Forecast Discussion

A weak front is stalled just to our north today. It moves northward as a warm front Tuesday and Wednesday. A stray shower is possible this afternoon and perhaps a stray rumble of thunder, greatest chance is in the far NW corner of NC. Tuesday, we have plenty of moisture with limited energy; however, expect slightly increased coverage of showers tomorrow (maybe a rumble of thunder). Shower coverage is lower Wednesday. Temperatures are warmer than average through Wednesday.

A cold front from the northwest delivers a significant cold punch late Thursday. Expect showers as it moves through Thursday morning, then colder temperatures, gusty winds, and decreasing clouds. Friday is unseasonably chilly with blustery conditions.

Cold Canadian high pressure moves across the Eastern U. S. Friday. Meanwhile, low pressure develops in south Texas. the low moves our way this weekend. Saturday is cool with increasing clouds. Rain develops Saturday night and continues through much of Sunday.
