Valley Frost Tonight

After a sunny, cool, breezy Monday, tonight is chilly with diminishing wind. Valley frost is expected later tonight. Clouds increase late Tuesday as low pressure moves east along the Gulf Coast in a classic wintertime fashion. Wednesday is chilly and rainy. As the low moves up the East Coast, Thursday will be mostly cloudy, cool and showery. Once the low exits into the Atlantic, Friday through the weekend brings gradually warmer weather. We'll enjoy a terrific next weekend.

Many thanks go to the fine folks at Merlefest for another terrific festival. Chilly temperatures Saturday and Sunday did NOT steal the show. The Festival will be remembered for 100s of great performances (The Avett Brothers Saturday night was my personal highlight).

Forecast Discussion

There's light at the end of this chilly tunnel, but it will take 4-5 days to get there...

Today was cool and breezy with few clouds. Saturday night's front reaches the Gulf Coast, and high pressure settles into the East, centered in the Great Lakes. As winds settle in valleys tonight, valley frost is a good bet. Tuesday afternoon is slightly warmer with increasing clouds.

The next weather event of note is low pressure moving along the Gulf Coast late Tuesday and Wednesday. It will reach Charleston, SC, Wednesday evening and then turn northeast to near Hatteras by late Thursday. That's a classic wintertime snow track, but since it's late April, we get a cold rain Wednesday. Rain tapers off Wednesday evening, becoming more showery and lasting through Thursday. Temperatures Wednesday and Thursday will be very chilly--we'll just grin and bear it knowing that this is winter's last hurrah.

Friday through the weekend, low pressure exits northeast into the Atlantic. Friday starts with cool and clouds; however, by Friday afternoon, we'll start the climb out of this cold hole. The weekend looks terrific--pleasant temperatures and sunshine.
