Forecast Last Updated at Monday, August 29, 2016 at 12:22PM

Unseasonably Warm Through Midweek

Today and Tuesday are shaping-up to be 5-Golfball days around western North Carolina. The risk for a pop-up afternoon shower is really too small for us to mention over the next two days. There will be a few hit-or-miss showers and thundershowers around Wednesday and Thursday afternoons before we enter a cooler and drier period late next week and extending into the all-important Labor Day weekend.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure centered north of the state today will provide quiet weather through Tuesday. We expect unseasonably warm temperatures with minimal chances for afternoon showers.

Next up will be a cold front that will be pushing through western North Carolina on Thursday. Ahead of the front, we expect isolated late-day showers and thundershowers on Wednesday, with perhaps a little bit better coverage as the front comes through later on Thursday.

Behind the front, a wedge of high pressure will nose down the eastern slopes of the Appalachians. This will provide a noticeable and pleasant cooldown for Labor Day weekend, and there may be some patches of cloudiness from time-to-time, but presently, the weather looks dry.

Tropics... Gaston became a major hurricane in the Atlantic but will not affect the United States. Two tropical depressions are developing that will affect the Southeast U. S. Coast. The first tropical depression is developing off the Carolina Coast and will brush Cape Hatteras Tuesday night before heading NE out to sea. The second, African-based depression we have been watching for over a week is NW of Cuba. After a couple days cruising the Gulf, it is expected to move across North Florida Thursday night. It then moves into the Atlantic remaining off the coast as it heads NE. These two depressions are in a race to see who gets the next names on the list...Hermine and Ian. But the Atlantic will spawn several storms in the next couple weeks. The Tropical paragraph will be a permanent feature here for a while.
