Super Saturday Ahead

Isolated thundershowers in the Foothills end early this evening. We'll have clearing skies and the coolest night in a couple months. Saturday is just terrific--enjoy! The front that moved through today returns as a warm front Sunday night. After a dry Sunday morning, we'll have potential for isolated showers and thundershowers late Sunday and Sunday night, then increased coverage Monday as the next front from the northwest moves through No hot weather is expected for the foreseeable future.

Forecast Discussion

A front moved through Friday. Cool, drier high pressure is moving into Western NC providing a beautiful Saturday. Nice weather continues into much of Sunday, but today's front returns as a warm front Sunday night. Potential for isolated showers and thundershowers returns late Sunday into Sunday night.

Another weak cold front moves across western North Carolina on Monday, increasing our risk for a few showers and thundershowers from Sunday evening through Monday.

Another disturbance may boost coverage yet again toward midweek.

Otherwise, the thundershower pattern will be widely-scattered, and temperatures will stay near or perhaps just a few degrees below normal through the period.
