Forecast Discussion

On the weather map, the dying remnant of Nicholas was over Louisiana, with deeper tropical moisture moving into Mississippi and Alambama. Meanwhile, a cold front is moving into the Ohio Valley. High pressure off the Mid-Atlantic coast ridges westward into the Carolinas. A new tropical low north of the Bahamas may develop, but will move over open waters of the western Atlantic.

Both Nicholas and the incoming frontal boundary will be fading off the map over the next 24-48 hours. However, some tropical moisture will feed north ahead of these features into the western Carolinas. As a result, our shower chances will be going up, although without a focusing mechanism to squeeze this tropical moisture, the coverage of showers and thundershowers will be no worse than scattered over the next few days.

Gradually over the weekend, high pressure will begin to re-assert itself. That means a drying trend throughout the troposphere will commence starting Sunday and through the early part of next week.

Temperatures will remain above normal, but after today, will be muted a bit by cloudiness. Sunshine should start to become more prominent again over the weekend.
