Forecast Last Updated at Tuesday, September 23, 2014 at 1:15PM

Ready, Set, Go!

There is a lot going on behind the scenes the next couple of days with high pressure centered over the interior Northeast and low pressure moving along the NC/SC coast. Western NC and Virginia will be the winners this round with an emphasis on mostly dry weather. We'll still see a fair amount of clouds through Thursday with a barely mentionable shower opportunity Wednesday night. Thereafter, auto-pilot is set with extremely nice Fall weather until early next week.

A new version of the app is now available for both Android and Apple products. The new version includes NWS alerts, a refresh button, SplashScreen, and better choices for font sizes.

Forecast Discussion

An area of low pressure spends the next few days slowly working from the Georgia coast north to the Mid-Atlantic. It is a good week to be in the mountains and not at the beach. Meanwhile high pressure is camped over the Great Lakes and Northeast and assumes that role into the weekend. "Backwash" clouds from the coastal disturbance arrived early this morning before temperatures had a chance to bust a move. Under the extensive cloud cover it will be tough to rebound this afternoon. As the low moves north and an easterly flow persists Wednesday and Thursday clouds hang tight with a "cannot rule out shower" late Wednesday night.

Beyond Thursday and into the weekend it is smooth sailing. Start making plans now! Temperatures hover right around late September normals with a fair amount of sunshine.

Early next week a disturbance moves from the northern Gulf of Mexico into the Mississippi Valley. There are still questions as to its exact whereabouts Monday and Tuesday, but it should be close enough to bring a return of clouds and showers by Monday, at the latest Tuesday. We'll lean that direction for now, increasing clouds late Sunday, scattered showers Monday with more of the same Tuesday.
