Forecast Discussion

Increasing clouds on the heels of an approaching front tonight swings through the region on Saturday. Expect some late-night showers that will conclude Saturday morning. The rain won’t amount to much. Skies will partially clear Saturday afternoon, and it will turn much cooler for Saturday night and Sunday. Novelty item: It’s cold enough late Saturday night and early Sunday morning for a few snowflakes up across the northern NC mountains, the first of the season.

Skies will be bright and sunny for your Sunday, but it’s going to be unseasonably cool. Under clear skies Sunday night and with Canadian high pressure building atop the area, expect a significant frost or freeze by daybreak Monday.

Quiet weather will continue next week with a slow warming trend. Our next weather-maker will probably not get close enough to spread rain into the Carolinas before next Thursday afternoon or Thursday night.
