Mild today, then chilly again....

>> Monday, April 01, 2013

First of all, let me say that a warm pattern is on the way as we get deeper into April. The Arctic Oscillation (AO), which has been quite negative for a while, and will be through this week, will surge toward positive, as will the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO). This will lead to a pattern of more sustainable warmth as the month unfolds.

But that is down the road. Before that, we will have more chilly weather for much of this week. Today will be quite nice with mild temps and sunshine. However, colder weather arrives again tonight into tomorrow, and I anticipate below average temps tomorrow through Friday.

A storm system will move through from later Thursday into Friday. If this were a month or two earlier, we could be talking about a winter storm for the upper Southeast. However, it looks like a chilly, soaking rain for the region.

See the video for much more on all of this....

Hi Matt,
Hope you had a wonderful Easter. You mentioned in today's video that we will have a storm system come later in the week, and another shot of cold air coming. Although you said chilly rain, given the fact we'll have cold air in place, do you foresee any chance of snow or too warm for it in spite of the cold air in place?

Another thing - is snow really a rare event for Charlotte in April?

God bless, TK

TK.... yes, it is rare. Not unheard of, but rare.

No, I don't see this being a snow-producer. This looks like a cold rain. Below average temps tomorrow through Friday, then we gear up for a much warmer pattern.
