Take a peek at the video above...I delve into some of the modeling for next week in there.
We will indeed enjoy some fantastic weather today with lots of sun and highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s here in the Piedmont. Enjoy!
A cold front will swing into the region later tonight. That front will spread clouds in later this evening, and a few showers are possible from after midnight tonight into early tomorrow morning. Some sun will then try to work back in tomorrow afternoon.
Chilly weather settles back in for Sunday with highs back into the 40s again.
Like I have been discussing, we will be in a very complex split flow pattern next week. The timing and nature of precip chances is always hard to nail down in these types of patterns. However, a lot of the modeling this morning has come back around to the ideas I have been discussing here.
It looks like we will have a good chance of some precip Tuesday into Tuesday night next week....maybe as early as Monday night in spots. There remains the potential that we could have a cold air damming scenario unfold, depending on the exact placement and orientation of an area of high pressure off to our north. It is still WAY to early for any confidence with this type of weather pattern, but I still think there is some potential for wintry precip in portions of the Piedmont sometime around Tuesday.
It might wind up being a cold rain, or it could be an icy scenario. Time will tell....
