One system leaving...another headed in Sunday...

>> Friday, January 22, 2010

Lots of lingering moisture behind our latest storm system today. That will mean lingering clouds and some light rain and drizzle today, especially this morning. Temps will struggle to climb out of the 30s into the lower 40s.

We should be dry tomorrow, but our next system will cruise in Sunday. This still looks to produce a good rain event, mainly later Sunday into Sunday night.

We will also have to monitor for at least a small chance for a couple of strong to severe storms. Instability will be largely lacking, but there will be a ton of shear, meaning some low-topped thunderstorms can't be ruled out Sunday afternoon and evening.

All systems look like a 'go' for the pattern change I have been talking about for a while now. Next week will be chillier, and as we head into February, a cold pattern looks to lock in for a while.

Late next week, a system will approach. The European model indicates rain, but a lot of other modeling is leaning toward a colder scenario. This might wind up being a case where the Euro is in error.....See the video for some thoughts on this.

So if it thunders on Sunday, we can put that old adage to the test, It should snow within ten days of thunder in the winter time. Charlotte has had some bad luck with winter weather this year, but this will be interesting to see how it plays out.
