I encourage you to watch today's edition of the video....docked below. Lots to talk about ahead.
The big weather story this weekend is an area of low pressure moving and strengthening from the northern Gulf and then up the Carolina coast into the Northeast US. This low pressure will wind up dumping impressive amounts of rain in eastern sections of the Carolinas.
How far inland the heavy rain totals make it remains a question mark. This could very well be a scenario where the I-95 area over to the coast picks up multiple inches of rain while areas from I-85 west get under an inch....and maybe well under and inch in the foothills and mountains.
Most of the rain with this system will be later Saturday night into Sunday, although there will be some showers and storms with the cold front Saturday afternoon.
Behind the system, some chilly air will arrive. Some locations could again have some frost issues by Tuesday or Wednesday morning.
