Forecast Discussion

After a relaxed pace this weekend, weather forecasters in the East have a busy week coming.

A front stretches from South Carolina to Missouri. We are on the cool side of this front with moisture streaming eastward across the Southeast. We will have periods of mostly light rain tonight. Temperatures will be steady or rise tonight as the front moves north as a warm front.

Light rain ends quickly Tuesday. We may get a look at the sun in the afternoon, but the main thought will be how much warmer temperatures become. This is your best weather to vote during the early voting period.

Low pressure is moving from Oklahoma to Missouri today. It lumbers into Michigan by Wednesday as a big weather-maker. A cold front associated with this low moves across the Appalachians Wednesday. Cold air wraps in quickly on blustery NW winds. We'll have afternoon showers changing to snow showers late-day and Wednesday night.

Early flurries are possible Thursday morning with partial clearing by afternoon. Thursday will be cold and breezy.

A clipper-low moves quickly toward us in the northwest flow Friday. Expect another round of snow showers Friday afternoon and night, ending as flurries Saturday morning. Saturday remains cold and breezy.

We begin to break this cold period Sunday, but maybe not before one more round of flurries Saturday night.
