as it drifts west toward the Carolinas. A cold front is expected to swing through late this week which should help stay to the east of South Carolina. However, the potential is there that the low brings rains to parts of North Carolina that are already dealing with on going flooding issues. We continue to monitor the forecast for any changes going forward.
