Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, April 17, 2014 at 6:39AM

Slow Climb

The cold Canadian air arriving Tuesday afternoon put us in a deep hole. It will be a slow climb out. We add 5 degrees or so today, but expect another frosty morning Friday morning. We'll make no progress warming Friday as clouds increase. Skies become cloudy with the slight chance of spotty light rain Friday night into Saturday morning. We'll be on the northwest fringe of rain associated with a low along the Gulf Coast. Clouds decrease Saturday afternoon/night leading to a pleasant Easter Sunday--finally back to seasonal temperatures.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure in centered in Maine/Nova Scotia and wedging into the Southeast U. S. It will keep temperatures on the chilly side of normal today and Friday. Valleys will be frosty again at sunrise Friday.

A low will move across the Gulf Coast Friday. We'll be on the northwest fringe of rain associated with that low. Skies become cloudy Friday, and a few spotty light showers will be possible Friday night into Saturday morning (better chance south, less or none near the VA/NC state line). Clouds decrease Saturday afternoon and night.

The next high slides across the Great Lakes and into the Northeast U. S. Saturday through Monday. It will give us a mostly clear and pleasant Easter Day with temperatures finally getting back to near normal. Monday also has pleasant temperatures but increasing PM clouds.

The next front from the west moves through Tuesday. Expect a shower or two, and thunder is not impossible. Rain totals do NOT look impressive. Clouds decrease later Tuesday night leading to a mostly clear Wednesday. Temperatures remain near seasonal norms.
