Chamber Of Commerce Weather

Ideal weather highlights a great weekend to get outside and enjoy the pleasant temperatures and dry conditions. No rainfall is expected for the next week or more as an unseasonably dry air mass holds sway. After a couple of cool mornings, moderating temperatures will be the weather trend. We’re not done with summerlike temperatures yet, even though fall officially starts on Monday.

The 2020 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar is on the street!  Visit one of these fine retailers around western North Carolina to pick up a copy.  No worries if you live out of town as they are available for purchase online at RaysMarketplace.Com.

Forecast Discussion

Surface high pressure will be sitting atop the region through the weekend. It will guarantee bone-dry conditions along with abundant sunshine. The air mass will steadily moderate, returning us to above-normal temperatures.

Next week will be warm as we officially kick-off autumn. There will be a cold front that will come through Monday night with little fanfare other than to generate a few more clouds.

It will be a little cooler on Tuesday behind the front, only to warm right back up again for the latter part of the workweek.
