Great Weekend

We have a great weekend of weather ahead with lots of sunshine and mild temperatures. The weather for next week will change quickly. Showers and maybe a rumble of thunder are a good bet Monday afternoon and overnight. Tuesday is dry but cooler and breezy. Wednesday during the day looks dry but more showers return Wednesday night and persist off and on through Friday. Temperatures will be chilly from Tuesday onward.

Forecast Discussion

A mild and sunny weekend is in store courtesy of high pressure. A cold front will move in from the west Monday with warm air ahead of it. The front moves through Monday night and will bring showers and maybe a thundershower Monday afternoon and Monday night.

A strong low will move through the Ohio Valley Monday and bring western NC much cooler temperatures and breezy conditions Tuesday, along with a good amount of sunshine. Wednesday is nice during the daytime but a complex system of a low moving through the Ohio Valley, another low developing in the Southeast and a cold front will bring more showers Wednesday night. Off and on showers will persist Thursday and Friday as the system begins to move slowly. Temperatures will be cool from Tuesday onward next week with Thursday and Friday being downright chilly.
