Forecast Discussion

I'll keep this as short as the weather deserves today.

High pressure moves across the Southeast this weekend. Expect lots of sunshine and modest moderation in temperatures today and Sunday.

A dry front arrives from the northwest Sunday night. It moves back to the north as a warm front Monday. We'll have a few more clouds, but dry weather with continued slight temperature moderation.

The next cold front from the northwest arrives late Tuesday. Low pressure will troll east across the Gulf Coast, but current thinking is that it's too far south for significant precipitation here. I kept a flurry mention just to mark the day for something more nefarious.

Colder air arrives Wednesday and Thursday as the next high moves from the Plains to the Eastern U. S.

Another Gulf low along with the next front form the northwest hold more potential for winter weather Friday.
