Forecast Discussion

There are two southern stream weather disturbances affecting us during this forecast cycle, and most of the moisture and energy will likely slide just south of our region in both cases. This is good news if you are seeking a reprieve from the consistently wet winter weather around western North Carolina.

The first disturbance slides by to our south late tonight and early Wednesday. This will cause a bout of thicker clouds and the potential for some light rain late tonight and early Wednesday, perhaps with some wet snow up top. We get a nice sunnier/milder break for Wednesday afternoon and again on Thursday.

The next feature arrives for Friday night and Saturday. Once again, we’re not terribly certain about the northern extent of the precipitation shield, so we have introduced a risk for light rain for Friday night into early Saturday. Once again, some wet snow will be possible at the higher elevations if we get any noteworthy precipitation.

Thereafter, weekend weather will be dry and seasonably chilly. Temperatures are expected to moderate to start the next workweek.
