Between Two Fronts

We are not between two ferns, but we are between two fronts today--one in the Atlantic, another stretching from the Great Lakes to the Great Plains. The front to our west passes through here late Thursday with a passing shower possible late-day or early evening. Then cool high pressure dominates the Eastern U. S. Friday and Saturday. Valley frost is a good bet for sunrise Saturday.

Forecast Discussion

Tuesday's front is in the Atlantic. A front that will arrive late Thursday is zipping eastward through the Great Lakes and Great Plains.

After a breezy, cool start, we ended up with a clear end to the day. Expect more clouds late Thursday with a passing shower possible late-day or early-evening.

A large area of cool high pressure overtakes the Eastern U. S. Friday and Saturday. Temperatures will be 10 degrees below seasonal averages with valley frost at sunrise Saturday.

Sunday and Monday have the next front approaching from the west with low pressure forming near Cape Hatteras. Clouds increase Sunday. Showers are possible late Sunday through Monday morning.

By Tuesday, the front will be well to our east in the Atlantic. High pressure centered in Tennessee will control our weather with temperatures cooler than average but not as cool as Friday/Saturday.

After a quiet time in the Atlantic, a disturbance is in the Eastern Caribbean. It will be watched for development this weekend.
