Spring Warmth This Week

As high pressure builds in the Southeast later this week, it will help to direct a surge of warm air into many areas east of the Mississippi later this week.

The potential is there for some of the warmest weather since last fall for portions of the South, Thursday into Saturday.

High pressure taking up residence along the southern Atlantic coast during the second half of the week will turn into a giant pump allowing warmth to build and be thrown northward.

In the South, temperatures will surge well into the 80s.

While temperatures will be well above normal with the pattern, most records will stay intact.

In the South, much less of a wind is forecast Friday through the weekend, closer to the center of the high pressure system.
