Continued Warm Weather and Sunshine NC 4-10-13

Another summer-esque day is in store for today as high pressure over the western Atlantic continues to pump in warmer air from the south.  It’s going to feel more like June, enough said.

A very strong cold front continues to slowly progress across the central portion of the country.  It’s been producing some interesting weather over the last few days.  It will continue it’s trek today and tomorrow before crossing the region Friday morning.  Tomorrow will see cloud cover increasing throughout the day and some afternoon showers are possible.  However, the heavy precip arrives tomorrow night when thunderstorms are expected, some which could be severe.

Showers and thunderstorms continue into Friday morning before things begin to quiet down once the front moves through.  Precip should taper off by midday for the most part, if not earlier.  Rainfall totals with this system look to be pretty decent.  An inch plus is a safe bet for most of the region.  Some of the model runs have some rather impressive totals, with some showing 2 inches plus in a very short period of time.

High pressure builds back in behind the front.  Temperatures for Friday through the weekend will be much cooler than the first half of the week.  Overall, it looks like a pleasant weekend though.

Monday and Tuesday sees a return to warmer weather as high pressure once again sets up in the western Atlantic.  Another cold front is slated to move through Wednesday.
