SOAKING RAIN ON THE WAY.

Slow improvement on Easter Sunday.

--------------------

TONIGHT:  
Rain overspreads the area.  Becoming breezy.  Low 47.

SATURDAY:  
Gusty wind with rain.  Rain should slowly tapers off in late afternoon or evening hours, especially north of Charlotte.  High 55.

-------------------

Low pressure will slowly lift northeast from the Florida Panhandle tonight and linger off the southeast US coast through Sunday.  This will deliver a strong, cool northeast flow here with rain.  Rain should taper off late Saturday afternoon or Saturday night.  Easter Sunday looks dry after sunrise.  But, the amount of clearing is still in question.  At least some sun should develop and push highs into the 60s.  Rain totals from Friday evening through Saturday night may range from 1 to 3 inches, with the highest totals southeast of I85.

Rain Chances Increase Tonight, Still Questions About the Easter Sunday Forecast

Current temperatures:
 


Forecast:


 


There are still a few questions about the Easter weekend forecast but one thing is certainly cl;ear, we are going to see a goodly amount of rain over the next 24 hours.

Low pressure slowly working its way northward increased clouds across North Carolina on Friday and it will increase our chances for rain through the night and into Saturday.  Some rain could actually be moderate to heavy into Saturday.  This will lead to most locations see upwards of an inch of rain through the weekend.  Some weather model point toward the possibility of even more rainfall before all is said and done.

The question about Sunday is how fast (or slow) will the low move away from the area.  There is the possibility that we may see a continued shower chance into Sunday.  That chance of showers will be greater the farther east you go across the state.

I any case, most of the rain will occur on Saturday and any showers that occur on Sunday would be scattered and lighter.

The sun will finally return by the first of next week.

RAIN....AND PLENTY OF IT
Sunday looking more gloomy, too

-------------

Models are just that: models.  They don't tell what will happen, but what could happen.  And there are oodles of 'em to look at, compare, and choose from.  Trends are something else...one model run does not a forecast make, but to see a steady trend in continual model runs every 6 hours, that can be more tell tale.  And there are two clear trends showing up the past 24 hours in the Triad: higher rain totals, and a wet, showery Sunday, that looked dry just yesterday.

Rain is emminent as I type, spreading northward from the Gulf and now moving in northwestward from the Atlantic.  A prodigious area of low pressure is cutting across northern FL and will slowly crawl up the SE coastline the next couple of days.  Heaviest rains will fall in the eastern third of the Carolinas, where there will be a lot more wind....for the Triad, less wind, but still rains that are running 1.5"-2" in the models.  Amounts do fall off dramatically the farther north and west you go from I-40, fyi, but suffice it to say we've got a soggy run for a while.

SO many Sunday activities and services planned outside, and they'd do well to have a backup plan indoors.  It's increasingly likely that showers will stay around for most of Sunday, meaning the low pressure area will not be as quick to move off into the Atlantic..which spells a big UGH for many.

Ah, by Monday, sunshine and highs back to the average of 71 will be in place for the rest of next week, when it will feel more like what it should here this time of the year.

-----------

TONIGHT: Rain settles in.  Low 45.

SATURDAY: Rain at times.  High 56.
