Forecast Discussion

Western North Carolina will be in a “dry slot” between weather systems today, promoting some looks at the sun along with unseasonably mild temperatures.

A secondary cold front will arrive by Wednesday afternoon, sparking a few showers. It will be a mild daytime, followed by colder air returning for Wednesday night. This colder period will be with us from Wednesday night through Saturday night.

While chilly, it will also be dry through Sunday. A couple of disturbances riding the northwesterly wind flow aloft will promote periodic mountain snow showers and flurries. However, the weather here east of the mountains will be predominantly dry.

Moderating temperatures will return for Sunday afternoon and will be with us to start the new workweek.
