Sun Hard To Come By

There’s not much sunshine to be had in this forecast. Hunker down and get ready for an extended period of gloomy, wet weather. As far as the details go, we expect a period of rain tonight, a break on Saturday, then some light rain on Sunday (mostly at night). We get another dry window for President’s Day, then another washout for the Tuesday-Wednesday timeframe. Unsettled weather continues for awhile longer after that, too.

Forecast Discussion

Skies have become mostly cloudy today and a period of rain will come this evening and tonight. A cold front moving in will host a wave of low-pressure that will track along it tonight and early Saturday. The rain exits early, so Saturday should turn dry but gray.

Another ripple of low-pressure will provide some additional rainfall on Sunday, although most of that looks centered on Sunday night.

We get a brief break in the action for President’s Day, before a stronger low-pressure system takes shape over central Gulf Coast region on Tuesday and heads to the northeast. A soaking rain is expected Tuesday and Wednesday from this system. A chilly wedge is likely on Tuesday, giving way to milder air by midweek. Freezing rain on Tuesday now looks like a low-risk scenario.

The semi-stationary frontal boundary that will serve as a focus for rainfall across the Carolinas over the next week will probably keep unsettled weather going through at least next Friday.
