Rain Overnight Dry Monday
Satellite loop shows moisture streaming northeastward from the Tennessee Valley as a cold front moves down from the north. Both features are pretty distinct here with both moving through the area at about the same time. The moisture in the south is coming out about 6 to 8 hours faster which keeps it from meeting up with the colder air aloft to the north. That’s why we don’t expect any snow issues from this at all other than a mix in some colder spots and a few elevated areas.

Echos are beginning to appear on the two local radar shots below. The main area appears to be setting up just south of us so we will watch to see how much of the northern fringe of this pivots to the northeast as we move through the evening hours. The rain should not be especially heavy as we are thinking on the order of about .25 inches or less north and maybe a little bit more south.

We will then transition over to improving weather conditions on Monday with clouds giving way to some sunshine with highs in the 40s though temperatures should fall off into the 30s Monday evening and Monday night.
Tuesday begins the ride downhill with the first of two lows heading our way. Some models are suggesting that the air will be marginally cold enough to produce some snow and sleet late Tuesday afternoon and evening. The NAM and Canadian models are bullish with this idea while the other models while the GFS keeps all the precipitation out until the cold air is long gone. I would probably lean toward the latter view at this point. The second low becomes a major storm for the midwest with heavy rain and coastal flooding implications for us on Wednesday.

The good news is that this storm is heading to our west. Had this been a noreaster offshore with the full moon on Monday there would have been potentially widespread major coastal flooding and beach erosion. Instead we should face something relatively less fierce though there still could be some serious issues for some shorelines from Delaware northeast to Long Island and Southern New England.
