Expect another round of showers and thunderstorms tonight before midnight. Friday will feature more of the same, including some AM showers and storms.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front is draped across the Ohio Valley and is inching in our direction. It will push southward into North Carolina on Friday, then south of the state over the weekend.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms return tonight. The coverage of rainfall goes up even more on Friday with the frontal proximity.

Behind the front, high pressure will wedge down the eastern slopes of the mountains in a cold air damming configuration. That will send temperatures tumbling back closer to normal, and even below-normal for the daytime. Showery weather will persist into Saturday as warmer air overruns the cooler air near the surface. Sunday looks like the drier of the two weekend days.

These cooler wedge effects will gradually erode as we get into next week.
