Forecast Discussion

A dry front is moving through this evening. We were mild today, but an increasing NW wind let you know that colder temperatures are coming--tonight and Saturday. As high pressure moves east, across the eastern U. S., wind diminishes Saturday afternoon, and temperatures moderate somewhat by Sunday afternoon.

Low pressure in the SW U. S. today arrives in the Ohio Valley Monday. It drives a warm front to our north late Monday. Clouds increase Sunday afternoon. Rain arrives Sunday night. Monday is a gray day with periods of rain. Temperatures warm Monday night leading to a milder Tuesday with rain ending early Tuesday morning. Tuesday may be the most pleasant day since mid December.

But... Colder air returns in two steps: late Tuesday and late Wednesday. Then low pressure develops in the Western Gulf Wednesday. It moves east across the Gulf Coast Wednesday to the Carolina Coast by early Thursday. Clouds increase Wednesday. Precipitation develops Wednesday night continuing into Thursday, probably in the form of snow.
