Forecast Discussion

The last few weeks have been crazy weather-wise. It appears we will settle into a quieter (maybe wetter) pattern with no severe cold outbreaks for a couple weeks.

But it's cold today as Canadian high pressure moves across the Eastern U. S. We'll have clear skies and a cold tonight especially in valleys. Saturday afternoon will be somewhat milder.

We have a weak frontal passage late Saturday with no significant effects other than to keep temperatures in check Sunday. A weak low passes through the Southeast Sunday night increasing clouds late Sunday and sparking a few light rain showers that may linger into early Monday morning. This could mix with snowflakes at highest elevations Sunday night.

The daytime Monday looks mostly cloudy, but mostly dry. Low pressure in the Western Gulf sends moisture our way Monday night and during the daytime Tuesday (especially in the morning Tuesday). We'll catch a break in the rain Tuesday night, Wednesday and into Thursday thanks to high pressure centered in West Virginia and Pennsylvania.

Thursday, that high wedges in as moisture surges north ahead of low pressure getting ready to enter the Southeast. Thursday night and the following weekend look gray and damp.
