Forecast Discussion

Low pressure in the Gulf of Mexico is spreading precipitation into the Southeast, but not much. Clouds remain tonight with cool temperatures and patchy fog.

Sunday night and Monday, low pressure develops off the Southeast Coast heading slowly north. Meanwhile, high pressure centered in the Canadian Maritimes wedges down into the Southern Appalachians. After some morning sun Sunday, we are in for an extended period of clouds and cool (but not cold) temperatures. Spotty light rain and drizzle develop Sunday night and will be possible all the way to Tuesday.

A potent front from the west arrives Wednesday. Heavier rain arrives Tuesday night lasting into early Wednesday morning. Temperatures will rise ahead of the front (Wednesday morning).

White Christmas? It's not going to happen, but it will turn colder Wednesday night.

Christmas Day looks cool with decreasing clouds. Milder temperatures quickly return next Friday with increasing clouds in the PM hours. There's greater potential for colder weather as we get closer to New Year's Eve and Day.
