Increasing Clouds/Fog Overnight
For most, we never fully broke out of the clouds today and even more build in overnight into Friday with areas of fog (especially tonight and Friday morning). A few showers will be around tonight as well. With the clouds on Friday, we expect some spotty light rain/drizzle. The “worst” of the fog, light rain, and drizzle will be along the Blue Ridge and east into the Foothills. Far western areas of SW NC (ie. near the NC/TN border) won’t see as much of the fog/drizzle, but still plenty of clouds. Temperatures will be on the cool side Friday. Saturday starts out with clouds and fog, but conditions begin to improve by the afternoon with milder temperatures. The weekend then ends on a very nice note Sunday with lots of sun and warmer temperatures.

High pressure remains in control of most of the eastern US at this time and will continue to do so over the next few days. Overall, that means fairly quiet weather across western NC. However, there are a few things worth noting.
Later tonight and continuing into Friday, a developing moist, easterly flow off the Atlantic will bring more moisture into our neck of the woods. Locally, this means increasing clouds tonight with areas of fog developing. A few showers will be around as well. Friday and Friday night, we expect some spotty light rain/drizzle to accompany the clouds. Temperatures Friday will be noticeably cooler with all the clouds. The easterly flow becomes more southerly on Saturday which will allow the clouds to begin to decrease later in the day. Temperatures Saturday will take a step up from Friday as well.
By far, the pick of the upcoming weekend, though, looks to be Sunday with lots of sunshine and warmer temperatures…potentially the warmest day of the next seven. It all comes in advance of the next cold front which is forecast to swing across the Carolinas on Sunday night. The front continues to look mostly dry, but a few showers can’t be ruled out late Sunday night into early Monday morning. Behind the front, a cooler, drier airmass moves in for early next week…definitely more fall-like.
