A Washout Today

Hopefully you were able to enjoy yesterday’s weather, as the next several days are going to be pretty nasty.  An area of low pressure will track across the upstates of Georgia and South Carolina today, bringing widespread showers to our region.  Today is pretty much going to be a washout.  Heaver rain and thunderstorms will stay to our south while snow is a possibility for areas up into Virginia and West Virginia.  The rain will taper off by tonight as the system moves off to our east.

Another low will impact our area by the afternoon tomorrow.  Temperatures aloft will be colder for this system, meaning rain will change to snow beginning Thursday night and lasting into Friday.  Temperatures at the surface are going to be borderline freezing, so I’m thinking it will be a scenario similar to Monday, where a very wet snow falls and doesn’t accumulate all that much.  Higher elevations could see a dusting to an inch maybe.  This is not going to be a significant snow event.

Highs on Friday will rise into the 40’s and light showers will remain prevalent across the area.  The possibility of a few more snow showers does exist Friday night, but once again it will not be anything of significance.

A clipper system will quickly pass through the region Saturday, meaning it will be very windy and fairly chilly with winds coming from the northwest.  Precip isn’t expected though. 

We should see a shift in the weather pattern on Sunday, beginning with the passage of a warm front.  Next week looks warmer, but rain remains in the forecast as of now.  Keep checking back for more info.
