Lead Forecaster Daniel Crawley
Good Wednesday evening to everyone, our next weather feature will start to impact the region tonight and it will last for close to 48 hours. A frontal boundary that on its northwest edge is producing quite a winter storm will push milder air into the Carolinas starting late tonight and going through the day on Thursday. As you can see on the composite radar image that you can find by downloading the Foothills Weather App, we have one batch of precipitation across the Tennessee Valley and Ohio Valley while another piece of energy is moving out of Texas.
Both features will gradually move east and impact the weather here locally as early as tonight, precipitation in a liquid form will move through overnight it could result in some rainy weather for Thursday morning commute. Looking at the future cast below, we expect rain early tomorrow followed by a lull in the action. Late Thursday the second piece of energy currently over Texas will move east and bring another round of rainfall to us going into the early hours of Friday.
Significant precipitation is possible through Friday with this double barrel feature. Rainfall amounts in the 1 to 2 inch range is quite possible with the highest amounts back toward the mountains and the Blue Ridge Escarpment.
