Forecast Last Updated at Saturday, September 24, 2016 at 7:05PM

Record Territory - Then Cooler

Nothing today felt anything like late September with Asheville setting a new record high of 90 degrees. However, this time next weekend will be a different story :-). A front moves through early Sunday with progressively cooler air making inroads beginning tomorrow through much of next week. A shower or two is not out of the question Sunday afternoon with the front in our vicinity. A better opportunity for showers arrives Monday afternoon and night ahead of a more significant cold front.

Forecast Discussion

It's not entirely safe to say, "summer's last hoorah", but it wont' get this warm again until next year. A front approaches from the north tonight slowly sliding through western NC Sunday. Ahead of the front temperatures sky rocketed.

An afternoon shower or thundershower is possible Sunday, but any meaningful rainfall holds off for another 24 hours. Behind Sunday's front a weak wedging scenario develops Monday. We'll have more clouds around Monday, much lower temperatures, and scattered showers developing in the afternoon and persisting into the nighttime hours. We'll take the rain, but unfortunately this round won't do much for the drought conditions.

A second cold front comes through Tuesday. The day begins with plenty of clouds and perhaps a lingering shower yielding to increasing afternoon sunshine. Thereafter, it's rather smooth sailing for the remainder of the work week as modified Canadian high pressure takes control of the East Coast. Temperatures actually drop to slightly below average levels Wednesday and beyond with almost chilly nights. Alas, it will feel like Fall.
