Stray Showers Today, Then Clear Sailing
Skies will be partly sunny today and there could be a shower or two around the mountains. Once we get past today, your local weatherman gets an extended break with fair weather for the foreseeable future. Friday through Sunday look particularly appealing, with mostly clear skies and pleasant temperatures through the period.

The weather map today features a wavy stationary front residing over central North Carolina, while a big upper level low pressure system drops southward into the Ohio and Tennessee Valley region. While the upper low won’t move directly over the Southern Appalachians, it will get close enough to generate a few showers over the mountains today.
On Friday, the front inches farther to our east while the upper low retreats to the north. That will allow high pressure to get a foothold on our local weather, and promises to maintain control right through the weekend and much of next week.
We’ll enjoy bright sunshine through the weekend. Daytimes will be pleasantly mild, while at night, lows will be refreshingly on the cool side. This weather regime holds for much of next week.
Tropical Storm Matthew formed yesterday and is cruising westward through the eastern Caribbean Sea. It may become a major hurricane and could ultimately affect portions of Haiti, Cuba, Jamaica and the Bahamas. Its potential impacts on the U.S. mainland remain unclear at this time.
