Nice Today, Rainy This Weekend NC 4-26-13

The end of the work week is going to be a nice one.  Sunshine and near normal temperatures for this time of year will have you jonesing for the weekend.  Unfortunately, after today we have a weekend of rain ahead of us.

High pressure over the Northeast will create a wedge of cool air on the eastern side of the Appalachians.  Temps this weekend will be a good 10-12 degrees below normal.  At the same time, an area of low pressure will track along a stationary frontal boundary located just off to our west.  What does all of this mean?  The weekend will be cool and damp, with showers throughout the entire period.  Bummer!

A moist airmass combined with an upper level shortwave (weather nerd lingo) will keep showers going into the beginning of next week as well.  Monday and Tuesday both have a chance of precip in the forecast at this time.
