Moving in the Right Direction

A front is moving south today keeping a continuation of the mostly cloudy conditions and proverbial mention of an isolated rain shower. Clouds decrease tonight with a few sunny breaks not out of the question by late afternoon. Monday brings lots of sun, though a touch cooler. The next chance for widespread rain is Wednesday. We're getting there...all out Spring next weekend!

Today is the last day for MerleFest. The Avett Brothers rocked a chilly Saturday night--one of the great performances in Merlefest history. Today features The Kruger Brothers, Steep Canyon Rangers, Robert Earl Keen, and Dwight Yoakam, but dozens of other performances. See the Lineup for details. The RWC MerleFest Hour-By-Hour Forecast has weather details.

Forecast Discussion

An area of low pressure is moving south through the Carolinas today. It brings a subtle cool front with it turning our wind to the northwest and slowly scouring the low clouds. With the frontal passage we cannot rule out a few showers or periods of light rain mainly through the early afternoon hours.

Monday and Tuesday bring ample sunshine though a continuation of cooler than normal temperatures.

For the middle of the week, low pressure marches along the Gulf Coast from Texas to to the Florida Panhandle and then turns up the East coast. Moisture returns late Tuesday in the form of clouds with rain arriving early Wednesday morning. Wednesday is cool and wet.

Thursday, the bulk of the moisture moves east as the low exits northwards. However, upper disturbances fill-in behind the departing low on a northwest flow aloft. Scattered to widely scattered showers are a result.

Friday into the weekend looks very nice. Temperatures finally rebound to seasonal norms and we make-up for the late April cool spell.
