A Chilly Start to Mother's Day

Published: 5.14.17 5:36am

Good Morning Folks and Happy Mother’s Day! We are off to a chilly start this morning as temps sit in the mid – upper 40’s across the region, which is about 5 – 8 degrees cooler than normal for the lower elevations. Yesterday’s rainfall added another tenth – quarter inch to the running total, pushing us to a half inch or more on average across the region over the two day period. Sunshine will dominate the landscape today through Wednesday, with possible pop up showers Thursday into next weekend as moisture begins to build across the Southeast. Temps today through Thursday will be above average, peaking on Tuesday and Wednesday as they hit the low 70’s – mid 80’s depending upon elevation, which is roughly 10 – 12 degrees above average. All in all, not much action this week and temps will likely be the only thing to discuss as shower chances remain limited till the end of the week. 

Sunshine today will bring temps from the mid – upper 40’s this morning to the mid 60’s – low 80’s depending upon elevation. Overnight lows will dip into the upper 40’s – low 50’s under clear skies, with patchy fog possible closer to the lakes. 

Mostly sunny skies continue into Monday and hang around through Wednesday, possibly Thursday, with temps rising to the mid 60’s – low 80’s Monday and peaking to the low 70’s – mid 80’s both Tuesday and Wednesday. Temps cool down a degree or two Thursday and Friday as they hit the upper 60’s – low 80’s, with a few clouds developing late in the day Thursday and Friday as isolated showers pop up because of the afternoon heat and increasing moisture. Starting Wednesday, we’ll notice an increase in low level moisture and this is due to the high pressure system sliding off the coast, spinning tropical moisture into the Southeast, which is fairly common each summer. Overnight lows will generally dip into the mid 50’s – low 60’s each night. 

Overall, a quiet stretch of days lie ahead with temps continuing to reach above average temps each afternoon and isolated showers are likely later in the week. ENJOY!
