Forecast Discussion

High pressure centered east of Bermuda will continue to aid the gentle transport of warm, very moist air into the Southern Appalachians and Foothills, while a stationary front is draped across the Ohio Valley and Mid-Atlantic. Over time, a new cold front will approach from the west, perhaps moving through the area early next week.

This evolution of features will aid an unsettled weather pattern for the western Carolinas as we anticipate good coverage of showers and thunderstorms each day. The increase in clouds will keep daytime high temperatures somewhat muted, while overnight lows stay warm and rather humid.

There may be an air mass change if we can manage a frontal passage for early next week. That might allow for some drier air and cooler overnight low temperatures during that time frame. As always in mid-August, frontal passages are rather hard to come by as they tend to get stuck over the Southeast U.S, so the amount of drying remains questionable at this juncture.
