Sunshine, Sunscreen & A/C

Saturday features plenty of sunshine and more unseasonably warm temperatures. There could be a renegade pop-up shower or thundershower during the heat of Saturday afternoon, but dry weather will prevail for most. Sunday will have a few more clouds and it won’t be quite as warm, with widely-separated afternoon and nighttime showers and thundershowers. Better rain chances will hold off until Monday.

The Golf-O-Meter is now the Raccoon-O-Meter celebrating MerleFest in Wilkesboro, NC, through Sunday! The Avett Brothers rocked Thursday night. Headliners today include James Taylor, Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Steep Canyon Rangers. But there's music all day on 12 stages from scores of performers. Tonight's weather will be perfect! Enjoy! Saturday and Sunday have mostly great weather; however, isolated afternoon thunderstorms are possible both days. See our Hour by Hour MerleFest Forecast for details.

Forecast Discussion

High pressure at the surface and aloft, anchored off the Southeast Coast of the United States, will provide an unseasonably warm Friday and Saturday around western North Carolina. The warmth culminates Saturday afternoon, when high temperatures will only be a few degrees shy of daily records.

Dry weather is expected, except perhaps for an isolated late-day shower or thundershower on Saturday courtesy of the afternoon heat.

Sunday will be a little bit cooler as we expect a few more clouds, but still warm. An isolated shower or thundershower will again be possible during the afternoon and Sunday night.

A strong low-pressure system emerging into the Plains this weekend will propel a cold front our way on Monday. That’s when we expect better coverage of showers and thunderstorms.

Behind the front, we expect mostly clear and somewhat cooler weather for Tuesday. Another front may bring more rain to the area by next Thursday.
