1258 PM EDT Sunday, May 3, 2015
Mostly dry conditions are forecast today as high pressure hangs on for one
more day. A cold front will ease into the basin from the northwest on
Monday leading to showers and thunderstorms developing in the northwest
basin early on, then eventually across the rest of the northern basin
Monday afternoon and evening. High pressure anchored over the Carolinas
will prevent the front from making much southern progress. An upper ridge
is forecast to strengthen by midweek causing the front to weaken while
providing mainly dry and warm/muggy conditions the rest of the week.
