Morning Muck, Brighter Afternoon
This morning starts off a lot like yesterday with fog and spotty light rain/drizzle. However, the afternoon promises modest improvements in the way of brighter skies and warmer temperatures. After a 24-hour reprieve showers and thundershowers return Wednesday afternoon as a front approaches from the west. The frontal passage is slow as an area of low pressure rides along the boundary Thursday contributing to a rather wet day. A few residual showers remain in play Friday, but the general theme is "nicer" as we get into the weekend.

The cool wedge of high pressure responsible for the recent "muck" begins to erode this afternoon yielding to brighter skies and a brief drying trend. Before we get there spotty light rain/drizzle and fog stick around through the morning hours, particularly near the Blue Ridge.
A front approaches late Wednesday and limps slowly to our east Thursday as a wave of low pressure rides along the frontal boundary. Showers and thundershowers develop tomorrow afternoon ahead of the front and showers persist through the day Thursday. After a brief temperature rebound tomorrow temperatures remain on the cool side Thursday thanks to overcast skies and rain.
Some residual showers remain in the picture Friday as the front finally pushes east. However, a secondary front sweeps through Saturday contributing to nuisance level afternoon showers once again. Additionally, a whole-hearted drying trend gets underway to close out the weekend and start next week.
Meanwhile, a tropical area of low pressure trolls the NC coast today and tomorrow. Fortunately the system is progressive and weak and heads back out to sea off the Mid-Atlantic coast Wednesday night.
