Clouds and Cool

High pressure has wedged down the Appalachians with a moist easterly flow. We'll have lots of clouds and cooler than typical temperatures through Monday. However, we'll be mostly rain-free until Monday night. The exception may be right along the crest of the Blue Ridge where fog and spotty drizzle may hold during the day today. Temperatures will be warmer on the west side of the Appalachians than east. Scattered showers and thundershowers arrive later Monday night into Tuesday as the wedge breaks with a warm front moving through from the SW.

Forecast Discussion

A front is stationary stretching from Cape Hatteras to South Georgia to Oklahoma. High pressure centered in Maine holds a cool wedge down the Appalachians. For interest sake, low pressure off the Florida Coast will probably strengthen to a named tropical system (Dorian) early this week but remains off the coast with no direct impacts on the US.

We are in a cool air with a moist easterly fetch. Clouds and cool temperatures rule through Monday. Expect generally dry weather with the possible exception of right along the crest of the Blue Ridge where stubborn fog/drizzle is possible today.

The wedge breaks Monday night as a the stalled front returns from the SW as a warm front. Showers and thundershowers develop Monday night (generally after midnight) and continue into Tuesday.

A front from the NW arrives late Wednesday with a shower or thundershower possible. Then dry, pleasant weather overtakes the region for the rest of this week thanks to high pressure moving into the Southern Appalachians.
