Forecast Last Updated at Saturday, April 30, 2016 at 1:08PM

Thickening Clouds; Showers Coming

Clouds will be thickening today, although we believe most of the shower activity will hold off until late this afternoon or evening. Our best period of rainfall will be tonight into Sunday. Some thunder will be also be possible during this period. Monday looks like a brief break in the action before more rain returns Monday night into Tuesday. Be prepared for a big cool-down and some Blackberry Winter conditions for late next week.

Merlefest continues today with more great music and memories! We expect dry conditions through most of the daytime. By this evening, showers will be moving in with some thunder a possibility. Sunday will be mostly cloudy with more showers and thundershowers around, but not an all-day rain by any means. See our MerleFest Hour-by-Hour Forecast for details.

Forecast Discussion

A semi-stationary front bisects the region today, and will begin to head northward as a warm front tonight. Skies will become cloudy today with showers likely toward evening. Expect showers tonight with thunder possible.

Low-pressure over the nation’s midsection today will move into the Ohio Valley by late Sunday and then off the Northeast coast of the United States on Monday. It will drag a cold front through the mountains by early Monday. Showers and thundershowers will be a good bet on Sunday before we get a Monday respite.

A wave of low-pressure will ride up the Southeast coast Monday night into Tuesday, spreading another round of light rain into the mountains during this time period. Temperatures will be trending cooler as well.

For the second half of the week, a big buckle in the Jet Stream will carve out across the eastern part of the United States. This will keep our weather cool and unsettled Wednesday through Friday with periodic rain showers. By late Thursday night and Friday, it might be cold enough for some snowflakes to mix in across the higher terrain. Blackberry Winter indeed!
