Our next weather system is a strong area of low pressure that is currently over the northern Gulf Coast. As this low tracks to our south, it will increase rain chances from late Tuesday (mainly south) through Wednesday. A weak cold front will move through late Friday into Saturday. This will bring us a few showers, but nothing widespread.
Cloudy skies with a few showers possible mainly across the southern Piedmont. The rain will not become widespread until Wednesday. Lows near 50 degrees. Wind: Light.
Showers will be numerous through the day – heavy at times. There is a Marginal Risk (level 1 of 5) for severe storms just south of our area. General thunderstorms are possible.
