Leaning Away

The work week closes out on a warm note. Afternoon and evening thundershower opportunities gradually increase now through the weekend. This evening and Saturday have isolated thundershowers, and then "scattered" coverage Sunday as a front approaches from the north. The more unsettled pattern continues early next week as the front passes to our south late Monday and stalls across SC and GA. Temperatures fall accordingly with more clouds and showers.


Hi: 87 Lo: 66

Partly cloudy; Light NW wind

Hi: 86 Lo: 68

Partly cloudy; Warm; Isolated PM thundershowers; Light West wind

Hi: 83 Lo: 68

Partly to mostly cloudy; Scattered PM showers & thunderstorms; West wind 5-15 mph

Hi: 83 Lo: 64

Mostly cloudy; Not as warm; Scattered PM showers and thunderstorms

Hi: 81 Lo: 63

Partly sunny; Hit-or-miss PM showers and thundershowers

Further Out

Wednesday - Partly cloudy; Widely scattered PM showers and thundershowers; High near 80 degrees; Low in the mid 60s
Thursday - Partly cloudy; Widely scattered PM showers and thundershowers; High in the lower 80s; Low in the mid 60s

Forecast Discussion

The ridge of high pressure responsible for impressive heat in much of the middle and lower half of the country begins to breakdown over the weekend. This allows a frontal boundary to drop south from the Upper Midwest Sunday to the Carolinas Tuesday.

Beforehand, it's generally pretty quiet around here this evening and Saturday. There will be a a stray thundershower or two early this evening and few more Saturday, but many of us escape the cooling showers until Sunday.

Sunday and Monday, as the front draws closer we'll experience better coverage of showers and storms. Everyone should see a couple of good rounds during those afternoons.

Assuming the front makes it into SC and GA Tuesday, less warm, and slightly less unstable air moves into the southern Appalachians. It won't dry out, but the PM thundershower action becomes less organized.
