A cold front moved through early this morning, and an area of low pressure today moves from North Georgia to Eastern Virginia. We will have occasional rain today, tapering to stray light showers this evening. As the colder air invades temperatures do not recover from this morning. Wednesday has more sun, but temperatures will be 6-8 degrees cooler than average. A second front arrives Thursday with a stray light shower possible late-day followed by even cooler temperatures.

Forecast Discussion

Your efforts to dig out sweaters and jackets a week ago will save some work this week. Sweaters and jackets become the norm this week.

Two fronts (one passed through early this morning, another will move through Thursday) usher in cooler than average weather for the rest of this week and into early next week.

Today's front moves slowly eastward, with low pressure moving along the front from North Georgia to Eastern Virginia. We have clouds with occasional rain (maybe thunder) tapering to stray light showers this evening.

Wednesday has scattered clouds and temperatures 6-8 degrees below seasonal averages. The second front passing through brings the slight chance of a passing shower Thursday afternoon and evening.

Friday and Saturday, cool high pressure dominates the Eastern U. S. We'll have lots of sun, much cooler than average temperatures, and the potential for valley frost Friday night.

This weekend, low pressure will be in the Eastern Gulf and a second low develops off the Carolina Coast. Additionally, the next front from the northwest moves through early Monday. It appears we'll escape the rain except for a stray shower possible Monday. Temperatures will return to seasonal averages next week.
