The Return Of El Sol

After a drab series of days, sunshine returns today after a lengthy absence. Temperatures will continue to be unseasonably mild. Under clear skies tonight, however, it will be noticeably cooler than recent nights. Clouds return on Thursday, and rain overspreads the mountains Thursday night, continuing 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

High pressure will be building in today behind a cold front that is slipping by to our east this morning. That will set the stage for plenty of sunshine around the area today, a welcome change. 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.
