Forecast Discussion

High pressure at the surface and aloft will keep us dry with near average temperatures through Friday.

The National Hurricane Center has started advisories for Potential Tropical Cyclone 16 off the coast of Florida today. They did this as it has a better than even chance of developing into a tropical system, and will affect areas to the east of us. This system will move north before making landfall in eastern North Carolina. It appears the moisture and rain associated with this system will not make into southwestern NC so we should have a dry weekend. Saturday will have more clouds and slightly cooler temperatures. Temperatures will be a tad warmer over the weekend.

Monday is similar to the weekend as high pressure settles over western NC. A weak cold front will move in Tuesday from the north and high pressure will wedge down the east side of the Appalachians. This will create cooler temperatures, mostly cloudy skies and a few showers for Tuesday and Wednesday.
