Storms moving east through TN will attempt to reach western NC later this evening, but should begin to weaken some. Widely scattered afternoon and evening showers / t-showers will again develop ahead of a cold front that dips into western NC Wednesday. Temperatures will drop just a few degrees through the rest of the week.

Forecast Discussion

On the weather map we have warm, humid, high pressure in control of the southeastern US while a cold front stretching from Oklahoma to New York is pushing east. We’re looking at a pretty strong high pressure over the southeast so this front will continue to march east into the Ohio/Tennessee Valleys this evening. Thunderstorms ahead of the front will continue east tonight with some of them expected to reach western NC.

Wednesday we’ll see another round of showers and thunderstorms as the cold front passes to our north and barely dips into western North Carolina. Temperatures will trickle down just a couple degrees though the end of the week. We’ll have a similar story for Thursday with less coverage of showers and thundershowers and more dry hours.

Friday we will be dominated by high pressure with only isolated thundershower coverage and temperatures just a bit cooler. This high breaks down and retreats into the Atlantic over Saturday as our next strong cold front pushes in from the Plains. This front looks to be strong enough to actually make it all the way though western North Carolina and bring a cool down, although it is still a few days out and some uncertainty remains about how strong the front will be when it shows up on the weather map regardless we'll still see a bit of a break from the heat.
