Spring for Sure

The weather map has Spring written all over it with storms in the Great Plains today and seasonally warm temperatures in the Southeast. Part of the Spring weather map is a series of dynamic storm systems marching from Oklahoma, across the Ohio Valley, and into the Mid-Atlantic. Rain for us will be focused on Thursday afternoon through much of Friday (heavy at times Thursday night); then again Monday into Tuesday. Thursday will be noticeably cooler under cloudy skies. Fog could be an issue Thursday.

Forecast Discussion

The last two days with showers and even thunder signal a full-blown change in the weather pattern. Classic Spring! That was the first of three lows over a 7-day period moving east across the country--Oklahoma, Ohio Valley, and Mid-Atlantic is the transit corridor.

Today, high pressure is moving across the northeast forming a wedge of cool air in to the Southern Appalachians. Wednesday is the most pleasant day of the week.

Moisture ahead of the next low overrides the cool air increasing clouds tonight. Thursday is cloudy and much cooler with showers developing in the afternoon. Fog will be an issue especially along the Blue Ridge. Thursday night looks quite rainy. Cool air is scoured northeast Friday. We'll be in the warm sector of the system Friday with showers and thundershowers diminishing by late afternoon.

A breezy NW flow develops Friday night into Saturday. Clouds will be stubborn keeping the chance of some drizzle in play into early Saturday morning. But clouds decrease leaving us with a pleasant Saturday afternoon and Sunday.

We repeat a similar sequence early next week... Clouds increase Sunday night ahead of the next low. Monday is cloudy, cooler, and rainy by afternoon and evening. Tuesday will be warmer with showers and thundershowers around.
