Mild Weather Continues with an Unsettled Weekend in Store

Good Thursday morning...there is a lot going on in the weather world.

A strong low pressure across the northern plains states is delivering a spring blizzard to some and spring thunderstorms to others.

Here across the Southeast, high pressure at the low levels is moving into the Western Atlantic. Low level easterly flow is already pushing clouds into our region, a bit quicker than expected.

For today we still expect to see a mix of sun and clouds with temperatures getting up into the 70’s.

As the next cold front approaches, Southeast flow will increase and upslope showers will likely break out overnight. Friday looks to be a wet day for some as the cold front will slowly trudge east.

That all leads to the weekend and some changes in the forecast. It now appears that we will not get a clean frontal passage on Friday. So look for an increase in POPS for Saturday prior to the next storm system.

By Sunday another strong low pressure will be delivering severe weather to the Mid-South region and eventually the rest of the Southeast US.

The SPC has issued a Day 3 Enhanced Risk centered over Louisiana...and their extended outlook for Day 4 shows a progression of storms into Alabama and Georgia. Will some of this try to sneak into the Western Carolinas? It’s possible...
