Dry, Zonal Flow Returns This Week…

Good Sunday evening to everyone, we hope your weekend has been enjoyable.

A cold front moved through the area yesterday and brought a little bit of rainfall to the region. With the current drought in place across Western Carolinas any precipitation is appreciated but overall the amounts were pretty modest and it likely won’t have much impact in the drought conditions for the upcoming week…

The Week Ahead…

Today began another run of several days coming up in which there will be no precipitation across the region. A ridge of high-pressure aloft is centered over the Gulf of Mexico. With it positioned there, westerly winds will prevail over our region through the upcoming work week.

It won’t be until next weekend that a slight buckle in the jetstream brings enough moisture back to the Carolinas to re-introduce showers to the forecast.
