A Wet Start to the Week NC 3-11-13

After a lovely weekend with sunshine and warmer temps, the next couple of days sees the return of unsettled weather.  A cold front is approaching the region and will move through tonight.  Cloud cover will persist today and are possible today.  However, the heavier rain arrives this evening and will continue until sometime after midnight.

Light showers will linger into tomorrow morning but should taper off by the time you get to work.  High temps tomorrow will be seasonable and intervals of sunshine will appear in the afternoon.

The colder air behind the front doesn’t arrive until tomorrow night.  Northwest flow, upper level disturbances, and low level moisture will accompany the burst of cold air.  What does all of this mean?  Scattered snow showers are expected beginning tomorrow night and will last into Wednesday.  Accumulations look to be minimal (a couple inches at best) and will mostly be relegated to the higher elevations near the NC/TN line.

High pressure will calm things down on Thursday but temperatures will remain on the chilly side as a gusty wind prevails.

The end of the work week looks really nice as temperatures moderate to near/slightly below normal levels.

The weekend doesn’t look terrible, but it won’t be as good as this past one.   A frontal boundary looks to keep clouds and precip chances, albeit low ones, in play for Saturday and Sunday.
