Goodbye, summer temperatures and hello, spring! The abnormally early heat wave broke, and now we are experiencing pleasantly cool temperatures. We will even see overnight-lows dip into the 20's and 30's for some areas of the state, so be sure to protect your sensitive plants if you went ahead and put them in the ground. Precipitation-wise, very little rain is expected to fall this week, and so the southern drought will continue. We will also experience very dry air (low relative humidity), so the National Weather Service has issued a Fire Weather Watch for most of the state.


Satellite and analysis

The visible satellite imagery and surface weather analysis for Monday, April 9th. High pressure is keeping the sky clear over much of the southeast. In contrast, New England is dealing with a pesky low pressure system that is covering them in clouds and precipitation.

Wednesday Precipitation

The state's main chance for precipitation occurs during the overnight hours on Wednesday as a cold front drifts through the state. Not much moisture is associated with this cold front, so the chances for rain remain very slim.

Wednesday afternoon temperatures

Forecast temperatures for 5pm Wednesday afternoon.

Thursday morning temperatures

Forecast temperatures for 5am Thursday morning. Note that the northern half of the state will be in the 30's, and portions of the mountains will be in the 20's. Be sure to bring any sensitive plants inside on Wednesday evening!
