PM Showers/Thunderstorms Increasing

Tuesday's warm temperatures gave rise clusters of afternoon showers and thundershowers. These will drift east towards Asheville this evening before dissipating. The rest of the abbreviated workweek will have an uptick in shower and thunderstorm activity. The afternoon "unsettledness" will linger through the upcoming weekend. Temperatures through the period will be a little bit warmer than normal.

Forecast Discussion

Tuesday's afternoon shower and thunderstorm development was focused mainly west of Asheville. These will drift slowly east towards the Blue Ridge this evening before dissipating sometime after dark.

The remainder of the shortened workweek features a good deal of sunshine but with a daily development of hit-or-miss afternoon showers and thundershowers. Temperatures will run a bit warmer than normal for early June.

A cold front will approach the area by late in the week, promoting a bit better coverage of showers and thunderstorms. The front is expected to slip east of the area over the weekend, perhaps putting us in a drier air mass toward next Sunday. We'll have to see where the front ultimately comes to rest.
