Another nice day on tap before a few showers move into the western mountains tonight
We expect a nice recovery with the temperatures through the midday and afternoon as our highs peak in the mid to upper 60s. Sunday planner (WSLS)A front will approach the area from the west and drive extra clouds into the area for tonight. A few showers could be sparked in the western mountains, with drier conditions expected in Roanoke and east of the Blue Ridge. Upper level pattern Tuesday 4 p.m. (WSLS)A front could cause a slight dip in the jet and give us a brief cool down for Thursday and Friday. Upper level pattern Thursday 4 p.m. (WSLS)The warm air really takes over next weekend and beyond.
You can blame “the wedge” for our gloomy Saturday weather
That air gets wedged up against our mountains and we’ll see cloudy and cooler conditions as a result. We also will have a front to our south, which could provide enough lift for periods of drizzle or light showers. Future Tracker Sunday 8 p.m. (WSLS)We’ll have another warm day Monday with some spotty storms around as the front slowly sinks south through our area. Behind the front, look for cooler and drier air to filter into the region for the middle of the week. Highs Tuesday and Wednesday are likely to stay in the 70s and we’ll feel a noticeable dip in humidity!
How a cold front and Arthur could make this work week awfully wet
Sunday planner (WSLS)Were tracking a cold front to the west and Tropical Storm Arthur off the Southeast U.S. coast. Those systems look like theyll work in tandem to provide wet weather during the upcoming work week. Future Tracker (Sunday 5 a.m.) (WSLS)As Arthur moves closer to the North Carolina coast Monday, the front will move westward. Rain chances may gradually come down late in the work week and into the weekend. Flooding concerns may be possible on any of those days, so stay tuned to coming forecasts for those details.
