Another Nice Day Coming

Wednesday night is mostly clear with cool temperatures. Pleasant weather continues into Thursday. However, clouds return, and rain overspreads the mountains Thursday night. Rain continues into Friday morning. After fair weather Friday night and early Saturday, another rain event comes Saturday PM into Monday, and that one could be a biggie.

Forecast Discussion

Under mostly clear skies tonight, temperatures will be able to radiate a bit under high pressure, with many valley locales getting into the 30s.

Clouds return on Thursday ahead of a weather system ejecting out of the lower Mississippi River valley. Rain will overspread the western Carolinas Thursday night, and this will linger into Friday, although we do expect to have some late-day clearing.

Saturday starts out OK but the weekend goes downhill from there. We’ll be watching the evolution of a potent weather system that will be coming out of the Plains states this weekend and then moving over our region Sunday and Monday. It appears the Gulf of Mexico will be fully open for business, so we have a chance for some soaking rains during this time period. The system is energetic enough that even some thunder will be possible.

Farther down the road, it appears that a long overdue change to colder weather is poised for the end of next week.
