Another cold front is settling into the region. Expect returning rain showers through Tuesday with gradually falling temperatures.

Today and Tonight: Mostly cloudy skies can be expected for the beginning to your new week. Thanks to southerly winds of 10mph, the high temperature will be much milder—in the middle 60s. A stray shower is possible after the lunch hour. Much more likely will be the chance of showers overnight. In fact, rain and thunder is expected after midnight in addition to some fog. Lows will be in the mid 50s.

Up Next: Showers and a few thunderstorms will continue through Tuesday—which is looking gloomy at this point. High temperatures will be in the low 60s, beginning a downward trend as a slow-moving cold front enters the region. The showers will continue on through Wednesday with morning lows in the 50s and highs barely back into the 50s. Clearing is on deck for the second half of the week.    

THE SCIENCE:

Forecast Discussion: A southerly flow is returning moisture and warmer temperatures to the region. A fairly weak trough pushing into the Southeastern United States will provide the forcing needed to tap into the moisture return and provide increasing clouds throughout Monday. By Tuesday, a weak front will settle into the area and stall with a parallel southwest to northeast flow in the upper levels helping to kick off a daylong stratiform rain event. Because of that flow being unfavorable for advancing a front farther south, clouds and showers will linger into Wednesday as cooler air is slowly working in along the back of the front. Alas, much cooler temperatures will be in place for the conclusion of the week—highs and lows will be about 10 degrees below average Wednesday through Friday Morning.
