Thursday, March 14 Forecast Discussion

High pressure has been firmly planted in the Southeast today, in fact, it is centered just to our north. As this area of high pressure begins to move to our south and east, our winds will turn and strengthen from the southwest, beginning our warm up to above normal temperatures for the weekend.

Highs tomorrow will make it to the mid 70s, a 10-12 degree warm up from today, with still ample sunshine. Through the weekend, highs will increase each day with us potentially reaching 80 on Saturday and Sunday before we all reach 80 on Monday ahead of our next cold front.

The aforementioned cold front will work through Monday night and clear out by Tuesday morning. This front will have mostly showers but we may see a strong to severe storm with it. We are still five days away from this front working through, so there is plenty to fine tune, but it appears the ingredients needed for severe weather won't all be in place, namely upper level support in the form of uplift. Nevertheless, this system bears some watching through the weekend.

Once the front passes, temperatures will drop into the 60s for Tuesday before they rebound back into the 70s by Thursday as we have another nice warm up before our next system arrives to end next week into next weekend.
