A Cool and Damp Forecast NC 5-2-13

As mentioned yesterday, showers, cool temps, and grey skies greeted you this morning.  Southeasterly upslope flow should diminish as the day wears on, meaning showers should taper off by the afternoon.  The clouds will stick around though and high temps won't get out of the 50's.

High pressure at the surface will make for a decent day tomorrow.  After a foggy start, we should see intervals of sunshine in the afternoon.  Temps remain on the cool side.

If you like the weather in Seattle, you'll love the forecast for Saturday through the first part of the next week!  Cloudy, cool, damp conditions are the name of the game.  An omega block over the eastern US will keep a cold front and upper level low at bay and just off to our west through the weekend.  Ahead of these two features, we'll be in an area of moist southeasterly flow.  Fog, clouds, and showers will persist through this time period.

The frontal boundary and accompanying upper low finally break through and erode the east coast blocking pattern on Monday.  Heavier rain actually arrives Sunday night and continues through Monday.  Monday looks like a washout.

Scattered showers persist into Tuesday before we finally begin to see things clear up on Wednesday.  Temperatures should also rebound by then.
