Another Few Days of Rain Ahead for the High Country

Another couple days of rain lie ahead.  The good news is that Friday and Saturday now look as if we will stay dry.  I feel like it's been a while since we've had consecutive days where rain wasn't expected!

An upper disturbance will move overhead today.  The combination of this feature and the warm and moist airmass we're currently in is going to produce afternoon showers and storms.  The short range models are showing a pretty nasty line of storms developing after lunch and lasting into the overnight hours.  With the already saturated ground, you can expect localized flash flooding in some spots.

A cold front will push through the region tomorrow evening.  Showers and storms are expected to commence in the late morning hours and continue into the afternoon before tapering off in the evening.  Once again, the flash flooding potential will be there due to the already saturated ground.

High pressure from the north builds in behind the frontal passage for Friday and Saturday.  Temps will be slightly cooler and humidity will be noticeably lower.  Oh yeah, and there will be a good bit of sunshine as well.  Hoozah!

There's a lot of uncertainty about what's going to happen Sunday through Tuesday.  The remnants of Tropical Storm Chantal look to arrive in Georgia on Sunday.  Monday sees an upper low track south across the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast states.  Right now, the forecast for this time period consists of cloudy conditions with scattered showers and storms each day.  This could change though.
