Another Super-Soaker

Wet weather is back and will continue into midweek. This looks like another very significant rainfall event, with rainfall totals through midweek of two to four inches. More unseasonably mild temperatures today will be replaced by a notably cooler air mass on Monday. Once we get past midday Wednesday and a potential wrinkle Thursday night and early Friday, the weather pattern will be drier.

Forecast Discussion

A frontal system will be sagging southward into our neck of the woods today, with a cool, wedging high pressure building southward along the eastern slopes of the Appalachians on Monday. Mild weather today will be replaced by this cool wedge on Monday.

The big weather story will be the arrival of yet another heavy fall rainfall event. The rain began overspreading the mountains this afternoon, and will continue off-and-on through Wednesday afternoon. By then, we’ll be soggy and in need of a break from the rain.

A follow-up disturbance passing through the southern branch of the Jet Stream looks weaker than it did this time yesterday. We will still include a chance for rain Thursday night into Friday, although any rainfall appears to be light at this time. Looking ahead, next weekend should (fortunately) be dry.

Temperatures after the Wednesday frontal passage will be fairly seasonable, perhaps running a couple degrees above normal.
