Cooler and drier air moving in

>> Tuesday, October 24, 2017

It was a rough afternoon and evening Monday across the region. As expected, big-time storms worked through just ahead of a cold front, and a number of wind damage reports as well as possible tornadic reports resulted. 

Much quiet weather is unfolding for our Tuesday as drier and cooler air begins to slip into the region. Highs are in the 50s today in the mountains with upper 70s and lower 70s across the piedmont. Tonight, a freeze is likely in many mountain locations, and Freeze Warnings are hoisted for much of the High Country.

Wednesday and Thursday will be fairly cool region-wide with 50s for the mountains and low to mid 60s for much of the piedmont under a sunny sky.  

Our next storm system will roll through over the weekend. Some rain is a good bet at some juncture over the weekend, and then the chilliest air thus far this season will take hold by Monday and Tuesday. 


Severe weather possible later today

Full details on the severe weather threat and a couple of shots of cold air coming our way:


Slow warming trend continues, but changes next week

After another chilly start to our day for Thursday, highs will warm into the low and mid 70s for much of the piedmont this afternoon. Mountain highs will likely be in the upper 60s.....all under a sunny sky.

The slow warming trend will continue through Friday and into the weekend with a dry forecast holding on through the weekend as well. 

Our next storm system will then arrive early in the week. There remains some timing differences among the various computer models, but for the time being, I will highlight good chance for some rain and embedded storms Monday into early Tuesday. 

Following that system, I still expect a shot of the coldest air thus far this season to arrive Wednesday through Friday next week.
