Mostly Clear & Chilly Evening

Tonight will be on the chilly side with few clouds to speak of. More fair weather is in store for your Tuesday, with temperatures a notch milder. Wednesday weather will be similar, with just a slight reduction in temperatures. We have a little bit of rain figured into the Thursday forecast, but amounts should be on the light side.

Forecast Discussion

The weather around the Foothills will be uneventful over the next few days. After a chilly Monday, temperatures moderate a bit on Tuesday. Following a weak frontal passage, temperatures get knocked back down slightly on Wednesday.

A warm frontal feature may bring areas of light rain to western North Carolina on Thursday. Once again, it’s a weak feature, and so rainfall amounts should remain on the light side.

Another southern system might affect us on Friday. For now, we’ve increased cloud cover but will plan on the rain sliding to our south. Whether or not we get any rainfall from that remains to be seen.

Weekend weather is shaping-up fairly nicely right now. Skies are expected to be mostly sunny along with seasonably pleasant temperatures for late-January .
