Light Rain Showers Tonight

Low pressure moves from Texas today to the Ohio Valley Monday night. Light rain develops tonight, then periods of rain continue Monday ending as light showers early Tuesday. Temperatures are held in check through the daytime Monday, but then warm significantly Monday night into Tuesday. Fog will be a travel issue Monday. Colder air returns in stepwise fashion Wednesday and Wednesday night leading to wintry precipitation Wednesday night into a cold Thursday.

Please pardon some broken pages... We completed the move to new servers Friday night. Now, we are in a position to bring back some broken pages; however, getting everything back to "normal" is still probably takes through the end of January.

Forecast Discussion

A complex weather pattern is in store early this week as low pressure moves from Texas today, across the Ohio Valley Monday night, and into the Atlantic late Tuesday.

We have light rain developing tonight and periods of rain Monday (with fog). Rain ends as light showers Tuesday morning. Temperatures are held in check through the daytime Monday, then rise Monday night leading to an unseasonably warm Tuesday.

Clearing skies will be brief late Tuesday into early Wednesday ahead of the next low that will move from the Western Gulf late Wednesday to near Cape Hatteras early Thursday. In the wake of this second low, upper-level energy with much colder air arrives Wednesday night and early Thursday. So... clouds return Wednesday. Precipitation arrives Wednesday evening, initially in the form of rain. Precipitation transitions to snow Wednesday night, and snow showers continue well into the daytime Thursday. Light snow accumulations are expected (a bit more at typically favored higher elevations near the TN/NC border).

Cold high pressure moves across the Eastern U. S. Friday in to Saturday. The next low takes a more northerly track with rain by Sunday (possibly beginning as a wintry mix Saturday night, but we held that thought out of the "forecast box" for now).
