Tropical Storm Ophelia formed over the last few days and made landfall along the coast of NC this morning. It is moving north and bringing windy conditions and heavy rain to a lot of eastern North Carolina and Virginia. It will be moving out to the northeast over the next couple of days before it moves back out to sea and ceases to be an impact on Southeastern weather. After Ophelia exits, rainfall across most of the region should be relatively light, with a weather system bringing some light rain to the region mid-week. Florida is expected to be the rainiest part of the region other than the region impacted by Ophelia. Week 2 is predicted to be warmer and drier than usual, so good harvest weather should continue for most of the Southeast.
