Forecast Last Updated at Monday, January 16, 2017 at 6:43AM

A Rather Damp Week

Skies will be overcast today and there could be some patches of light rain or drizzle around. Tuesday will be milder with a little bit better chance for spotty light rain into Tuesday night. Wednesday now looks like the pick of the week with partly sunny skies and pleasantly mild temperatures. More rain is expected Thursday night into Friday, followed by another rain event for late next weekend. This week, we expect no subfreezing temperatures around the Foothills, which is pretty amazing given the time of year.

Forecast Discussion

A stationary front situated just to the south of the local area will begin to lift northward as a warm front, passing to our north early Tuesday as a cold front approaches from the west. Cloudy and somewhat drizzly weather can be expected today, with more spotty light rain on Tuesday as the cold front approaches and passes through Tuesday night.

It appears that we will be between weather systems on Wednesday, so we expect a good amount of sunshine along with more mild weather.

The next weather system lifts northeastward out of the Lower Mississippi Valley on Thursday, spreading steadier rainfall into western North Carolina during Thursday night and Friday. After a Saturday break in the action, an even stronger system is scheduled to affect the area toward next Sunday.

It’s a fast and active weather pattern, dominated by weather systems of Pacific origin. With Pacific air flooding the Lower-48, it will remain unseasonably mild all week long.
