Diminishing Showers; Cooler Air Settles In

Cooler air has arrived behind a weak cold front that moved through the southern Appalachians earlier today. Skies stay partly to mostly cloudy. Showers have diminished this evening, (with the majority of activity out east near Charlotte) and will die out from west to east just after dark. For Wednesday, enough leftover moisture will be around for areas of patchy fog for the early morning hours. A terrific cool down is on tap for the rest of the week!

Forecast Discussion

A weak cold front just buzzed the southern Appalachians bringing in a few showers and storms earlier this afternoon with the front and the majority of the activity off to our east for this evening. Behind this cold front a cooler high pressure center sits over the central Plains. By tonight, the high pressure will have moved east into the Ohio Valley pushing the cold front into central North Carolina.

For Wednesday, a weak low system seems to form along the Carolina coast moving clouds and moisture inland, meanwhile we have a new wedge of high pressure extending down into the Blue Ridge from the northeast helping to lock in the clouds and moisture. With that being said, we could see some spotty showers for Wednesday. The low will meander off shore through Thursday before pulling out into the Atlantic and taking the clouds and moisture with it.

The wedge of high pressure strengthens Friday and stays in place into the weekend with cooler temperatures. For Friday, an area of moisture moves into the southern Appalachians from the Gulf coast where some showers for the afternoon-evening hours cannot be ruled out. We’ll see some clouds around early Saturday, the rest of the weekend looks pretty good with high pressure holding strong through Sunday afternoon. Clouds move back in Sunday evening with a step up in temperatures plus isolated showers ahead of our next frontal system bringing showers and thunderstorms back into play for Monday.
