Terrific Tuesday

Sunshine dominates today and it’s going to be unseasonably warm for late-May. The chance for a shower or thundershower is pretty much nil. There will be extra cloudiness on Wednesday but with only a stray afternoon shower. That risk lingers for Thursday afternoon, then we turn up the heat heading into late week and the all-important Memorial Day weekend. A pop-up late-day thundershower will be a rare occurrence across the western North Carolina landscape Friday through Monday.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front that came through yesterday is stationary over South Carolina today. That will promote full sunshine today and very warm temperatures (as there’s virtually no cooling noted behind the boundary).

The front returns northward as a warm front on Wednesday into Thursday with some extra clouds and a developing southeasterly low-level wind flow. There will be a stray shower for Wednesday afternoon and night, and maybe an afternoon thundershower on Thursday.

Thereafter, we will be under the influence of an expanding subtropical ridge of high pressure at the surface and aloft. That means early-season heat will also be expanding for late week and through the holiday weekend. Expect minimal pop-up PM thundershower chances along with temperatures that will be running a strong 10-degrees warmer than normal.
