Forecast Discussion

High pressure centers are located in the Gulf and Great Lakes with a stationary front between, stretching from New Jersey, across NC, and to Louisiana. A disturbance is moving east along that frontal boundary in the Southeast U. S. As a result, we have a quick start on showers and storms this afternoon. They will continue into the evening. Friday looks much like today weatherwise.

The Great Lake high gets a temporary "win" muscling drier air into the region this weekend. Saturday will be dry and beautiful. Sunday is similarly nice--I nervously called it "dry" for now.

Beginning Monday, the stationary front fades off the map and the muggy Gulf high resumes control of our weather. The next front will reach the Ohio Valley by Wednesday. Expect more clouds by Monday and a resumption of scattered afternoon/evening showers and storms with no end to that pattern in sight.
