Discussion

More Sunshine; Cooler, Unsettled Thursday

A cold front is hung-up over the central and eastern part of the state today, but will get a kick eastward tonight. More sunshine is expected today, although an evening or nighttime shower will be possible.

An upper level low-pressure system will then take shape over the central and southern Appalachians on Thursday. It will generate more in the way of cloud cover along with scattered showers (perhaps some thunder). It will also have you reaching for a jacket as we expect below-normal temperatures as a result of this potent weather feature.

Rain should be out of the picture by Friday as the upper low sloshes to the north of the area. With ample sunshine, temperatures will still be refreshingly cool.

Looking ahead, the weekend looks fantastic with nearly full sunshine and near-normal temperatures to bring in October.
