Spring Stretch

On paper each day looks nearly the same with the throttle fixed on auto-pilot the rest of this week. Broad high pressure has settled over the Southeast and we remain absent of any frontal passages through the weekend. That doesn't mean it stays dry. Afternoon showers and thundershowers remain in the "isolated" category today and Wednesday with more of an emphasis on development Thursday and Friday. This is the first stretch of "real" Spring you have been dreaming about, enjoy!

Forecast Discussion

Resident high pressure is the dominating feature on the weather map for the foreseeable future. Basically each day is similar starting off with lots of sunshine and a quick warm-up before afternoon cloud development plateaus temperatures. The combination of low level moisture and daytime heating generates enough instability for renegade showers or thundershowers which fizzle out as the sun goes down.

Slightly better coverage of thundershowers exist Thursday and Friday as the moisture pool increases with a deeper connection to the Atlantic and Gulf. Temperatures also gradually increase late this week and weekend.

Meanwhile, off the Southeast coast low pressure is likely to develop into a subtropical tropical storm the next couple of days and haunt the beaches through the weekend. As it stands now the storm remains too far away for any significant influence in western NC.

Our next frontal passage is slated for Tuesday with the best organized chance of widespread showers and storms. Depending on how the rest of this week evolves we may welcome it with open arms.
