Discussion

Mild Thru Wednesday; Cooler Thereafter

Today will be mild out ahead of a cold front that will silently be pushing through the area later this afternoon. It will usher in a cooler air mass by Thursday as skies remain mostly clear until Thursday afternoon.

A complex and rather interesting setup is coming together for the end of the workweek. Low-pressure that will be organizing in the northwestern Gulf of Mexico on Thursday will be infused by some of the moisture and energy from Hurricane Willa in the eastern Pacific Ocean (Willa will be making landfall along the west coast of Mexico later today). This Nor’easter-type low will then head up the Eastern Seaboard this weekend. Meanwhile, a wedge of chilly high pressure will be building down the eastern side of the Appalachian Mountains.

These ingredients come together for a cold, soaking rain for the mountains and Foothills on Friday. The low should get out of our way for the weekend, although a broad trough of low pressure in the upper levels of the atmosphere will keep the threat of a shower going into early next week.
