Tuesday turned into a gloomier day than some earlier projections, but the weak wedge setting in by Tuesday night and expected to linger into Wednesday was expected. This is the result of high pressure that brought us rather chilly weather the last couple of days slipping eastward, turning winds around to the east and southeast, banking moisture against the Blue Ridge mountains. The blue specks on this radar shot shortly after 11 p.m. Tuesday night represent pockets of light rain and drizzle. As winds turn more southerly on Wednesday, we may see some breaks in the clouds, and the sun may even eventually burn through the thin moist layer near the surface in many areas. It should be a milder daywith southerly winds bringing in air that could vault at least some places into the 60s.
The front pushing through Thursday is looking even weaker, with only some scattered showers as it pushes through, and only one day behind it similar to the chill we experienced early in the week before it gets milder by the weekend.
