A cold front is approaching, and will be moving across the western Carolinas tonight. Rain will precede the front, arriving late this afternoon and continuing tonight.
Behind the front, a seasonably chillier air mass will arrive on Tuesday as skies turn mostly sunny. The region will be deeper into the cooler air on Wednesday, so temperatures will be another notch lower.
Canadian high pressure will transit across the area for Thursday and Friday keeping skies generally clear and temperatures quite seasonable.
Another strong cold front will affect the region next weekend with our next good shot for rainfall. A transient shot of colder weather will follow behind the front in about a week’s time.
