Wonderful Wednesday Weather

If you enjoyed Tuesday’s weather, you will also love what is in store for today. Expect bright sunshine and mild temperatures, and breezes won’t be quite so gusty. Thursday will have some extra clouds, but will still be pleasant. Rain returns on Friday, along with noticeably chillier temperatures. Weekend weather turns milder again, but with some rain to contend with, mainly on Sunday.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure will provide another fine day of weather for western North Carolina, with afternoon high temperatures running around 10-degrees above normal. A dry cold front will press through Thursday with a few more clouds, but still a nice day.

Low-pressure will traverse the stalled-out front to our south and generate a period of rain on Friday, focused during the afternoon and into Friday night. If we play our cards right, the front returns northward as a warm front and places us in a relative milder break on Saturday and most of the day is dry with partial sunshine.

The wavy front sags back into the state on Sunday with more rainfall potential. For early next week, we’ll be at the mercy of this wavy, oscillating boundary. For that reason, we have a mention of rain both Monday and Tuesday, but don’t expect it to rain all the time.
