Soggy Couple of Days Ahead

A ridge of high pressure, a cold front and Tropical Storm Eta will all play a role in our weather this week.

A Flash Flood Watch has been issued from 1 AM Wednesday morning through Thursday evening for Catawba, Alexander, Wilkes counties and points west into the Mountains.

Expect scattered showers to increase  late Tuesday evening and turn numerous to widespread through the day on Wednesday into Thursday. The cold front is the primary reason we will see midweek rain, but due to the clockwise flow around the area of high pressure offshore and the counterclockwise flow around Eta, added moisture will build N/NW across the Carolinas adding to our rain totals. Isolated flash flooding is possible as models project 2-4”+ Tuesday night – Thursday. A second cold front will roll through this weekend which will usher in cooler temperatures next week.

Tonight: Increasing Showers Overnight. Low: 67°. Wind: E/SE 5-10 mph.

Wednesday: Numerous to Widespread Rain. High: 75°. Wind: SE 5-10 mph.

Wednesday Night: Showers. Low: 68°. Wind: S/SW 5-10 mph.

Thursday: Showers. High: 75°. Wind: S/SW 5-10 mph.

Have a great week!Kaitlin
