Strong system to start the week, then pretty quiet…

Rainy and mild conditions are the forecast highlights for our Monday as an area of low pressure and a cold front lift through the region. Some thunderstorms are possible in the North Carolina mountains as well.

Behind the front Tuesday, colder temperatures will arrive, and some upslope snow showers are possible in the Virginias and Maryland. For the most part, it looks like rain showers in the North Carolina mountains, although a bit of snow is possible in the highest elevations. Precipitation amounts Tuesday will be very light. A bigger story Tuesday will probably be wind as stiff northwest breezes will affect the entire region.

Much of the rest of the week looks pretty quiet. A weak cold front will try to push through Thursday before a stronger front approaches for the weekend. The weather looks mainly dry Tuesday through Friday before some precip chances arrive Saturday and Sunday. At this point, there are more questions than answers as to exactly how things will play out next weekend.

Temperature wise, this week will be pretty docile. Highs will probably be in the 50s Wednesday before highs drop again toward the end of the week. The good news is there should be some snow-making temps on quite a few nights.

I continue to think more widespread cold weather will move in during the first full week of December.
