A weak disturbance that moved through the southern Mississippi Valley yesterday is about to exit the East Coast. Temps will quickly rise after noon when clouds begin to break up with forecast highs expected close to guidance. Moving into the overnight period, cooler air will filter into the region as high pressure builds in. Expect near normal lows with temps bottoming out in the upper 40s.
Zonal upper level flow will dominate the beginning of this week and should lead to moderating temps without rain. Showers and a few thunderstorms should return to the local area mid-week as a slightly more amplified disturbance moves right in the path of the one before it. The progressive pattern of rain every 2 to 3 days looks like it will persist into the weekend and possibly beyond that.
