Forecast Discussion

Monday, a cool wedge forms down the Southern Appalachians as low pressure moves into Tennessee. Clouds return tonight; mostly light rain and fog develops for the daytime Monday, and heavier rain arrives Monday night.

Tuesday, low pressure will be off the Mid-Atlantic, but unsettled weather is not finished by any means. Energy left behind in the Southeast develops eventually in South Carolina. In the transition, a few showers are possible Tuesday, but heavier rain (with a rumble of thunder possible) arrives late day and Tuesday evening.

Colder air wraps rapidly in the system. Expect showers Tuesday night and Wednesday. Some snow could mix in at times Wednesday

Skies clear Thursday with cool temperatures as high pressure moves east from the middle of the country. Friday is a bit milder. Clouds increase Friday night, and a few light showers are possible Saturday ahead of the next front approaching from the west.
