Gonna Get Old
Sunshine will be a scarce commodity for the foreseeable future--maybe Monday we'll get a brief glimpse. A front takes up residence across the Southeast, and a series disturbances will move eastward along that boundary. Here's the "train schedule": early this morning, Sunday night, Tuesday night, Friday. Cool temperatures and gray skies rule with periods of rain focused around but not limited to the times listed. Fog will be an issue especially along the Blue Ridge through Sunday night. Two periods of cold wedges raise the potential for freezing rain--brief and light Sunday morning and a more significant potential late Tuesday and Tuesday night (possibly sleet and a smidgen of snow).

Umbrella futures are up. A stalled front will be located to our southeast through the next 7 days. A series of lows will move east along that boundary. The result will be cool temperatures and generally gray skies with some fog at times. Rain will be a recurring theme: Saturday morning, Sunday into early Monday (especially Sunday night), Tuesday night til Thursday morning, and redeveloping Friday.
Colder air will wedge down the Appalachians tonight and again Tuesday. We could have a brief period of light freezing rain Sunday morning. But a more significant cold air damming event occurs Tuesday creating the potential for a wintry mix Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night. Areas right along the Blue Ridge will be the most prone for freezing precipitation.
Our best chance for a break in the precipitation is Monday afternoon and Monday night. Make the most of it. We expect chilly air to be scoured briefly Thursday. Those are the two exceptions to clouds and persistent precipitation.
