Daily Weather Briefing for Saturday, June 8, 2019







Outlook

A low-pressure system west of the region will continue to pump moisture from the Gulf of Mexico over the southern Appalachians and surrounding areas today through Monday. A cold front will arrive from the northwest on Monday night, but likely stall over the region on Tuesday, with abundant moisture returning through Wednesday. Another cold front will finally push through the region late in the week to bring in drier air from the west.
