Sunshine returns today!

Here is today's edition of the video....

After a rather gloomy period the past few days, sunshine will be back with us today across the region, and along with the sun will come milder temps. Highs today should head toward the upper 50s for most.

Upcoming pattern....

A series of disturbances will head our way in coming days, and whether or not each disturbance produces precip around here will be determined by how much they can amplify as they approach the region. This will be very difficult to forecast more than a couple of days in advance.

The first disturbance moves through tomorrow, and it will likely produce a brief shot of snow up in the mountains and then especially as you head up into the Virginias. East of the mountains in North Carolina, I will mention a brief shower chance, but nothing really significant.

The next disturbance will swing through Saturday. Yesterday, the Canadian model amplified the disturbance enough to generate a significant Gulf low that spread lots of precip up into the region, including a nice snow for the mountains, foothills, and even some of the piedmont Saturday morning.

However, most modeling, including the latest Canadian model, are far less consolidated with the disturbance, and therefore, only generate some very light precip, if any at all, Friday night into Saturday morning.

The next disturbance then moves in sometime later Monday into early Tuesday. We will see how strong that one looks as it nears.

Been rough for snow fans.

Worse case scenario - throw the towel and call it quits for this winter, somehow survive another brutal summer (well, hopefully won't be a repeat of last year) and hope for snow again when winter comes back later in the year.
