Much colder air is on the way today with rain slowly ending west to east. As the colder air settles in, temperatures could fall/maintain highs in the 50s along the Mountains and immediate piedmont. It will stay 60 to 65 in the piedmont to the shore.
Drier air will be in place most of the week with temperatures warming from a cool 50s and 60s Monday to 70 to as high as 80 starting Tuesday. Dry conditions look to persist until next weekend. next weekend could start to be interesting as a tropical system MAY form in the Lower Gulf and could get involved in an eastern frontal boundary.
All for now!
Warm conditions will prevail today and tomorrow with highs in the mid 70s to mid 80s in some spots. Showers and storms will also be possible. The best chance for the showers and storms will be later today (30-40% chance) and then much more likely tomorrow afternoon and overnight. Severe weather is a concern tomorrow afternoon.
A very cool few days will follow with some people struggling out of the 50s Sunday and Monday. Early Sunday looks rainy as well.
Next week looks dry with a slow warming trends from upper 50s and 60s across the regions Monday to upper 70s and low 80s by Thursday.
Monday night could have some frost out west.
All for now!
This has been quite the patch of wet weather. The culprit is a frontal boundary that is semi stationary through the area. If you are north of the front, it has been steady rain. South, has had breaks in rain, but also pretty powerful storms including winds and even some tornadoes.
Today will see some lulls in the rain, but another impulse moves along the front and fires off another round of precip yet again! Southeastern Virginia and eastern North Carolina could see some severe weather as well.
Tomorrow the whole area should have the warm front move through which will bump the temperatures and also the chances of thunderstorms. Some could be severe as well, but the Severe Storms center has not yet highlighted all the area.
Unsettled and warmer conditions will continue Thursday with more shower and thunderstorms. Then Friday, as a front comes through, even more showers and storms. Saturday could feature yet more showers. It is possible that Sunday will be dry!
Thursday and Friday could see temps rise to the 80s in many locations.
All for now!
Cloudy and periods of rain will be the main course of weather the next 5 days!
