Not A Bad Saturday, But A Soaker Sunday

Clouds mixed with some sunshine gave way to scattered afternoon showers. Clouds thicken this evening with our next “weather maker” system approaching. Overnight Saturday, numerous showers will begin to move in and the “deluge” starts by Sunday morning with widespread moderate rain (heavy at times). Localized flooding may be an issue in some places.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure provided a nice start to the weekend around the mountains, with a mix of sun and clouds along with mild temperatures. There were a few afternoon scattered showers.

Steadier rain will arrive by daybreak Sunday as a warm front approaches the region. Sunday will be characterized by rain (heavy at times), and cooler temperatures.

The rain tapers off to a few lingering showers by Sunday evening. Monday gets really interesting with an approaching cold front set to cross over the Appalachians by the afternoon. We’ll see scattered showers and thunderstorms Monday afternoon lasting into the evening hours. Tuesday will provide some relief from the “wet & grey” barrage experienced Sunday-Monday as high pressure builds in from the west.

High pressure moves in behind the front Tuesday. We’ll likely see areas of patchy fog around Tuesday morning, but expect to dry out by noon with temperatures down a notch. With cooler temperatures settling in for Tuesday and Wednesday, some potential still remains for frost developing overnight and during the early morning. A dry front pushes in from the north Wednesday that will provide some clouds, but we don’t think there will be any precipitation associated with this for now. Clouds will hang around overnight Wednesday and into Thursday..
