Weather Briefing for Monday, February 15, 2021

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


OUTLOOK

A wavering frontal boundary near the Gulf and south Atlantic Coasts will provide the focus for multiple low pressure systems to form and pass through Georgia and the Carolinas well into next week. Light precipitation will continue through the weekend, without much of a winter threat, before the next low pressure systems arrive on Monday and brings heavier rainfall to the region. Brief drying will occur through mid-week before precipitation returns again on Thursday.
