An unsettled NW flow early Saturday will produce a few showers Saturday morning, mainly on the west side of the Appalachians. Skies clear by Saturday evening.

Forecast Discussion

The "weather of our discontent" is almost over, but we still have a couple of issues to deal with before beautiful weather arrives.

Strong storms raced out ahead of the cold front last night. They exited our region early this morning. But the lagging front will rekindle scattered showers and thundershowers this afternoon, tapering off this evening. Skies are generally cloudy today with breaks developing tonight.

An upper-level low will pass to our north late tonight and early Saturday. A brisk NW flow around that upper-level low will keep scattered showers in play Saturday morning, mostly on the western escarpment.

High pressure muscles into the Southeast Saturday and will provide several days of pleasant weather. As it moves east, temperatures will warm on a southerly flow. Sunday is pleasant. Monday is pleasant but warmer. Tuesday and Wednesday are summer-like. I may be a little overly optimistic with Tuesday and Wednesday--a renegade afternoon thundershower is not impossible either day, but warm and mostly dry will be the basic theme.

The next front from the west arrives next Friday. Scattered afternoon and overnight thundershowers develop Thursday as the front approaches.
