Forecast Discussion

An upper level disturbance tracking over the mountains and Foothills later this afternoon will generate a stray shower or two; Otherwise, skies will be partly or mostly cloudy today with mild temperatures.

Monday looks like our last really mild day ahead of a strong, polar front that will be pressing eastward from the Tennessee Valley region. A stray shower is possible, mainly during the afternoon and Monday night.

A more solid rain area arrives with the front on Tuesday and it will turn noticeably cooler as the front inches into the Piedmont. A wave of low-pressure will likely develop along the front, impeding its forward progress. Most of the rain will be done by Wednesday morning, but we’ll hang onto a few showers until the wave gets past us.

The rest of the period looks uneventful and fall-like. A reinforcing dry front comes through on Thursday, so it will be briefly milder, followed by much cooler for Friday through next weekend.
