Forecast Discussion

Increasing mid-and-high level cloudiness has dimmed the sun today, although it should remain generally dry. A cold front approaching from the west will push through western North Carolina Wednesday night. Warm weather continues today through Wednesday, with an increasing risk for showers for Wednesday afternoon and evening ahead of the front.

Behind the front, we’ve got some nice, albeit noticeably cooler weather for Thursday and Friday.

We’ve got a split decision on weekend weather. One forecast model camp has suppressed low pressure keeping the weather dry and rather cool for Saturday and Sunday. The other camp would suggest some showers later Saturday into Sunday. We will hold onto the threat for some showers mainly Saturday PM into Sunday, although this weekend does not look like a washout by any means.
