Forecast Last Updated at Sunday, April 20, 2014 at 5:26PM

Chilly Tonight; Dry MON

Even though the Easter weekend didn’t start out on a great note, it finished on a much better one. More sun and milder temperatures was the theme this afternoon. Monday will be dry as well and temperatures will take a small step up. A cold front moves through Tuesday with showers and possibly a thundershower. Temps drop back down slightly behind the front on Wednesday, but nothing we can’t handle. Temperatures begin to go back up by Thursday.

Forecast Discussion

That pesky area of low pressure that gave us some problems over the last couple of days continues to slowly move further away from the region this evening. High pressure building in will briefly keep the weather dry through Monday.

A cold front will swing across the area late Tuesday afternoon or early evening. Along / ahead of the front, daytime showers and possibly a few thundershowers will develop across western NC and SW VA. Rainfall amounts don’t look to be all that impressive…around 0.25” or less. Behind the front, a gusty NW wind will bring slightly cooler air into the area Tuesday night and Wednesday. Up in the mountains, wind gusts of 30-35 mph are possible Tuesday night.

High pressure builds back in keeping it dry Wednesday and Thursday. The next cold front is forecast to reach the area on Friday with another chance of showers and thunderstorms. This front may stall just south of the area Friday night and then return north as a warm front next weekend. How far north the front gets will determine how warm it gets, but in general, it looks unseasonably warm for much of the area next weekend, especially SW NC and the NC Foothills.
