An upper-level troough of low pressure will remain just west of the southern Appalachians today through today, while a weak stationary front remains stalled over the region. The trough will finally move southeast of the area on Wednesday. Until then, increased clouds and precipitation chances will keep high temperatures below normal. Somewhat drier air arrives from the north on Thursday and temperatures rebound to near-normal or slightly above.
