Moderating Temperatures NC 3-28-13

What a beautiful, but still unseasonably chilly day across the region.  Sunshine has returned and is nice to see after a brutal first half of the week.  That trend will continue for the rest of the day and most of tomorrow as well as high pressure sits atop the region.  Tomorrow looks to be a good 10 degrees warmer than today, but that’s still below normal for this time of year.

A weak frontal boundary sets up Friday night between two areas of high pressure, one to our southeast and one over the Ohio Valley.  Some light showers are possible Friday night and Saturday as a result, but these will be scattered at best.

Another cold front looks to move through Sunday night.  Ahead of it, rain showers look to be a good bet for the final day of the weekend.

Monday is going to be the mildest day we’ve seen in a while.  And by mild, I mean near normal temperatures.  Southwesterly wind flow will help high temperatures rise into the mid and upper 50’s for a lot of locations.  However, cloud cover will be increasing throughout the day.

Don’t get too used to the milder temperatures because another Arctic front moves through Monday night.  Rain in the late evening could change over to snow showers at night and last into Tuesday morning.  It’s too far off to say for sure.  However, it’s clear that Canadian high pressure returns behind the front and Tuesday and Wednesday will see the return of colder temperatures.
