Forecast Last Updated at Wednesday, September 17, 2014 at 12:56PM

Mostly Quiet

Despite all the clouds to start the day, we are not looking at much in the way of precipitation today…mainly a few sprinkles or a brief shower late this afternoon. Temperatures today will be held down for most thanks to all the clouds. Overall, the weather stays mostly quiet over the next few days. Thursday will see fewer clouds and slightly milder temperatures. Clouds do return on Friday, though, and a light rain shower or sprinkles can’t be ruled out. Temperatures will drop back down some on Friday as well. Looking ahead to the weekend, though, it is looking mostly dry with more sun and warmer temperatures, especially by Sunday.

The newest version of the RaysWeather.com app is now available for Android phones and soon to come for iPhones and iPads. The update includes all NWS alerts, a refresh button, SplashScreen, and better choices for font sizes. If you are one of the poor weather info deprived folks who don't have the app, here are the links... iTunes Apps for iPhone and iPad and Google Play Store for Android.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure will build east out of the Ohio Valley today and then set up shop over the Northeast for a couple of days. For western NC this means mostly quiet and cooler weather is expected over the next few days.

Today will see a lot of cloudiness for most as moisture gets hung up along the Appalachians. In addition, a late-day shower can’t be ruled out. With all the clouds and a cooler, northerly flow, temperatures will be noticeably cooler than yesterday for much of the area. Of note, though, parts of SW NC (mainly Haywood County) will see more sunshine than elsewhere which will help temps not be quite as cool there. We begin to lose the clouds on Thursday allowing temperatures to take a step up.

On Friday, a moist, easterly flow will develop off the Atlantic which will bring moisture/clouds back to the area. Similar to today, a few sprinkles or a light rain shower can’t be ruled out, but we are not looking at anything widespread for now. Clouds begin to break up early Saturday as we lose the easterly flow.

The next cold front is forecast to move through on Monday. Ahead of the front, it looks like we will get a quick warm-up on Sunday. Clouds then move in Sunday night leading to showers and maybe a few thundershowers on Monday. This front looks to be fairly strong so temperatures will take a decent dive behind it as we head into the middle of next week.
