Warm in the Rearview for Now

A cold front moved through Wednesday night--the leading edge of a pattern change that will keep cooler than average temperatures over the Southern Appalachians for the next 8-9 days. Skies will be mostly clear tonight, with a gusty northwest wind persisting. Friday has more sun and less wind, but the same cool temperatures. Looking toward the weekend... Low pressure along the Gulf Coast spreads clouds and a few showers northward Saturday afternoon and evening. Sunday has clouds but little if any rain. Cool weather continues.

Forecast Discussion

A front moved through from the northwest Wednesday night. It settles south and stalls, located from the Atlantic, across Florida and to South Texas and basically remains there for the next 9 days. Cold high pressure centered in the northern Rockies and western Canada sends 3 surges of cooler air into the Southeast between tonight and next Thursday. Overall, mostly dry and cooler than average temperatures are the results for us.

As last night's front sank southeast today, our skies gradually cleared out. Winds will continue to be gusty tonight, with cold overnight low temperatures. Cool, quieter weather holds Friday.

Low pressure moves east, along the stalled front on the Gulf Coast this weekend. It will be off the Southeast Atlantic Coast early next week. The only noticeable effect here will be more clouds this weekend and scattered showers Saturday afternoon and evening. I cannot completely rule out a stray light shower Sunday, that's barely worth mentioning.

Monday has more sun and temperatures will rebound a couple degrees.

The third little push of cooler air arrives Wednesday. A brief return flow ahead of that creates an ever-so-slight chance of a stray, light, passing shower Tuesday afternoon.
