Nice, Warm Weather

High pressure will keep the weather quiet across western NC over the next couple of days with cool mornings and warm afternoons. Get out and enjoy it if you can as cooler, fall weather is about to make a quick return over the weekend. That cooler weather will come behind a strong cold front that will move through on Friday with a round of showers and a few thundershowers.

Forecast Discussion

Warm couple of days, then an abrupt change…

High pressure dominates much of the eastern US today and will continue to do so on Thursday. Beneath the high, temperatures will remain on the warm side over the next couple of days with temperatures running 5-10 degrees above normal during the afternoon hours. Overnight lows will still be on the cool side, though, especially tonight.

A strong cold front will put an abrupt end to the warmer weather by this weekend, though. The front itself comes through on Friday with a round of showers and a few embedded thundershowers. Showers will gradually taper off Friday evening as the front pushes further east. Of note, just ahead of the front, a gusty southerly wind will develop during the daytime hours Friday.

Behind the front, a gusty NW wind will bring noticeably cooler air into the Southeastern US for the weekend. Highs will go from the 70’s/80’s over the next couple of days to highs only in the 50’s/60’s for Saturday and Sunday. Some of the highest ridge tops in the mountains may not even get out of the 40’s for highs come Saturday. Overnight lows will be on the chilly side. And, in the mountains, a number of locations will likely drop into the mid to upper 30’s.

Early next week, a fast-moving clipper system is forecast to move through late Monday into Tuesday with another round of showers possible.
