Severe Threat Wrapping Up For Monday Night


Now that the severe weather threat is wrapping up for Monday night, we are switching our attention to colder air. Temperatures will drop into the mid and upper 50s, but not rebound much on Tuesday. We could even see some low 50s down through McDowell and Wyoming counties. Some lingering showers and storms are possible this evening, but should generally stay below severe limits.

Tuesday morning a quick round of showers and maybe an isolated rumble of thunder is possible as the back end of our front pulls out of the region. But as the day goes on skies should begin to clear up as high pressure begins to move in slowly from the north. It will be a windy day with gusts up to 25+mph still possible. Highs in the upper 60s.

Wednesday sunny skies and lighter winds are expected as high pressure has a firm control over our area. We’ll see temperatures make a bit of rebound back into the mid-70s for most as winds take a more southerly direction through the day.

Thursday ends up very similar to the day before, just a bit warmer. Highs should be in the upper 70s and low 80s as winds shift more out of the southeast as our high pressure begins to drift lazily towards the east coast and the Atlantic.

Friday, we’ll start out sunny for most with clouds building as the day goes on. Highs should be back in the 80s for most with winds picking up a bit out of the southwest. Overnight the chance of a stray shower will grow ahead of a warm front expected for Saturday.

Showers and thunderstorms are expected throughout most of Saturday as a warm front lifts through the area. This will provide plenty of cloud cover, but also put us in what’s known as the ‘warm sector’ of the storm system keeping us in the mid-80s and fairly humid.

Sunday, on and off showers and storms continue as our moisture feed off to the south continues to provide heat and humidity for them. In addition the cold front attached to the warm front from the day before, is helping these storms kick off as it bumps up against our high pressure out in the Atlantic now.

In the extended forecast, our stalled-out frontal system and our blocking high are set to battle it out for control over the area leading to a hot, humid, and unsettled few days across much of the east coast.
