Forecast Discussion

Cooler and drier air settled into the region today allowing for a rather decent evening. Thursday, though a high pressure is in effect, clouds will slowly start to build as a the risk for afternoon showers increase. Friday is the pivotal day as we begin to feel the effects of the next low pressure system that will be heading our way.

This weekend, a low pressure system from the great lakes will hit us with a double whammy: a warm front, followed by a cold front. Saturday, the warm front will ignite the atmosphere, generating scattered showers and thunderstorms for our area. Then Sunday, the cold front plays the same song with a different instrument with more lasting effects. Meaning, that the cold front will move slower than the previous warm front, hanging around at least until the middle of next week, while still keeping showers and thunderstorms in the forecast.
