Ian to Winston-Salem

It's all about Ian for the next 24 hours, but we will be spared the worst of the storm. Ian made it's second landfall this afternoon near Georgetown, SC. This evening Ian is just west of Myrtle Beach moving north to near Winston-Salem late tonight. The heaviest rainfall will miss us to the east, however we still expect 1-2 inches mostly east of Asheville, and totals under an inch downtown Asheville and points west from there. Thus, we are spared from Ian’s worst, with no flooding concerns. Winds will be gusty today out the north-northwest, with gusts to 30 mph expected. Leftover showers will be around Sunday-Monday, but amounts will be light after tonight.

Forecast Discussion

Ian is now classified as a "post-tropical cyclone". Friday evening, it is just west of Myrtle Beach having come inland via Georgetown, SC this afternoon. It is moving north and will be near Winston-Salem late tonight. It will continue a NNW track into Virginia Saturday.

Rain increased late Friday and will be steady overnight. Winds will gust this overnight to 30 mph.

A faster Ian forward motion means a faster improvement to our weather on Saturday. There will be plenty of leftover moisture and perhaps a few showers, but the day will be predominately dry. More of the same is expected on Sunday as a trailing trough of low pressure might spark a couple of showers.

Once we get past the weekend, it’s a tale of high pressure. Skies will turn mostly clear and temperatures will slowly begin to moderate after a rather unseasonably cool weekend.
