Forecast Last Updated at Tuesday, September 27, 2022 at 6:05AM

Crisp, Fall Conditions; Weekend Ian

Skies will be bright and sunny today with seasonably cool temperatures. Nice weather continues through most of the workweek, although some high cirrus cloudiness blowing off from Hurricane Ian will enter our skies by midweek. That will be our big weather story going into this weekend. See our Discussion Section for all of the details.

Forecast Discussion

Canadian high pressure will take up residence over the Great Lakes and Northeast region over the next few days. This will promote seasonably cool conditions along with fair weather. You will notice some increasing high cloudiness from the Ian cloud envelope starting on Wednesday and continuing through Friday.

Hurricane Ian was crossing the western tip of Cuba early this morning and will be traversing the warm waters of the southeastern Gulf of Mexico today. It will then head toward the Tampa Bay area as a category three or four storm on Wednesday. The Florida Peninsula will get strafed as it moves NNE.

Here locally, clouds thicken on Friday with rain overspreading western North Carolina from southeast-to-northwest. Saturday looks like a washout with heavy rainfall possible. Rain continues on Sunday, but some improvement is possible if Ian’s remnants don’t get stuck and keeps on moving. Scattered showers may linger all the way into early next week, however.

Rainfall amounts of 2-4 inches will be common, with areas of higher totals along the Blue Ridge. Two weeks of mostly dry weather will help to limit the flood threat, but the potential for flooding will still be present, so you'll want to pay close attention to this one.
