Minor Speedbumps

We anticipate a good supply of sunshine today with pleasant temperatures. Thursday will feature a mix of clouds and sunshine along with isolated PM showers. Friday through Sunday look absolutely fantastic for the first weekend of October: Skies will be mostly sunny, and temperatures will be seasonably pleasant.

Forecast Discussion

The weather map is busy today, with a nearly stationary front located over the central Carolinas, while a vigorous upper level low pressure system drops out of the Ohio Valley and takes shape over the Tennessee Valley.

Here in the mountains, we’re sort of betwixt and between weather systems today, so generally dry and nice weather is foreseen.

As the upper low deepens to our west on Thursday, isolated showers will be around (mainly PM) with a good deal of sunshine.

Friday features dry and rather cool weather with plenty of sunshine. Lows Friday and Saturday morning might be jacket-worthy.

High pressure will be in full command of our weather over the weekend, promoting bright sunshine and slowly-moderating temperatures.
