Sunny But Chilly

It's an active weather week ahead as systems zip across the Southeast through early next week. But not today as high pressure centered to our north builds southward providing a sunny but cold Wednesday. The high remains in control on Thursday however as moisture returns late Thursday night into early Friday morning, we'll contend with a brief period of freezing rain for early Friday morning, especially along the Blue Ridge. Warmer air from the south will change all frozen precip to a cold rain by the mid-morning hours on Friday. Rain ends Saturday morning with a nice seasonable finish to our weekend on Sunday.

Discussion

Sunny But Chilly

High pressure builds over the interior Northeast and wedges down the eastern side of the Appalachians through Thursday. This results in sunny but cold weather for us through Thursday afternoon. Meanwhile, low pressure develops in the northern Gulf and starts a journey up the eastern seaboard late Thursday night through Saturday.

With cold air locked in place, freezing rain develops late Thursday night and continues into the daylight hours Friday morning before changing over to rain. Cold holdouts along the Blue Ridge may contend with freezing rain a few hours longer, but the transition is inevitable. At this point, we do not expect a major icing event. Rain continues Friday night into Saturday morning. After a dry Saturday afternoon a trailing upper disturbance brings a quick round of flurries and snow showers back to the area Saturday night.

But wait, there's more. Low pressure develops in Texas Monday morning and rides northeast to the Carolinas Tuesday. Rain develops Monday/Monday night and continues into Tuesday morning. Colder air returns for the middle of next week.
