Forecast Last Updated at Friday, March 31, 2023 at 6:27AM

More Clouds; Stray Shower; More Late

Clouds are back today but with mild temperatures. A passing daytime shower is possible, but most of the rain will hold off until very late tonight and early Saturday. Perhaps the bigger story will be winds tomorrow as we expect gusts in the 45 mph range Saturday afternoon. Sunday will be sunny and tranquil.

Forecast Discussion

Western North Carolina will be situated in a more cloudy warm sector air mass today. While a passing shower will be possible, we have to wait until a cold front approaches from the west to bring with it a broken line of showers (maybe a thundershower) very late tonight and early Saturday.

Rapid clearing occurs Saturday morning, followed by a warm and very windy afternoon. Strong winds just off the deck will get mixed down to the surface courtesy of the strong early-April insolation. Some gusts near 45 mph are possible Saturday afternoon, perhaps resulting in some scattered power outages.

Tranquility returns on Sunday under the influence of high pressure. Expect full sunshine and temperature close to normal.

Warm weather returns next week with moderating temperatures. A storm system emerging from the High Plains will send a cold front our way toward next Thursday, increasing rain chances around or after midweek.
