Warm today... cold front moves in tomorrow...

>> Friday, May 10, 2013

Here's today's video.... give it a look:

Highs will surge well into the 80s across the region today ahead of an incoming cold front. I am watching a disturbance back over the Tennessee Valley as well. It appears that disturbance could aid in the development of some afternoon/ evening showers and storms today as well.

Tomorrow will not be a wash-out, but there will be a considerable amount of showers and storms at times as the cold front enters the region.

Cooler air spill in behind the front, so Mother's Day will be cooler, but dry for most.

Highs Monday will only be in the 60s, and I still expect some piedmont spots to make a run down into the 30s for lows Tuesday morning.

The chill won't last long though.... highs return to the 80s by Wednesday.


Warmer the next couple of days... cold front approaches Saturday...

Many spots will make a run up to near 80 or so this afternoon, and then I anticipate low and mid 80s tomorrow.

This afternoon, some storms will fire up in the mountains, and then I expect a few of those storms will drift down into the foothills and piedmont. The same general idea will transpire tomorrow.

A cold front will approach Saturday and bring a pretty good chance of some afternoon and evening showers and storms along with it. Following that front, I am still expecting a pretty good shot of cooler temps for early next week.

Many spots will likely have 60s for highs Monday despite full sunshine, and some piedmont spots could see some 30s for lows Tuesday morning.

Here's today's video:


Scattered showers and storms today.... warmer and dry tomorrow...

The big upper air low will play a role in our weather for one more day. As a disturbance pivots around the upper level low, we will see a good coverage of scattered showers and storms today. A few storms could produce some gusty winds and small hail.

Warmer, drier weather will unfold for us tomorrow and Friday.

Another cold front will swing in by Saturday night and bring the chance of scattered showers and storms again. Following that front, a pretty good shot of chilly air will arrive for early next week.

See the video for much more on all of this, including a few pictures of the South Fork River flooding near Cramerton....


Scattered showers and storms next couple of days...

Take a look at today's video... I look at our big upper air low impacting the region and take a look at what's ahead...

We will remain under the influence of the big upper air low today and tomorrow. A main feature of the upper air low is cold temperatures aloft, and that will lead to the development of scattered showers and storms, especially during the heating of the day.

The freezing levels aloft will be pretty low, so it should be relatively easy for storms to generate hail.

Much warmer weather will be with us Thursday and Friday, and then another cold front arrives by Saturday night.

Look for some shower and storm chances later Saturday, and then we will see another significant shot of chilly May air arrive for early next week.

It is possible some spots could see some 30s for lows by around Tuesday morning.


Upper air low continues to impact the region...

Here's today's video.... give it a look:

A fire hose of moisture has remained aimed at the western Carolinas over the past couple of days. This has led to lots and lots of flooding problems in the mountains and foothills. Numerous mudslides and incidents of flooding have occurred, and a number of swift water rescues have been necessary.

A band of heavier rain will continue to pivot northeastward through the piedmont this morning, and then as we get into this afternoon, scattered showers and storms will likely fire. Some small hail is possible with any storms that do fire.

The upper air low will move right overhead tomorrow, and that will again aid in the development of scattered showers and storms due to the colder temps aloft.

The system will finally weaken and pull away Wednesday, and Thursday and Friday look mainly dry and much, much warmer.

Another cold front will slide through this weekend followed by a decent shot of chillier air by later Sunday and Monday.
