The chilliest air of the season so far resulted in subfreezing mornings most of the week. A northwesterly flow from Canada has held afternoon readings in the crisp 40s, now moderating to the 50s.

High pressure over the region is providing ample sunshine and crystal-clear skies. The broad fair-weather system is centered over the central Appalachians, keeping our weather seasonably cool heading into the new week, with a gradual warming trend as the wind becomes southerly. A wet weather system drenching the Southeast will pass well to the south of the region.

A weak cold front will bring some clouds Tuesday into Wednesday, but the best opportunity for rain will come Thursday and Friday, followed by another shot of chilly air for the weekend.
