Emerging spring time

One of the nice things about the delayed introduction to spring is that in places like the southeast, we haven’t hit the sultry, oppressive weight of summer heat. Such was the case in Anderson last week, when our forecast accurately showed that temperatures would see highs around the 70 degree mark, both on Thursday and Friday. The low temperature dropped a bit on Friday after an inactive cold rolled through, but all that meant is that it was tough to get out of bed on Tuesday morning. Too comfortable! Forecast.io claimed the top forecast spot
Actuals: Thursday – High 72, Low 50
Friday – High 68, Low 39

Grade: B-D

Anderson, South Carolina

I think it is underrepresented just how many people live between Charlotte and Atlanta. One big town after another. Anderson isn’t even the biggest town in the mix. It’s not even the second largest town in the mix, behind Greenville and Spartanburg. Let’s give these forgotten upstaters a forecast, shall we?

At 956PM, ET, Anderson was reporting a temperature of 73 degrees with clear skies. After a cold, rainy day Tuesday, most of the southeast has rebounded nicely. Winds were now southwesterly, tapping into more regionally appropriate air fresh from the Gulf of Mexico. High pressure is fleeting, however, as the mean jet continues to cut west to east through the middle of the country.
A weak shortwaved trough in the middle of the country will tail the feature that plagued the northern portion of the country recently, though with a more southerly approach. The feature will be unable to bring as much cold air south, and an inactive cold front will instead drape across the southern United States. When it moves through early tomorrow morning, it will do so without any fanfare, though Thursday will likely be a hair cooler than today. A well established, more permanent, but slight cooler batch of high pressure will settle in behind the front to take Anderson through the remainder of the work week.

So not a lot going on in Anderson, so we turn to the satellite imagery. I can’t get over how good these new overlays look.
