Forecast Discussion

A weak upper-level disturbance moving through the area triggered showers and thundershowers along with additional cloud cover this afternoon. Clouds and some isolated showers or t-showers remain possible this evening and overnight.

Thursday looks like the driest day of the week, with sun and warmer temperatures. Showers and thundershowers are still possible, but isolated in nature.

A cold front at the Mason-Dixon line, along with a Bermuda high, funnels warm and humid air into the area. This will bring scattered showers and thundershowers through early next week. The highest coverage will be Saturday and Sunday. Steady, near-normal temperatures are expected.
