Shower Likely Late Tonight

Outside of a few morning showers it turned out to be a rather pleasant day. After a lull in the action showers (some thunder) arrive courtesy of Kentucky and Tennessee in a more organized fashion after midnight. Light rain hangs around early Sunday, with some clearing by late afternoon and another mild finish.

Forecast Discussion

Between now and Monday morning an area of low pressure is moving southeast from Missouri to the Georgia coast passing overhead late tonight. Ahead of the low, showers and severe storms gain steam moving from Indiana and Kentucky towards western NC. However as they encounter more stable air on this side of the mountains they will fall apart to an extent existing mainly as showers after midnight. Some thunder cannot be ruled out. A few showers or light rain is around through Sunday morning with a little clearing slated by late in the day.

Monday and Tuesday are dry and quite nice as another area of low pressure gains steam moving from the Southern Plains eastwards along the Gulf Coast. Clouds increase late Tuesday with showers breaking out Wednesday. It's fair to call it a "chilly rain" for late April with temperatures 15 degrees or more below normal.

By Thursday the low turns north and heads up the East Coast with showers continuing in the morning hours. Thereafter, broad high pressure builds across eastern half of the country. Meaning, we'll get paid back for this weekend in a big way with near perfect May conditions to start off the month and lasting for several days.
