A Bit Unsettled this Weekend

A front sneaking in from the east (aka. a “backdoor” front) will bring widely scattered to scattered showers and storms to the area today followed by lots of clouds, areas of fog, and cooler temperatures Sunday through early Monday. The gray weather doesn’t last long, though, as much nicer weather returns from late Monday through the middle of next week.

Forecast Discussion

The backdoor cool front that we have been talking about over the last few days stretches north to south from central Virginia through central North Carolina. The front will continue to slowly push west today and tonight (most fronts move east, not west, and hence the term backdoor front). Along the front, widely scattered to scattered showers and storms are expected today, but we are not expecting anything widespread. Today will remain on the warm side since western NC and SW VA will be on the west side of the front most of the day.

Once the front pushes through, a noticeably cooler airmass will settle in across the area and stick around for several days. Initially, this cooler air will be accompanied by lots of clouds, areas of fog (dense along the Blue Ridge), and some spotty light rain or drizzle from Saturday night through early Monday morning. As usual, areas right along the Blue Ridge will see the “worst” of the clouds, fog, and drizzle while areas to the east and west won’t be quite as bad. Overall, though, a gray end to the weekend for most.

Early next week, a tropical disturbance (currently located very near the Dominican Republic) is forecast to strengthen into a tropical storm or hurricane off the Southeast Coast. Until the system gets better organized, we can’t say with confidence where it will go. However, the latest forecast guidance keeps it just offshore next week. Why this is important is that the system may actually help keep the wedge of cooler air in place across western NC/SW VA a bit longer. At the same time, dry air working in should allow for decreasing clouds on Monday with very nice, seasonable weather for the middle of next week. The next front approaches late next week with a few showers and storms returning.
