Passing Clouds and Above Normal Temps
Published: 11.27.15 5:01am
Good Morning Folks! We will keep it short and sweet today as there remains some discrepancy among the models in regards to the upcoming light rain events and more time is needed to work out some kinks. We will still feel confident with our forecast, just not so much the exact timing of the cold fronts expected to arrive late Sunday and then once again late Tuesday/early Wednesday. Regardless, we expect a comfortable day across the region today and tomorrow as passing clouds make up most of the action with temps above normal and by Sunday they may be even warmer. It seems clouds arrive Sunday and so does a steady southerly flow which will keep temps above normal through the weekend. Isolated showers are possible Sunday but nothing to worry about if you have outdoor plans as the bulk of the rain looks to fall sometime Monday through Tuesday, ending Wednesday morning. This does not seem to be a prolonged event, more so a stretch of spotty showers connected only by short windows of reprieve.
Today and tomorrow look fairly pleasant as sunshine filters in through passing clouds and even with more clouds than sun sitting overhead, temps will still push into the low 50’s – mid 60’s each afternoon (Saturday a few degrees warmer than today). Overnight lows will settle into the low – mid 40’s through the weekend and this pattern of above normal low temps will continue through at least Tuesday night, with a switch to near freezing temps by the middle of next week.
Sunday itself will feature mostly cloudy skies and isolated showers as southerly flow ramps up across the region, producing temps in the mid 50’s – mid 60’s range. Isolated showers are more likely along the SC state line than say the TN line, so another comfortable day is in store for most of the region. Overnight into Monday will feature a steady increase in precip coverage and as such temps will only settle into the low – mid 40’s once again.
Monday and Tuesday make up most of the shower activity across the region for the next week or so as scattered showers pepper the landscape from time to time with no real consistent rainfall. This will keep rainfall totals to the quarter – half inch range for our region and temps remain at or slightly above normal with a continuing southerly flow. Temps on Monday push into the upper 40’s – upper 50’s and the same goes for Tuesday, perhaps a degree or two colder. Overnight lows remain fixed to the low – upper 40’s each night and Tuesday night going into Wednesday is a possibility for a frontal passage, so the chance for increased coverage exist during this timeframe.
Wednesday will feature showers early in the morning and perhaps sunny skies late as cooler air pushes into the area as the front exits to the east. This should translate into afternoon highs in the mid 40’s – mid 50’s, but more importantly the overnight lows will dip into the low – upper 30’s which is right around normal for this time of year. Taking a sneak peek into late next week it seems a mixed bag of sun and clouds will sit overhead with seasonal temps, however more rain looks to arrive for next weekend.
Overall, comfortable today and tomorrow with cloudy skies overhead Sunday followed by scattered showers Monday and Tuesday and then clearing skies Wednesday. ENJOY!
