Forecast Last Updated at Saturday, April 25, 2015 at 12:09PM

Intermittent Showers, Some Sun

Look at it this way...we've had much wetter days and weekends over the last month or so. Rain arrived this morning and persists on and off at times today interspersed with a few breaks in the clouds. With some daytime "heating" a few thundershowers are possible late today and tonight. The story is similar Sunday with periods of light rain mainly in the morning. The take away for the weekend is wet, NOT a washout. Wholesale drying occurs behind a cool front Sunday night with a few pleasant days early next week.

MerleFest is off to an awesome start! See the Lineup for the whole slate of performances. Today's weather is manageable, but you'll need the rain gear. The RWC MerleFest Hour-By-Hour Forecast has weather details for the rest of the weekend.

Forecast Discussion

Between now and Monday morning an area of low pressure is moving southeast from the Central Plains to the Georgia coast passing overhead late tonight. A warm front wobbles north ahead of the low today and tonight followed by a cool front arriving from the west Sunday. All of these ingredients spell out a prolonged period of mostly cloudy conditions with intermittent showers beginning this morning and persisting through Sunday morning. That said, this is not a steady or heavy rain event with several breaks in the action today and a mainly dry Sunday afternoon. Additionally, convective robbing in Alabama and Georgia this morning put a big dent on rain totals. Late today and overnight, just ahead of the low, a few thundershowers are possible.

Monday and Tuesday are dry and quite nice as another area of low pressure gains steam moving from the Southern Plains eastwards along the Gulf Coast. Clouds increase late Tuesday with showers breaking out Wednesday. It's fair to call it a "chilly rain" for late April with temperatures 15 degrees or more below normal.

By Thursday the low turns north and heads up the East Coast with showers continuing in the morning hours. Thereafter, broad high pressure builds across eastern half of the country. Meaning, we'll get paid back for this weekend in a big way with near perfect May conditions to start off the month and lasting for several days.
