Rain Returns; Strong Storms Possible on Wednesday
High pressure has kept us dry since Friday, but has moved east allowing clouds to slide back in as we prepare for our next round of rain. Low pressure northeast of the Great Lakes will sling a cold front toward our area Tuesday. This front is expected to become stationary near the Georgia/Alabama/Tennessee line and trigger showers and thunderstorms on and off across the region through Thursday as a more zonal flow fades in. There is a possibility of strong storms on Wednesday with damaging winds and hail the main concerns, so we’ll need to stay weather aware. This will be nowhere near the rainmaker we experienced last week. Rainfall totals Tuesday through Thursday night may reach .25″ or slightly higher in some spots.
Yet another boundary looks to sink in with the flow and bring more showers and thunderstorms on Friday. The boundary should push through by Saturday, but we’ll still keep isolated showers in the forecast for the weekend.
Temperatures will be spring-like (BTW- Spring begins at 11:49 PM on Thursday, March 19) and run above average this week through the weekend with highs ranging in the low to upper 70s and lows in the mid 50s to low 60s.
