Weekend Weather Briefing for Veterans Day, November 11, 2018


Today is Veterans Day and the 100th anniversary of the ending of the first World War. The Town of Franklin will observe the holiday tomorrow, on Monday, November 12th. A parade will take place at 10:30 am from the town hall to the gazebo on Iotla Street, followed by a ceremony at the gazebo that will include Radford Penland as the keynote speaker, a rifle salute, a wreath-laying, and taps.

Here is a video of the local parade that took place in 2009:


Cold and dry Canadian high pressure will remain across the region today. On Monday, a moist low-pressure system will arrive from the south and linger into Tuesday. Another area of dry and unseasonably cool high pressure will build back in on Wednesday. Another rain event is expected on Thursday with a wintry mix to our east. Another cold Canadian high pressure is expected to arrive next weekend with a chance of frozen precipitation for the region.

Weather Hazards

Temperatures will start out below freezing this morning. There may be freezing fog in some locations.

A warm front will set up over the region early Monday, with low pressure moving along the front between Monday afternoon and early Tuesday. As a result, deep subtropical moisture will flow into the region, producing widespread rainfall which will be heavy at times. Some flooding could develop, mainly Monday night.
