As advertised today has been breezy and cooler than Thursday was. A passing cloud from time to time and if you get into the mountains you could see a shower or two. After a hard freeze tonight the next thing to watch is Tuesday. Tuesday is going to be a wet cool day but we might not get the rain we need. The track of the low is going to follow an old cold front draped across the area but the low itself might fall apart as it runs into dry air across the Carolinas. Therefore I’m not sold on a wash out for Tuesday but I’ll keep you posted.
