Autumn On Demand

Showers and storms will wind down by sunset and skies will begin to clear overnight. Fall began officially today at 3:21 PM EDT, and the weather is going to cooperate with the calendar, with a cool, refreshing air mass invading the western Carolinas tonight. Clearing skies commence tonight, and we’ve got a multi-day stretch of spectacular fall weather starting with Thursday.

Forecast Discussion

A strong cold front heralding the arrival of the season’s first fall air mass will be crossing our region this evening. Showers and storms will end by sunset. Skies clear and temperatures cool notably tonight and the wind will shift to the northwest.

Canadian high pressure gets a strangle-hold on our weather beginning tomorrow, with cobalt blue skies and refreshing temperatures and humidity levels. Low temperatures dip into the 40s for most Foothill locales for both Thursday and Friday nights.

More of the same is expected over the weekend. Another reinforcing cold front passes through silently over the weekend, perpetuating the pleasant conditions. No rain is in sight through at least the early part of next week.
