Rain ending...chillier weather ahead...

>> Thursday, September 30, 2010

The flooding rains that has persisted across a large portion of central and eastern NC will gradually ease eastward today. For the Triad, the rain will largely end by mid-morning. However, the moderate to occasionally heavy rain will continue for much of the day for eastern NC.

Places like the Triad and Charlotte should see a few peeks of sunshine work in as the afternoon progresses. Assuming that does indeed occur, highs will top out in the mid to upper 70s.

Sunshine will return in full force tomorrow and Saturday. Highs tomorrow will be in the mid to upper 70s, and a fresh northwest wind will be gusty at times.

Chillier weather...

A Canadian airmass will settle into the region for the weekend. Lows in many Piedmont locations will wind up in the 40s by Saturday morning, and everybody should be well down into the 40s Sunday morning. Highs Sunday will likely be in the 60s.

The GFS appears to be lost with its handling of the pattern across the eastern US Sunday into next work week. The European, Canadian, and UKMET have largely been in agreement that another upper air low will develop over the eastern US Sunday into next week, while the GFS keeps the trough progressive without a cutoff low forming.

With that in mind, my forecast will mention the chance of showers Sunday through Tuesday with highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s. If we do wind up with a primarily rainy day somewhere in there, highs will likely not get out of the 50s in many spots.
