A secondary front arrives Tuesday night with potential for light snow showers or freezing drizzle.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure is centered in the Atlantic producing a southerly flow and milder weather.

The winter furlough is short-lived. A front moves through late Monday night. Ahead of the front, skies become cloudy Monday and rain arrives Monday night (light rain could begin late in the afternoon).

Showers end early Tuesday followed by a return to colder weather (not the deep freeze, just back to seasonal numbers). A secondary front arrives with the colder air Tuesday night. Snow showers or freezing drizzle could accompany that secondary front. Tuesday will be windy, especially Tuesday night.

Wednesday through Friday, high pressure moves across the Eastern U. S. Expect dry weather and seasonal temperatures. By Friday, it produces a cool wedge down the east side of the Appalachians.

The next front arrives late next weekend, and it will tap considerable Gulf moisture. Saturday looks cloudy and foggy with light rain and drizzle developing. Saturday night and Sunday look quite wet before colder weather arrives.
