A warm front associated with a weak clipper system skirting the northern tier of the United States will pass through the region overnight on Sunday. This clipper’s cold front will sweep through the area during the day on Monday. Both frontal systems may be associated with some light to moderate precipitation and relatively gusty winds.
An area of high pressure will descend upon the region from southern Canada on Monday night and settle across the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning. This area of high pressure will move east and be over the Carolina coast by Wednesday morning. This will bring a return flow of milder air into the region for the mid and later portions of the work week.
Yet another fast moving system will sweep through the region, from west to east, Friday night into Saturday morning, although not much fanfare looks to be associated with this weather maker either. Temperatures will average near to slightly above normal this coming week, with precipitation most likely right around average to slightly below average.
