Forecast Discussion

A cold front washes off the map Sunday as high pressure builds into the TN Valley and Mid-Atlantic. Showers and storms move into the coast and we'll have some lingering clouds, perhaps a stray shower early. Tropical Storm Humberto lingers off the Southeast coast, likely to become a hurricane overnight Sunday and into Monday. The forecast track keeps it from making landfall along the Southeast coast, staying offshore.

Our weather for the upcoming week will be controlled by a developing upper level ridge extending from the Gulf of Mexico that builds into the eastern Great Lakes by Monday and Tuesday. High pressure builds at the surface over the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast Monday and lasts through Friday. This setup acts to block our wave train, or (storm track) from the west, in addition to blocking Humberto from probing the Southeastern coast. As a result, we should stay dry through the week. Temperatures will be warmer Sunday through Tuesday but begin to cool down some toward the midweek and into the weekend.

There are no significant rain chances until the upcoming weekend where a possible upper level disturbance could disrupt the aforementioned upper ridge.
