Soaking rains return...

>> Wednesday, September 29, 2010

A deep fetch of tropical moisture is getting pulled into the region today, and that process will continue through tonight. The result will be waves of rain that progress through the region from south to north. A few storms could become involved tonight, and I can't rule out the chance of a brief spin-up tornado, mainly in eastern North Carolina.

Rainfall amounts will be generous in many areas. Pinpointing the exact amounts and where exactly the heaviest rain amounts will occur is tricky, but generally speaking, I will say anybody from the I-77 corridor east to the coast is fair game for 1-4" of rain with some spots possibly seeing more.

Today will also be cool with the clouds and rain with most highs in the Piedmont and Foothills only in the mid to upper 60s.

The system pulls away tomorrow, and as that occurs, I will maintain the chance of some showers.

Friday will feature sunshine and highs in the upper 70s to near 80, then a significant push of cool air arrives for the weekend.

Highs Saturday will likely struggle to reach the lower 70s despite a sunny sky. Highs Sunday through Tuesday will then likely only be in the 60s.

I will bring back in rain chances Monday through Wednesday, and if that does pan out, temps Monday and Tuesday could be even cooler than indicated in the formal forecast.

TD 16...

The depression remains disorganized, but there is some chance this could become a tropical storm prior to becoming a non-tropical low pressure area tomorrow. The exact center locations of this one is rather insignificant....large areas of rain and breezy conditions will surround the system for hundreds of miles.

Looks like we're done with the rain here in Charlotte per radar....just some spotty showers. Back east more maybe?

We will see. A lot of modeling insists that stuff will develop back westward tonight. Highest totals will definitely be east, but I would not say Charlotte is done with the rain yet.
