Low clouds linger east of the Appalachians

Weather Blog

Low clouds blanket the region

The storm off the east coast is having little to no impact on the region other than the cloud cover.  The cool wedge of air that drifted in from the northeast around the high to the north did mesh with the marine air and we saw low clouds filtering the sun from the Appalachians to the sea.  Look for the wedge to linger another day and the clouds will be the prominent feature to start the new work week. 

There is some thought to the potential for some light rain and or drizzle in the region so I have placed that in my forecast as a “don’t be surprised if” scenario.   In other words, the confidence is not all that high that we will see any rain, but it is still a possibility.

As for the rest of the week, after a couple of days in the 50s early in the week, there will be a slow warm up back to the 60s by Thursday.  This warm up will take us above average by a bit so if you enjoy the milder temperatures or just want your heater to get a break, you are in luck this week. 

The next chance for more of a widespread rain event verses a few sprinkles is Friday and Saturday.  At this time the amounts look to be light as most of the rain will fall over the mountains.

Overall a relatively quiet week ahead.  But all that can change as we all know.

Stay Safe.
