It’s been a warm week across the southeast this week and that looks to continue through tomorrow . Temperatures in many locations are running 5-10 degrees above normal . But, brief Relief is on the way.
An approaching front will bring a line of showers and thunderstorms to western parts of the southeast tonight and tomorrow . While the severe weather threat isn’t zero it remains fairly low with the greatest risks coming over central Mississippi in the form of large hail and damaging winds . As the system slides to the east on Saturday night it will slow down and attempt to cutoff from the main flow . This will bring enhanced rain chances to the Carolinas . This is very welcomed news as many places remain well below the average rain totals for this time of year. The system slides east late Sunday into Monday morning bringing much cooler air to the southeast. Here is the 00z Euro modeled rainfall output for the Carolinas. We believe this is overdone but it gives you an idea as to where the heaviest rain could be this weekend. Image from wxbell.com
After this system passes and the brief cool down on Monday we warm up again later next week and will be watching yet another system approaching from the west as we head into next weekend
