More Rain Rain Rain NC 5-8-13

Just how much rain have we seen over the past few days?  Brad Panovich posted a pretty interesting tidbit of information on his Twitter account this morning.  “Over the past 14 days the Western Carolinas has had between 400-600% of our normal rainfall over that period”.  Yeah, it's been a pretty soggy few weeks.

Unfortunately, the rain continues today as an upper low continues to track off to the northeast.  Daytime heating and wraparound flow on the backside of the system will create showers and possibly even some thunderstorms this afternoon.

Tomorrow sees the return of sunshine and warmer temperatures!  Hoozah!  We'll start out the day with some fog but we should see a good amount of blue skies.  Temps will be normal to slightly above average for this time of year.  We'll be in a moist airmass so daytime heating could lead to an afternoon shower or thunderstorm.

Enjoy tomorrow because the weekend will be wet.  A cold front will move through sometime later on Saturday.  Showers and thunderstorms are expected and will continue into Sunday afternoon.  Colder air filters in behind the frontal passage and Sunday night looks chilly.  Frost looks like a possibility when you wake up Monday morning.

High pressure at the surface will make for a sunny start to the work week.  Even so, temps will return to below average levels again.  Monday night looks ridiculously cold for May.  We could be looking at a widespread freeze.

Tuesday will see the sunshine continue and temps will be bumped up several notches.
