Warm and Wet

Rain remains under a slow-moving cold frontal boundary. Expect some warm and juicy temperatures today in anticipation of the main push. By Monday, the roller coaster drop begins with a chill into Tuesday morning. Another quick pulse of some weather drama is possible Wednesday, and again this weekend, though both of these systems are a bit tricky to handle in the way of details for the time being. Stay tuned for updates!

Discussion

Warm and Wet

We remain in a tug of war between colder air to the north and a Bermuda High to our southeast. Being in the middle of competing pulls and pushes, expect clouds and areas of fog with stray light showers possible, especially late Saturday night and early Sunday. Sunday, the warmer Bermuda High takes a decisive edge on temperatures.

However, a front from the northwest moves through Monday with the next more pronounced period of rain--late Sunday night and Monday morning. After that, cooler air takes the tug of war win, for three days (Monday through Wednesday). Partial clearing commences Monday afternoon leading to a mostly clear and cooler Tuesday.

High pressure builds in from the north Tuesday providing a chilly but dry day. A low develops in the western Gulf states Tuesday and moves to the mid-Atlantic coast Wednesday. This system should bring a wintry mix Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Confidence is not high in this solution so stay tuned. A cold front with much colder air should move through late Thursday and it could bring some snow showers Thursday night.

Things get more interesting into the weekend, with building clouds on a chiller Friday. It remains to be seen the exact impacts of any weekend system, however, but the potential for weather drama means eyes should remain peeled...
