Super Soaker Sunday

Low pressure deepens over northern Georgia today. The low will spread moisture over a wedge of chilly air banked up against the east side of the Appalachians. The result will be widespread rain which will fall heavily at times today and tonight. Temperatures hold nearly steady. And fog blankets the Blue Ridge. The low will move very slowly eastward, to a position near Charleston by Monday afternoon. The heaviest rain shifts east, but we’ll still be in the soup with periods of rain and chilly temperatures. Conditions improve on Tuesday. A cold front will bring a few more showers late Thursday and Thursday night.

Discussion

Super Soaker Sunday

A potent upper low will take it’s sweet time traversing the region over the next few days. The upper low will help to deepen surface low pressure over northern Georgia today. This will result in good southeast flow over a wedge of cool air that has developed along the east slopes of the mountains. This is a recipe for heavy rain, and we’ll see the waterworks in full swing today and tonight. There will even be a few “elevated” thunderstorms. Much of the Blue Ridge will be fogged in at least through tonight.

By Monday, the stacked surface and upper level low centers will have casually made their way to eastern South Carolina. This is expected to shift some very heavy rain into the Piedmont and coastal plain of the Carolinas. However, there will still be upslope flow into the mountains and across the foothills. This means Monday and Monday night will remain rainy.

The low continues its unhurried trek to the northeast on Tuesday. It’s starting to wind down a little at that point, and it appears that western NC will just see some morning showers, with much nicer conditions developing by the afternoon.

Wednesday certainly looks nice. But a cold front will bring a few showers back into the picture by late Thursday and Thursday night. Friday and Saturday look quite warm, more like late May or early June. This should make for some pleasant concert-going at Merlefest in Wilkesboro next weekend!
