Forecast Discussion

A slowly modifying Arctic high pressure will be with us through Wednesday. Tonight will be clear and very cold, and Wednesday features sunshine with a milder afternoon.

Low-pressure coming out of Texas on Thursday will reach the Mid-South on Thursday before tracking over us on Friday. Clouds return on Thursday, with a rainy Friday expected.

This system should be moving up the Eastern Seaboard by Saturday, with the potential for wrap-around snow showers and flurries across the mountains. Sunday should turn sunny with near-normal temperatures.
