Forecast Last Updated at Saturday, December 7, 2019 at 10:46AM

Partly Cloudy; Cool

We have a systematic problem with current weather conditions with our web server this morning. The problem was produced by a change in a NWS server. We will have the problem fixed soon. Sorry for the outage.
But the forecast is a manual operation and continues uninterrupted. High pressure centered in the Northeast is producing a cool wedge into the Southern Appalachians. Saturday has partly cloudy skies with cool temperatures. Sunday will have more sun, but cooler temperatures. Clouds return Sunday night and light rain develops lasting into Monday.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure centered in the Northeast has cooler air oozing south into the Southern Appalachians. We'll have mostly cloudy skies and cool temperatures.

Sunday will be even cooler in spite of more daytime sun. Clouds return quickly Sunday evening and light rain develops in a moist Gulf flow. Mostly light rain continues Monday. Monday will be cool ahead of steady or rising temperatures Monday night.

A front moves through Tuesday evening. Expect rain with milder temperatures Tuesday. Temperatures fall late Tuesday night.

We catch a 36-48 hour break in precipitation Wednesday and Thursday with cold temperatures as Canadian high pressure settles in.

Late next week, we'll be watching a potent low forming in the Gulf of Mexico. It will move northeast. Details? Too early, but here's the current thinking. The low will move from the Gulf and over us or just to our west. Skies becoming cloudy late Thursday night. Friday will have clouds, fog, and rain; however, precipitation may begin briefly as freezing rain or a wintry mix. Rain will continue into next Saturday.
