High pressure continues to dominate our weather today and tomorrow. Temperatures stay very mild for this time of year and skies stay mostly clear, other than a few high clouds.
Clouds increase overnight Wednesday ahead of a low system approaching western North Carolina. A cold front slowly makes its way through the Foothills bringing occasional light rain and breezy conditions on Thursday. Rain tapers off overnight but scattered showers return Friday morning, ending before sundown.
Behind the front, Saturday is much colder. Any winter weather will likely stay west of the escarpment. This chilly weather will be a one day event with sunny and increasingly milder weather expected for Sunday and Monday.
