AM Clouds; PM Clearing

A front moves across the Appalachians later this morning. Moisture is limited with the front. We'll have AM clouds and spotty light showers in the area. Then skies clear with pleasant temperatures--a very nice afternoon! Low pressure moves along the front to our south late Tuesday. Skies become cloudy Tuesday with spotty, light afternoon rain possible, especially near the Blue Ridge. Colder air arrives on the back side of that low, and a few flurries will be possible at higher elevations Tuesday night. Skies clear Wednesday with cooler temperatures.

Forecast Discussion

The last few days of March have relatively uneventful weather.

A moisture-starved front moves through later this morning. Stray, light showers will dot the region; then skies clear over a very pleasant afternoon.

The front will be to our south Tuesday with low pressure moving west to east along the front. Skies become cloudy again. Stray light showers develops Tuesday aftenroon, mostly near the Blue Ridge. Colder air arrives Tuesday night on the back side of the low with spotty light rain and a few mountain snow flurries.

High pressure takes control of our weather Wednesday and Thursday. Wednesday will be cooler; Thursday slightly warmer; both have mostly clear skies.

The next front from the west arrives Saturday morning. The scenario may be similar to last Friday and Saturday. Clouds increase Friday. Some light rain is not impossible Friday afternoon, but a line of showers arrive later Friday night into Saturday night with thunder possible.

Clouds decrease Saturday afternoon and rain exits. Sunday looks a bit cooler with generally clear skies.
