Wet Weather Ahead

For the weekend, there are some salvageable hours, mainly in the morning like usual and in between showers. Having a backup plan will a smart move. It's the beginning of a prolonged unsettled weather pattern that persists through the upcoming week. Pretty much everyday will have good coverage of showers and thundershowers, especially Tuesday and Wednesday. On the bright side, temperatures are kept in check thanks to all the rain and clouds.

Forecast Discussion

The weather pattern beginning today through most of next week is dominated by a sprawling upper level disturbance that dips into the Ohio Valley and southern Appalachians. This feature gets sandwiched between an upper ridge of high pressure over the American Southwest and the Bermuda High in the Atlantic. Copious amounts of moisture are drawn northward from the Gulf and Atlantic resulting in plenty of rain. It will take a equally powerful front as this to escort this feature out and that won't occur until next weekend. Bottom Line: That's a lot of words to say it's going to be very wet over the next six days.

In terms of the weekend it's not a complete washout, but it continues this afternoon with a few showers and storms that look to roll in from the northwest. Just have a back-up plan and keep a watchful eye to the sky for the potential of some stronger storms late this afternoon.

Tuesday and Wednesday look to be the wettest days. Rainfall totals over the next seven days will likely be in the 2"-5" range with isolated higher amounts.
