Thursday Preview: More Unsettled Weather Expected

I am sure everyone is tired of the cold, wet weather regime. Unfortunately I don’t have a ton of good news for your Thursday.

The region aloft is in a battle zone between an expansive sub-tropical Ridge over the Atlantic Basin and a large trough over the Western US. This is all funneling Gulf, Pacific and Caribbean moisture into the Eastern United States. With a surface boundary draped across the region, the pieces for continued unsettled weather are in place.

Rainfall will continue overnight and will impact the morning Community for some folks. And even without substantial precip, there will be pockets of mist and drizzle.

By lunchtime, precip may become less concentrated but still an overall damp with little in the way of sunshine.

By late day another concentrated round of showers may try to approach the area, so there is no sign of things slowing down.

If there is some encouraging news out there, cold air damming should break down on Thursday, highs will be anywhere from 15-20 degrees warmer than it was on Wednesday. Latest guidance is running aggressive with mid/upper 50’s. Our official highs for tomorrow is a bit more tempered (low 50’s)
