Forecast Last Updated at Sunday, September 19, 2021 at 6:27AM

More Clouds; Maybe A PM Shower

There will be more clouds around today, although temperatures will continue to be warm. A hit-or-miss PM shower or thundershower will be around. Clouds dominate early next week, with increasing coverage of showers, especially by Tuesday and Wednesday. Once we get the wet weather out of the way, we have a refreshing fall preview coming, coincident with autumn’s official arrival.

Today is the last day of MerleFest.org in Wilkesboro, NC. Melissa Etheridge closes out this fabulous weekend at Sunday afternoon. RaysWeather.Com is the official forecast source for the festival. Our Hour-by-Hour Forecast is available.

Forecast Discussion

Weak high pressure continues across the area for one more day before changes make themselves felt thereafter. Skies will be mostly cloudy with just widely-separated afternoon showers or thundershowers around.

A strong cold front will be approaching from the west on Tuesday, crossing western North Carolina on Wednesday. While only scattered PM showers are expected on Monday, showers turn more widespread for Tuesday into Wednesday. Temperatures will be held down by the thicker canopy of cloud cover and rainfall.

Once the front sweeps through, skies will clear late Wednesday, setting the stage for the arrival of a refreshing fall air mass. It’s appropriate timing, as autumn officially starts Wednesday afternoon.

We have a clear/sunny stretch starting on Thursday and lasting through next weekend. Temperatures will gradually moderate after Friday.
