Discussion

After high pressure takes control of our weather today, low pressure will intensify near the Carolina coastline late tonight and early Thursday. The pressure gradient between the high pressure system and the intensifying Carolina storm on Thursday will tighten significantly and winds will become quite noticeable around here. The increasingly strong NW winds will usher in a very cold air mass for the end of the week and it’ll stick around for the weekend as well. Low temperatures during this cold air outbreak will be near 20 degrees early Friday morning and again early Saturday and highs will struggle to make it to the middle 30’s on both days. Another storm system will cross the country this weekend and likely threaten the Mid-Atlantic region in the Sunday/Monday time frame. This system could feature an initial wave of low pressure headed to the Ohio Valley and then the formation of a secondary storm off the Mid-Atlantic coastline.
