Pleasant But On The Cool Side Through Tuesday

Sunshine prevails today and Tuesday with temperatures staying below normal. Clouds return Tuesday night with some rain moving into the Foothills late. Wednesday looks rainy and raw with high temperatures struggling to get much warmer than the lower 50s. Cool and unsettled weather lingers through Thursday, before we finally bust out by Friday. Next weekend looks like a 5-Golfball forecast right now.

Many thanks go to the fine folks at Merlefest for another terrific festival. Chilly temperatures Saturday and Sunday did NOT steal the show. The Festival will be remembered for the hundreds of great performances (The Avett Brothers Saturday night was my personal highlight).

Forecast Discussion

After less-than-stellar weekend weather, we’ve got some fabulous conditions lined-up today and Tuesday. Under high pressure, expect mostly clear skies and pleasantly cool temperatures.

Changes commence Tuesday night as low-pressure begins organizing along the central Gulf Coast. The low will track northeastward to a point off the Carolina coast by Thursday morning. In mid-winter, this would be a great track for a Carolinas winter storm; This time of year, it translates to a raw, rainy midweek for the area. High temperatures on Wednesday will be a good 20-degrees below normal.

As the low pulls away on Thursday, we’ll be in an afterwash of upper level disturbances, keeping lots of clouds around and the threat for showers. Finally, sunshine returns to close-out the workweek and it will be much milder.

The weekend looks fantastic right now with warming temperatures and no threat of rain. We’re going to have to run some heat this week, but A/C season is going to be here very soon thereafter.
