More Representative of August

There are some areas of patchy fog around for the early morning hours then things remain pretty status quo the next few days. The recent trend of below normal temperatures slowly turns around this afternoon as warmer air builds for the rest of the work week. Showers and storms fall in the "isolated" to "widely scattered" category until this weekend when cooler and more unsettled weather arrives. Overall, it looks and feels like August for a change.

Forecast Discussion

The weather is in somewhat of a holding pattern until late this week and this weekend. A heat ridge is building in the Deep South and eventually expands eastward making for the hottest days of the summer, but that doesn't occur next week.

In the meantime we are void of any frontal passages until Friday. Showers and storms will be driven by daytime heating and weak disturbances in the upper flow. One exception, a cluster of showers and storms will drop southeast from the Ohio Valley late tonight making a bee line for east TN. A few could hold together to bring an early morning round of showers or thunderstorms Wednesday, but we'll have to see how that begins to evolve this evening.

Friday, a backdoor cool front moves from the Mid-Atlantic to South Carolina followed by high pressure wedging against the east side of the Appalachians this weekend. While we have seen this scenario almost countless times this summer (why always on a weekend?) this is not as strong of a wedge event. Clouds, scattered showers, and cooler air returns but not depressingly so. What is more unusual during this time frame is the extent of hot air (hottest of the summer) just west of the mountains. So close, yet so far...heads up, that is coming our way soon.
