Showers to hold off with a warm day ahead

/ March 15, 2020 at 8:04 AM

Today’s forecast looks a lot different than the NWS forecast that was published Friday evening. (Pesky, stalled frontal boundaries will do that to you.) We’ll see a warm front lift north of the area, allowing temperatures to surge back into the mid-70s this afternoon. Showers should stay few and far between for a fair bit of the day, but an uptick in shower chances will arrive this evening as a disturbance aloft moves through the Carolinas, helping to bring the front back to the south of our area as a cold front. Plan for rain gear late this afternoon into this evening if you must be out and about, but please be sure to limit any unnecessary travel — not necessarily because of weather, but because we all need to do our part in helping to limit spread of the novel coronavirus so we can #FlattenTheCurve and give our health workers a fighting chance.
