We Can’t Shake These Clouds NC 10-14-13

We just can't seem to get rid of this pesky area of low pressure off the Carolina coast.  A moist, easterly wind flow persisted all weekend and made for less than stellar conditions for leaf viewers. It continues today, meaning more fog, clouds, and sprinkles in some spots.  Ugh.

The low off the coast should begin to drift off to the southeast today.  As a result, tomorrow will see early morning fog again, but once that burns off we should see plenty of intervals with sunshine for the rest of the day.  Temps will be a few degrees warmer than in recent days as a result.

Our next cold front looks to move through the region very early on Thursday/really late Wednesday night.  Increasing clouds on Wednesday will lead to evening and nighttime scattered showers.  This system won't produce a ton of rain, but upslope flow behind the frontal passage will keep showers going in spots through the day on Thursday.

High pressure briefly settles in for Friday.  It will be much cooler even with a good bit of sunshine.  Most locations will struggle to hit 60.

There is uncertainty for the forecast on Saturday as the two main models disagree on what's going to happen.  Right now, we'll go with Saturday being cool and damp with showers as a cold front pushes through.  Sunday will see clearing conditions, but temps will be very cool, dare I say chilly.

The weekend forecast could change as the week progresses.  Model runs in the next few days will give us a better idea of what's going to happen.

Don't get too excited, but it looks like the first couple of days next week might yield the first widespread frost of autumn.
