A Step Milder

After another chilly start this morning, we take a small step up today. Temperatures this afternoon will be around 5 degrees milder than yesterday afternoon. Still below normal, but some improvement. Clouds build back in on Friday putting a brief pause on the temperature moderation. Some light rain accompanies the clouds Friday afternoon through Saturday morning. Clouds will begin decreasing later Saturday leading to a sunnier, more seasonable Easter Sunday. Seasonable and dry weather continues into Monday.

Forecast Discussion

Changes to the forecast for Friday and Saturday…

Before we get to that…today’s weather will be dry and quiet with high pressure remaining wedged down the east side of the Appalachians. This setup will keep temperatures below normal once again. However, it will be about 5 degrees milder this afternoon compared to yesterday. Temperatures tonight won’t get quite as cold as the last couple of nights, however some frost will still be a concern in spots, so keep those sensitive plants protected.

Looking at Friday / Saturday, the forecast is taking a bit of a turn. An area of low pressure is forecast to develop over the Gulf of Mexico Friday morning, move across northern FL Friday night and then move off the Southeast Coast Saturday. We have known about this potential low over the last couple of days, but it looked as if it would stay far enough away from WNC to create any problems. That has changed this morning as it now looks like it will pass a bit closer to the area and be a bit stronger. Locally, that means more clouds on Friday and Saturday and we did have to put light rain back in the forecast Friday afternoon through Saturday morning. While we did put rain back in, it does not look to be particularly heavy with only very light rainfall expected at this time. The low pulls far enough away from the area by Easter Sunday to give us dry, seasonable weather. For Sunrise services Sunday, we expect partly cloudy skies with temperatures in the low-40’s.

High pressure moving in on Sunday keeps the weather quiet through Monday. On Monday night, the high shifts east as a weak cold front approaches from the west. This front is forecast to move across the area on Tuesday bringing the next chance of showers and possibly a few thundershowers.
