Showers Arrive; Continue Friday

A passing light shower is possible this evening with better chances coming after midnight. We expect the lion’s share of the rain to come Friday morning into mid-afternoon. Skies clear Friday night, setting the stage for some fine weekend weather for a change.

Merlefest 2019 launches today and runs through Sunday. In 4 days, you can see: The Avett Brothers, Sam Bush, Wynonna Judd, Brandi Carlile, Steep Canyon Rangers, Amos Lee, Keb Mo, Dailey and Vincent, Scythian, Radney Foster, Kruger Brothers, Chatham County Line, The Waybacks, and nearly 100 other great artists. Weather....After showers (perhaps a thundershower) Thursday night and mainly Friday, we are looking at dry weather for the rest of the festival. See our Hourly Forecast for Details.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front is coming through on Friday. A passing light shower will be possible this evening with better chances overnight. The bulk of the rain will be here Friday morning and ending by mid-afternoon. A thundershower is not out of the question, either.

Behind the front, a nice and dry air mass will be here for Saturday. Another weak front slips through on Sunday with little fanfare, aside from warmer temperatures. A passing shower will be possible late Saturday night or early Sunday morning with this feature.
Merlefest should experience almost ideal concert conditions over the weekend.

Looking ahead to next week, it’s pretty much status-quo springtime weather. A dry and warm period should continue into the middle of next week.
