This morning's weather map shows Tropical Storm Maria off the North Carolina coast and a cold front that stretches from Michigan to Texas. Tropical Storm Warnings are in effect along parts of the North Carolina coast, however Maria will begin taking a sharp right-hand turn out to sea, during the next 24 hours. Meanwhile, the cold front to the west will approach and move into our area tonight. Behind the front, temperatures and humidity will drop to levels more typical of this time of year.
