Forecast Last Updated at Wednesday, September 17, 2014 at 7:00AM

Cooler and Mostly Cloudy

One of these days we'll see a big shot of chilly crisp air to put us in full "Fall Force", but not this week. The passage of subtle fronts and a steady stream of cool air wedges keep chipping away at temperatures in a step-down fashion. Today is a good example, cooler air behind yesterday's front combined with mostly cloudy skies keep things several degrees cooler than Monday but not dramatically so. Thursday will be a little warmer with more sun before clouds and even cooler air lock down Friday to close out the work week.

The newest version of the app is now available for Android phones. The new iPhone/iPad version was submitted to Apple for approval last week. The update includes all NWS alerts, a refresh button, SplashScreen, and better choices for font sizes. If you are one of the poor weather info deprived folks who don't have the app, here are the links... iTunes Apps for iPhone and iPad and Google Play Store for Android.

Forecast Discussion

Behind yesterday's front clouds and moisture linger thanks to a weak cool air wedge scenario as high pressure to our north briefly nudges down the east side of the Appalachians. While a few sprinkles or an isolated shower cannot be ruled out most of us stay dry, more bark than bite.

A reinforcing area of high pressure builds over New England late Thursday courtesy of Canada. This results in a more classic wedge set-up with a cool easterly flow, lots of clouds, fog, and daytime drizzle when Friday rolls around. As the weather pattern remains progressive the wedge erodes Saturday as the high shifts east. We'll deal with early clouds and fog Saturday giving way to partly sunny skies.

A stronger cold front gains steam moving through the middle of the nation this weekend making a final approach over western NC Monday. A short-lived southwesterly flow returns ahead of the front Sunday with a pleasant afternoon, more sunshine and warmer temperatures. Widely scattered showers break out along the front holding off until Monday. Much cooler air arrives Tuesday, still not overly dramatic, but it will have you thinking about your Fall wardrobe.
