Rain; Steady or Rising Temps

You've seen the viral videos where someone looks into a water bottle, then they get their face sprayed when another person squeezes the bottle? The unwitting victim is us, and weather is the evil perpetrator. Add some ice to that bottle to complete the analogy. Temperatures will be steady or rising tonight. Steadier rain develops this evening. It could be freezing rain briefly right along the Blue Ridge. Rain ends early Monday leaving us with a mostly nice day to dry our faces. Dry weather continues into Tuesday; however, a wintry mix develops in the afternoon lasting through much of Tuesday night. Freezing rain will be the primary weather issue Tuesday night. Wednesday through the rest of this forecast will be rainy.

Forecast Discussion

The Western Gulf is the spigot, and a hose runs into the Southeast. The next 7 days will be wet; Monday is the only exception.

A persistent front will be located from the Southeast U. S. into the Western Gulf. Disturbance will move east along that boundary producing an extended period of unsettled weather. Today and again late Tuesday, chilly high pressure centered to our northeast will wedge into the Appalachians adding ice to our forecast.

Temperatures will be steady or rise overnight with steadier rain across the region.

Rain ends early Monday morning and temperatures will be briefly milder. Even the sun will make a brief appearance. Then temperatures become colder Monday night.

Moisture overruns the region again Tuesday with cold air trapped at the surface. Expect a wintry mix developing Tuesday afternoon continuing Tuesday night. A more significant period of icing is possible.

Wednesday through Saturday is monotonous--periods of rain. Wednesday will be chillier than Thursday through Saturday.
