Forecast Last Updated at Sunday, April 23, 2017 at 6:03PM

Sunday Night Super Soaker

Low pressure to our south will continue to spread moisture over a wedge of chilly air banked up against the east side of the Appalachians. The result will be widespread rain which will fall heavily at times tonight. An additional 1 to 2 inches of rain is possible. Temperatures hold nearly steady and fog will blanket the Blue Ridge. The low moves very slowly eastward, to a position near Charleston by Monday afternoon. The heaviest rain shifts east tomorrow, but we’ll still be in the soup with periods of rain and chilly temperatures. Conditions improve on Tuesday. A cold front will bring a few more showers Thursday night.

To help us get through the Sunday rainfest, the Golf-O-Meter has been changed to the Raccoon-O-Meter. The prospects for Merlefest include great weather and wall-to-wall music next Thursday through Sunday!

Forecast Discussion

Surface low pressure will slowly wind its way down the Savannah River Valley overnight. This will result in increasing east to southeast flow over a wedge of cool air that has developed along the east slopes of the mountains. This is a recipe for heavy rain, and we’ll see the waterworks in full swing tonight. There will even be a few “elevated” thunderstorms. Much of the Blue Ridge will be fogged in at least through tonight. Additional rainfall totals of 1 to 2 inches are a good bet.

By Monday, the stacked surface and upper level low centers will have made their way to eastern South Carolina. This is expected to shift some very heavy rain into the Piedmont and coastal plain of the Carolinas. However, there will still be upslope flow into the mountains and across the foothills. This means Monday will remain rainy, along with a few periods of heavier rain.

The low continues its unhurried trek to the northeast on Tuesday. It’s starting to wind down a little at that point, and it appears that western NC will just see some morning showers, with much nicer conditions developing by the afternoon. That’s not a slam dunk. If the low slows down even more, light rain and clouds could certainly hang on across the High Country and foothills most of the day.

Wednesday certainly looks nice. But a cold front will bring a few showers back into the picture by Thursday night. Friday and Saturday look quite warm, more like late May or early June. This should make for some pleasant concert-going at Merlefest in Wilkesboro next weekend!
