We are in a signature La Nina pattern. Fronts move across the country from west to east lowing potency by the time they reach the Southeast. The bulk of rain remains to our west. We get three of these in the next 7 days.
Yesterday, a backdoor front moved through and stalled just to our south. High pressure shifting off the Eastern Seaboard forced cooler air down the east side of the Appalachians with a moist SE flow. We have clouds and cooler temperatures.
The first of the fading La Nina fronts from the west arrives Monday afternoon. We'll have a surge of warmer air before the frontal passage, then cool air after. A few showers are possible late tonight through Monday afternoon, mostly focused on Monday afternoon.
The break between front is brief Monday night and Tuesday. The second :a Nina front arrives Wednesday. Chilly temperatures will remain in place as showers move through late Tuesday night and through the daytime Wednesday. The potential still exist for a bit of wintry mix Wednesday morning, but it's not even worth mentioning in the daily forecast boxes.
Cool high pressure has tentative control of our weather Thursday and Friday. Friday will be milder than Thursday.
The third front in this series arrives Saturday with rain showers late Friday night and Saturday. Daytime temperatures Saturday will be warmer, then colder air comes Saturday night behind the front.
