Pleasant Weather Ahead

After a chilly couple of days, today is warmer. Add 3-4 degrees Saturday and another 3-4 Monday. The next seven days are the driest we have seen in a long time; however, beginning Sunday afternoon I cannot completely rule out a stray light shower. The best chance for a shower is Tuesday; however, generally dry/pleasant weather is the primary take-away for next week.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure is moving slowly from the Ohio Valley toward the Mid-Atlantic this weekend. A cold front is in the center of the country moving slowly east. The front will stretch from Virginia to Mississippi by early Monday then move north as a warm front. The next front from the west reaches the Southern Appalachians early Thursday.

Today and Saturday have lots of sun, dry weather, and gradually warmer temperatures.

With the approaching front and an increasing southerly flow, I cannot rule out a shower Sunday afternoon, but pleasant weather remains the primary thought. We keep a barely worth mentioning chance of a stray shower Monday with warmer temperatures. Tuesday has a slightly better chance of a shower or two with continued pleasant temperatures.

The early Thursday front carries very precipitation--only an isolated shower possible Wednesday. Thursday has fewer clouds and only slightly cooler temperatures.
