Welcome Rains

Clouds quickly thickened this morning with light rain developing shortly thereafter. The rain becomes steady tonight and looks to conclude a little faster, with showers (maybe a thunderstorm) ending Friday morning. This will pave the way for a fantastic weather weekend across western North Carolina. After a cool Thursday, weekend temperatures will moderate very nicely. All systems are go for outdoor activities Saturday and Sunday before more rain returns on Monday.

Forecast Discussion

Low-pressure moving out of Missouri this morning will head to the northeast, dragging a cold front through the region Friday morning. Today is cloudy with some light rain. Steadier/heavier rain arrives later today and continues tonight. A thunderstorm will be possible pre-dawn Friday before some clearing gets cranking. The afternoon commute looks much nicer than the morning one.

High pressure then moves in for the weekend producing some bright, sunny weather. Temperatures will moderate back to above-normal levels, with Sunday the warmer of the two weekend days.

The pattern of late has featured Pacific weather systems rolling across the Rockies and then ejecting eastward into the Plains and Midwest. That will continue into next week as our next system in the pipeline moves out of the Rockies and into Arkansas then eastward into the Ohio Valley. A round of showers and possible thunderstorms will spread into the state during Monday and Monday night, before we clear things out for Tuesday and Wednesday. Yet another similar system could bring more rain after the end of this forecast cycle.
