Unsettled Weekend Ahead

Clouds begin to move in this evening, and rain is likely by sunrise Saturday. Saturday is rainy and cool (cooler east than west). A warm front moves through Saturday night from the SW ahead of a low that arrives from the NW Sunday. A thunderstorm is possible Saturday night; then scattered showers remain with us Sunday.

MerleFest is off to a grand start. Today all 13 stages will be rockin' with over 100 performances by scores of performers headlined by: Chatham County Line, The Kruger Brothers, Donna the Buffalo, Scythian, The Waybacks, Jim Lauderdale with North Mississippi Allstars, The Del McCoury Band, The Sam Bush Band, and The Marshall Tucker Band. See the Lineup for the whole slate of performances. Today's weather will be terrific! The RWC MerleFest Hour-By-Hour Forecast has weather details for the whole weekend.

Forecast Discussion

We are evolving to the late-April version of a cold wintertime pattern. If this were January, we'd be staring at lots of snow in the next 7 days. But it's April, and the result will be mostly chilly temperatures and two rounds of rain coming.

We hope you enjoyed the pleasant weather today! An unsettled weekend is ahead as increasing clouds this evening give a clue to what's coming.

Wednesday's front reached the Gulf Coast today, then heads back to the north as a warm front tomorrow as low pressure moves across the Mid-Mississippi Valley. Rain develops late tonight or early Saturday. Periods of rain and chilly temperatures will dominate Saturday. Saturday night the warm front moves NE bringing storm potential overnight.

Sunday, the low passes through from the northwest keeping scattered showers in our forecast. Sunday's temperatures will be less chilly than Saturday.

Monday has lots of sun but cooler temperatures as high pressure settles back into the Southeast. Tuesday is the 2nd nicest day of this forecast period--somewhat warmer with increasing clouds late.

Tuesday night through Thursday. Low pressure will take a classic wintertime track along the Gulf Coast (Mobile Tuesday night, North Florida Tuesday, just off the Carolina Coast Wednesday night and Thursday). We'll have clouds and impressively chilly temperatures. Rain may begin Tuesday night. Wednesday will be rainy. Thursday will be showery, especially in the morning.

The good news... that may be it for significant chill. The following weekend, Spring returns in earnest.
