A bit milder today.... lots of rain on the way...

>> Friday, May 03, 2013

Check out this radar show from the 5am hour today.... this is the first May snow in recorded history in the state of Arkansas.

We should see a little bit less in the way of cloudcover today compared to the past couple of days, and therefore, highs will be a touch milder. Still below average for early May though.

That dynamic system to our west is heading our way, and this looks to once again be a big-time rain-producer for the Southeast. Many spots in the Carolinas can expect 1-3" of rain it appears, and some locations in the western Carolinas might even see more.

See the video for much, much more on all of this...


Cool again today... big upper air low headed our way...

>> Thursday, May 02, 2013

No time for a video this morning, but the forecast challenge today will be when/if the clouds erode. I think we will see some clearing this afternoon from east to west, but it will be a gradual process.

Tomorrow looks nice with a good bit of sun and highs in the lower 70s.

Kudos to the GFS... it looks like it won the model battle as to the timing and track of the big developing upper level low this weekend into early next week. It appears the ULL will wind up tracking right over the Carolinas by Tuesday or so.

As for the weekend, some rain could arrive into the western Carolinas by later Saturday, and that area of rain chances will continue to slowly work east Sunday.

I am afraid the Wells Fargo Championship will indeed have some rain to dodge as we get later into the weekend.

Monday, at this point, looks like a soaker, and some scattered areas of rain/ showers will be likely Tuesday and Wednesday as the bug ULL moves overhead.


May arrives with clouds and cool temps...

>> Wednesday, May 01, 2013

The northeasterly maritime flow continues across the region. Many of us will have 60s for highs today under a good amount of cloud cover. Some passing showers will also be possible through tomorrow morning.

Friday and Saturday look pretty nice across NC, but question marks arise soon thereafter.

A big upper air low will form over the nation's midsection over the next few days, and then our weather will depend on the movement of that big cutoff low. I go over some of the model differences in today's video.

For the time being, I still lean with the idea of a mainly dry weekend across NC, but that is subject to change, especially the Sunday portion of the weekend.

Here's today's video:


Fairly quiet overall....

>> Tuesday, April 30, 2013

A maritime flow (northeast) will get established over the next couple of days around the region. This will mean some intervals of clouds and highs running a bit below average. A few showers will be possible as well, especially during the afternoon hours. The best rain chance today will likely be in SC into southern-most NC.

A big Omega block setup will unfold later this week. See the video for the visual on this. But the basic idea is that we will be between storm systems here in the Carolinas. This will result in pretty quiet weather as we head into the weekend with highs running a bit below average.

Here's the video:


Less rain with time today...

What a soaker over the weekend! See today's video for a rundown on some big-time rain totals across the region over the past 48 hours or so.

The shield of rain in the Carolinas will continue to work eastward this morning, but there will continue to be the chance of some scattered showers this afternoon, and then a pretty good blanket of fog will probably form tonight.

An Omega block setup will unfold in the eastern US later this week. See the video for more on what that might mean for our region:
