Daytime Rain, Brief Break

Occasional rain will continue during the daytime, then we will get a quick window of dry weather tonight through a good chunk of Wednesday. Steady rain returns by late Wednesday afternoon and particularly Wednesday night through Thursday morning. Some freezing rain will be possible closer to the Blue Ridge, or north and west of Hickory and Morganton, late Wednesday night and early Thursday. We finally clear all of this mess out for a sunny conclusion to the workweek.

Forecast Discussion

Low-pressure and its associated cold front will be riding up the Eastern Seaboard today, bringing an end to round one of the rain by tonight. A wedge of chilly high pressure will then build in tonight and Wednesday before the next low-pressure system takes shape over the Southeast United States late Wednesday.

This next low will take a similar path up the East Coast on Thursday before exiting by Friday. This next shot of rain will have even colder air in the low-levels, or cold enough for some freezing rain late Wednesday night and early Thursday along the Blue Ridge, that is, northern and western sections of the Foothills.

Everything concludes as plain old rain on Thursday afternoon, followed by some welcome clearing by late Thursday night or early Friday morning.

We’re happy to report that the weekend looks dry, quiet and uneventful. Also of note, after this week, if it didn’t rain again the rest of November (which is unlikely), we would still end up with above-average rainfall for the month.
