Forecast Discussion

Our weather so far this week has been determined by the location of a front stalled to our south and the timing of lows moving west to east along the front. That pattern continues through Thursday; however, the track will be a bit farther south than the previous two.

Rain develops tonight with areas of fog. Periods of rain continue Thursday and end during the evening. Cool temperatures continue.

An arctic front sweeps through Friday morning. Clearing skies, colder temperatures, and gusty winds follow. Saturday will be clear and cold.

Dry weather will hold Friday through Tuesday. I'll have to check today when was the last time we have had 5 consecutive dry days... it's been a long time. Milder temperatures return next week as high pressure moves across the Southeast and into the Atlantic. The next front arrives next Wednesday.
