COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - Dry weather for the evening and overnight tonight. Also, keeping a close eye on Humberto in the Atlantic!
First Alert Weather Headlines:
· No weather issues tonight with dry skies and temps falling into the 70s
· We’re watching Hurricane Humberto, which is forecast to strengthen over the next 24 hours.
· Humberto is forecast to stay well off land as it passes South Carolina Monday but it is forecast to pass as a CAT 1 Hurricane. Because of this, Monday could be gusty at times with winds 15-20 MPH. This will cause chop on the lakes and of course a rip current along the coast.
· High temps Monday-Tuesday will be in the low 90s but then some cooler weather works into the state. Wed-Sat we’re expecting mid 80s.

Quiet weather as we work our way through the night tonight with just a few passing clouds and lows in the 70s.
We’re also keeping an eye on the tropics. Hurricane Humberto continues to churn in the Atlantic Ocean near the Bahamas. The storm is expected to strengthen through Wednesday. The official forecast track has the storm well off the east coast of the United States.
Based on the current forecast track, the storm will cause no impact to most of the Palmetto State. However, because it’s forecast to become a hurricane when is passes South Carolina, some gusty winds could extend from the storm into parts of our viewing area late Sunday into Monday. Gusts to 20 MPH are possible. We will not see rain from Humberto. There will also be a high risk of rip current and high surf for most beaches in the Palmetto State. We’ll keep you posted to any changes with the forecast.
