Light Rain Today, More Tomorrow

Intervals of light rain are with us today as high pressure has wedged down the flanks of the Appalachians and a front makes inroads from the west. The wedge erodes overnight with steady to rising temperatures. Tuesday is relatively mild and wetter than today as the front moves through. Colder air invades behind the front and may spark some early morning flurries Wednesday before we dry out and sunshine returns.

Forecast Discussion

Cold air this week is fleeting and it's either chasing moisture or vacating the premises when moisture arrives. Cool high pressure is wedged down the Appalachians today and erodes tonight as a cold front approaches from the west. We'll have intervals of light rain around today and and a general lull in the action overnight. Temperatures are steady to rising overnight.

Tuesday is wetter, but milder of the two days along and just behind the cold front. As cold air fills in behind the front late Tuesday night a few flurries are possible Wednesday morning with snow showers at the highest elevations along the TN border. The ground is pretty warm and moisture is fleeting so any accumulations in no-man's-land way up top will be light. Wednesday and Thursday are seasonably chilly.

Chilly high pressure resumes the position over New England Thursday wedging down the Appalachians again. Meanwhile, low pressure develops in the Gulf sending moisture our direction Friday morning. It could begin as a brief wintry mix of sleet and freezing rain before quickly changing over to rain. Rain continues Friday into the first half of Saturday with moderating temperatures. We'll dry out by Saturday evening as the low rides up the East Coast. Sunday is quite pleasant and seasonably mild.
