Near-record warmth again, Tuesday and Friday!

A strong area of high pressure has set up shop over the southeastern US. This weather will provide near-record warmth at times through Friday. Monday's record high is 75 set in 2014. On Tuesday, more high clouds move into the area - but a southwest wind should be enough to push temperatures close to the record high of 72 (set in 1997).

A weak weather disturbance pushes in late Tuesday and Wednesday and brings some scattered rain showers to the region Tuesday night through at least midday Wednesday. This won't be enough to cool things down much. Temperatures Wednesday and Thursday afternoons will still be 15 to 20 degrees above average. Some scattered showers are possible again Thursday.

A stronger storm system develops east of the Rockies, setting up a gusty southwest wind on Friday. This will land temperatures in record territory again, perhaps in the mid 70s (record is 72 set in 1982)! Some showers and maybe even a few thunderstorms are possible late Friday into Saturday morning. This front moves quickly, and showers gradually taper off by Saturday afternoon. Cooler air pushes in this weekend, though highs still look like they'll manage to get into the 50s (so just closer to average).


Temperature Outlook: Highs near 70 Tuesday, 60s Wednesday, near 70 Thursday, mid 70s Friday, 50s this weekend, and near 60 on Monday. Lows in the 40s Monday and Tuesday nights, near 50 Wednesday through Friday nights, and near 30 Saturday and Sunday nights (a freeze after very warm temperatures).

Our average high is 51°, low 29°.

Tonight: High clouds moving in. Not as cool. Lows 40-46. Light southeast wind.

Tuesday: Partly sunny and breezy. Near-record warmth again (cooler eastern mountains).  Highs 64-70 (57-63 east). South wind 5-15 mph.

Tuesday Night: Showers developing. Mild. Lows 45-50. Light east wind.

Wednesday: Showers likely. Mostly cloudy and mild. Highs 62-67. Light variable wind.
