Daily Weather Briefing for Sunday, September 8, 2019




Outlook

Dry and warm, summerlike conditions are expected through the middle of the week, as upper-level high pressure builds across the region. Increasing humidity is expected to allow afternoon showers and thunderstorms to gradually return through the week.

Local News



In a gathering at the Macon County Republican Party Headquarters in Franklin Saturday afternoon Jim Davis announced is retiring at the end of his present term and Kevin Corbin announced that he will be running for the seat Davis is leaving open in the 2020 election cycle.

Jim Davis was first elected to the 50th District in the North Carolina Senate in 2010 and Kevin Corbin was first elected to the 120th NC House District in 2014. Both served on the Macon County Board of Commissioners prior to their election to state office and Corbin was on the Macon County Board of Education before he was a county commissioner.

Macon Media will attempt to publish a video of the entire event sometime Monday or Tuesday. Due to technical problems, this may not occur until later because the video editing computer is down and an old laptop is processing the video and it takes much longer to process video.

TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK Things are starting to heat up
(video from Levi Cowan of Tropical Tidbits and Mark Sudduth of HurricaneTrack.com have been added to this segment below the tropical outlook and will remain as long as they cover this storm)



Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
200 AM EDT Sun Sep 8 2019

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Post-Tropical Cyclone Dorian, located over Atlantic Canada, and on Tropical Storm Gabrielle, located over the central Atlantic Ocean.

1. A broad area of low pressure associated with a tropical wave continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms several hundred miles west of the Cabo Verde Islands. Some slow development of this system is possible during the next several days while the low moves westward across the central tropical Atlantic Ocean.

* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.

2. Disorganized showers and thunderstorms located a few hundred miles northeast of the northern Leeward Islands are associated with a trough of low pressure. Strong upper-level winds are expected to prevent the development of this system during the next few days while it moves west-northwestward to the north of the Leeward Islands and Puerto Rico. By mid week, environmental conditions could become more conducive for development when the disturbance reaches the southwestern Atlantic Ocean.

* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
