The wedge once again was in control for much of the day Monday,
especially in areas east of the Blue Ridge. Showers and
thunderstorms formed early in the afternoon ahead of a cold
front, impacting the majority of our forecast area. These showers
and storms produced mainly heavy rainfall, with isolated
accumulation values greater than an inch in spots. High
temperatures were limited by cloud cover, with areas East of the
Blue Ridge barely breaching the 70 degree mark, while the West
approached 80 with more intermittent sunshine. Fog and a low cloud
deck quickly built back into the area after sunset.
A cold front will continue its trek across the region tonight,
before stalling just east of the forecast area Tuesday evening.
This will provide an ongoing chance for precipitation over the
next several days. High temperatures tomorrow will remain in the
70s while lows will drop to the upper 40s in the mountains, and
lower 50s in the Piedmont.
