More Rounds of Showers/Storms
Scattered showers and thunderstorms continue to roll through into tonight. We have seen hail and some heavy amounts producing flash flooding (1.43" in Zionville). Action lingers with more waves moving through tonight that could also include strong winds. An approaching front will lead to another day's worth of showers Thursday before drying out to end the work week. Much cooler air will be the theme this weekend with record low temperatures in jeopardy Saturday morning. A valley frost will also be possible in this time frame...ahhh, the joys.

This forecast in the near term, though par for the course this time of year, is already starting to sound like a broken record. Until our cold front sweeps this air mass outta here Thursday evening showers and thundershowers will be around with an emphasis now being tonight and tomorrow.
It is a sight for sore eyes behind the front with at least two, perhaps three, dry and sunny days. We won't call them "warm", but it will be gorgeous. On the flip side of things the air will be chilly enough for a potential valley frost Saturday morning. There is a reason the old timers suggest waiting until Memorial Day to put your plants in the ground.
Beginning Sunday into early next week a warm front straddles the Upper Mississippi and Ohio Valley's coupled with a northwesterly flow aloft. This is the type pattern that can send complexes of showers and thunderstorms on a southeast trajectory into western NC. We will introduce isolated showers to the forecast for Memorial Day with a watchful eye on Monday night and again Tuesday night.
